Produce a 3500-word (maximum) individual report in which you critically evaluate how
an Industry 4.0 (I4.0) technology is driving transformation in organisations. You should
select one type of I4.0 technology of your choice and investigate in depth its impacts on
a selected firm’s operations and its environment. You must critically and analytically
discuss the drivers and the impact of the Industry 4.0 technology which you have
identified, on the relevant business and their performance. You will provide insights as
to how Industry 4.0 has been addressing operational issues and improving these .
You must critically and analytically discuss the current landscape, the drivers and the
impact of the Industry 4.0 technology which you have identified, on the relevant
business or organization performances but also on people and society. You will
provide insights as to how an Industry 4.0 technology has been addressing
operational issues and improving efficiencies, but also provide a critical review of
societal and environmental changes involved, both positive and negative.
The main tasks are as follows:
1. Evaluate how an Industry 4.0 technology is driving transformation in
organisations. You should select one type of I4.0 technology of your choice
and investigate in depth its impacts on a firm’s operations and environment.
2. Critically discuss the Industry 4.0 technology academic research by critically
reviewing appropriate, current academic literature. In your discussion, consider
various Industry 4.0 technological developments in automation and data exchange,
such as Internet-of- Things (IoT), data mining, cyber-physical-systems, cloud
computing, artificial intelligence and blockchain etc.
3. Choose an organisation in any sector. It is preferable to select an organization
demonstrating some industry 4.0 development. A large organisation is
recommended however, small or medium-sized firms could be relevant to analyse as
4. Study the existing impact Industry 4.0 has on the organisation and critically assess
its impact on the operations of the organisation.
5. Critically evaluate drivers for Industry 4.0 adaptation on the selected
organisation. The evaluation should focus on different aspect of Industry 4.0 and the
technologies that support it. Theories underpinning this evaluation must be based on
current literature discussed in part 1.
6. Critically analyse the impact of practices and technologies as discussed previously
on the performance of the chosen organisation. In this part, the evaluation should
focus on both what works and what does not. Possible areas of evaluation may cover
automation of business processes, operational flexibility of the organisation,
competitive advantage in exploiting opportunities, as well as financial impacts.
Support your analysis with relevant literature and suitable findings and evidence
from the case company, when possible.
7. Identify potential areas for improvement and the potential gains from adopting
Industry 4.0 in organisations. Also identify and possible arguments and downsides of
adapting Industry 4.0, such as the effects of automation on workforce reduction,
operational consolidation and efficiency improvement initiatives, which impact on
social/environmental aspects of society.
