Special Mention

Congratulations to Professors Jun Yang, Kostas Kontogiannis, Frank Henning, Tony Straatman, Matt Davison, Miriam Capretz, Mehmet A. Begen, Darren Meister, and all other faculty involved with the Western’s Network for Industry 4.0 in Canada initiative! The project was recently awarded an internal grant, $540,000, through Western’s Interdisciplinary Development Initiatives Program. This is a joint collaboration across three faculties: Engineering, Science, and Ivey, and focuses on the impact of ubiquitous information technology, which enables measurement, monitoring and management across complex supply chains. Industry 4.0 is an emerging topic with important implications for manufacturing and natural resources industries and associated service businesses, and it opens many research opportunities from engineering, to management science, to data analytics. We wish all faculty involved a great success with this timely cross-disciplinary project.
