Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Smart manufacturing is considered the corner stone of the next industrial revolution. However, in order to fulfill the requirements of the fourth industrial revolution, radical process innovations are required on manufacturing systems. To achieve this efficiently, the innovation process should be designed properly. This paper, therefore, investigates which parameters in the innovation process design that influence the innovation outcome in the context of smart manufacturing and thus what should be accounted for in the design of innovation processes for smart manufacturing. The research is based on empirical evidence from 18 manufacturing companies and suppliers of manufacturing technology.
