Smart Cities, Big Data Analytics and Digital Manufacturing: Inspiring New Organizational forms and Democratizing the Means of Design Innovation and Production
It is evident that very few empirical studies have been conducted to assess the real business value of smart city-big data analytics in the area of digital manufacturing. This includes the value to the firm, the supply chain, city eco-systems and socially to everyday citizens through enhanced design and production capabilities. The main objective of this workshop therefore is to invite scholars and practitioners to present work that focuses on smart city-big data analytics and its integration with digital manufacturing. We will explore new forms of value creation and enhanced capabilities. Furthermore, we will envision how smart city production technologies could make a social contribution through stimulating new organizational forms, local production eco-systems and citizen enabled routes out of austerity.
