Abstract

Industry 4.0 is espoused by business leaders and policymakers as an innovation concept to capture value from cyber-physical convergence: the exploitation of manufacturing and industrial data to boost performance. In recent years, academics have labelled and promoted their works in terms of this concept, resulting in growth of the research domain. Yet precise definition and operationalisation of the notion of cyber-physical convergence itself has received little attention. We here describe a modular text-mining approach that builds on the technological underpinnings of Industry 4.0 to operationalise convergence. In doing so, we identify a list of relevant keywords that corrspond to five data-centric capabilities: Monitoring, Analytics, Modelling, Transmission and Security. These capabilities set the stage for further bibliometric work to systematically delineate the convergence research domain and track its growth, as it interacts with Industry 4.0.
