Dans le cadre du programme du MS MISL, les élèves sont accompagnés dans la rédaction d’un article scientifique qui porte sur un sujet d’actualité dans le domaine des systèmes industriels et logistiques. Ces mémoires présentent une analyse exhaustive et apportent un regard original sur la thématique proposée.

Cette année, nous avons le plaisir de partager l’article « Analysis of the opportunities of industry 4.0 in the aeronautical sector » qui a été présenté dans la 10th International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics: IMCIC 2019, qui a eu lieu à Orlando (USA) en mars 2019.

L’article, rédigé par Ines Guyon (Pr18), Rachid Amine (Pr18), Simon Tamayo et Frédéric Fontane, est disponible dans ce lien.

Abstract: Introduced for the first time in Germany in 2011, Industry 4.0 is a concept based on the fusion between the digital and physical worlds, offering potential advantages in terms of flexibility, productivity, decreased expenses and improvement in quality. At the same time, the aeronautics industry, which has been making significant commercial progress in recent years, is perceived as a sector structured by innumerable regulations with strong hierarchization of sub-contractors at all levels. This hierarchization influences the economic dependence of these actors on their instructors, and these differences and difficulties represent an obstacle to the successful integration of digitalization in the aeronautical chain of production. This article presents an overview of the challenges of Industry 4.0 alongside those of the aeronautical sector, proposing a critical analysis of the opportunities offered by the former to the latter. Our work discusses the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a disruption based on the most important innovations of recent years, which will have a huge impact on the world we know today. It sheds light on the structure of the aeronautical sector and the importance of the “ClockSpeed” factor, due to the amount of technologies with different regeneration rates on board aircrafts. Finally, our analysis highlights the limits of Industry 4.0 and why it is relevant to apply it to aeronautics.
