Industry 4.0? Even more need for Systems Thinking 1.0

The 4th industrial revolution embraces issues around automation, digital, data exchange and “smart” systems. It includes cyber-security, virtual representation and the Internet of Things. It is claimed it will revolutionise and change the world.  This talk will explore and discuss how the fundamental systems principles of understanding functionality, connections and emergence will still apply.  Systems will become more complex rather than merely complicated, and their scope and impact will expand. This implies an evolution in Systems Engineering practice. At the core of this will be the need to apply Systems Thinking well, and so there will be an even greater need to overcome the barriers to Systems Thinking.

Richard Beasley joined Rolls-Royce in 1986 and after working on Integration Aerodynamics, Safety, Reliability and Life Cycle Engineering, became the Global Chief of Systems Engineering and in 2011 was made a Rolls-Royce Associate Fellow in Systems Engineering.  Richard is a great champion of Systems Engineering and from 2014 to 2016 was President of INCOSE UK.
