With the advances in sensor technology and real-time processing of neurophysiological data, a growing body of
academic literature has begun to explore how live biofeedback can be integrated into information systems for
everyday use. While researchers have traditionally studied live biofeedback in the clinical domain, the proliferation of
affordable mobile sensor technology enables researchers and practitioners to consider live biofeedback as a user
interface element in contexts such as decision support, education, and gaming. In order to establish the current state
of research on live biofeedback, we conducted a literature review on studies that examine self and foreign live
biofeedback based on neurophysiological data for healthy subjects in an information systems context. By integrating a
body of highly fragmented work from computer science, engineering and technology, information systems, medical
science, and psychology, this paper synthesizes results from existing research, identifies knowledge gaps, and
suggests directions for future research. In this vein, this review can serve as a reference guide for researchers and
practitioners on how to integrate self and foreign live biofeedback into information systems for everyday use.

Multi-variant products to be assembled on mixed-model assembly lines at locations within a production network need to be
scheduled locally. Scheduling is a highly complex task especially if it simultaneously covers the assignment of orders, which
are product variants to be assembled within a production period, to assembly lines as well as their sequencing on the lines.
However, this is required if workers can flexibly fulfill tasks across stations of several lines and, thus, capacity of workers is
shared among the lines. As this is the case for final assembly of the Airbus A320 Family, this paper introduces an optimization
model for local order scheduling for mixed-model assembly lines covering both assignment to lines as well as sequencing.
The model integrates the planning approaches mixed-model sequencing and level scheduling in order to minimize work
overload in final assembly and to level material demand with regard to suppliers. The presented model is validated in the
industrial application of the final assembly of the Airbus A320 Family. The results demonstrate significant improvement in
terms of less work overload and a more even material demand compared to current planning.

As a result of the increasing interdependencies within global production networks, the importance of an improved coordination of the associated individual processes is continuously rising. In particular, enormous potential is expected from a stronger integration of production and logistics planning and control. While previous approaches have mainly dealt with the integration of production planning and distribution logistics planning, this paper pursues the goal of integrating the procurement logistics and the production perspectives, considering both predictive and reactive components. To achieve this goal, an initial framework for the integrated procurement logistics and production planning and control is developed and exemplified in the context of an aircraft manufacturer within the scope of this paper.

An increasingly uncertain and dynamic competitive environment is challenging industrial companies nowadays. Against this backdrop, companies are focusing on their core competences. They organize their production in global production networks. While the competitiveness of production networks could be maintained for a long time by optimizing individual production sites, the overall network is increasingly becoming the focus of attention. In particular, the elimination of redundant production technologies offers the potential to exploit economies of scale, to bundle technology-specific competences and to achieve an increase in efficiency. The purely mathematical optimization models disseminated in research are unable to consider all the sub tasks of planning. For this reason, this article proposes a practice oriented methodology for reallocating production technologies to production locations in global production networks. The procedure consists of three phases: the investigation of current production technology-to-site allocation in the production network, the generation and planning of alternative reallocations as well as the evaluation of reallocations. For testing its practical suitability, the procedure is exemplary applied to the global production network for forging processes of a medical device manufacturer.

Proceedings of the International Conference on Competitive Manufacturing - Knowledge Valorisation in the Age of Digitalization, Hrsg. Dimitrov, D.; Hagedorn-Hansen, D. & von Leipzig, K., S. 431-437.
Increasing complexity and dynamics in globally distributed supply chain networks makes companies
vulnerable to disruptions and does not only require good and robust planning, but also rapid
troubleshooting as a reaction to unforeseen events. However, companies often neither possess a
targeted approach for the systematic identification and communication of disruptions nor for the
appropriate reaction to a disruption and the minimization of its consequences while considering the
entire supply chain. Hence, this paper proposes a framework for reactive disruption management
which allows for a multi-criteria evaluation and logical selection of measures in case of a disruption.

Industry 4.0 and the associated technological change result in far-reaching modifications not only having an impact on a company’s organization, but also on the people within it. Managers thereby play a crucial role as they form one major component of a successful change process. Hence, the presented Leadership 4.0 training concept was developed in order to further qualify and sensitize managers for new forms of leadership in the era of Industry 4.0. The training module allows production managers to understand how leadership changes through Industry 4.0 and which specific aspects should be taken into consideration, especially with respect to employee management. In contrast to existing leadership trainings, the presented training especially focuses on production environments and is therefore primarily carried out within the wbk Learning Factory on Global Production. This way, changes resulting from digitization and Industry 4.0 can be vividly experienced and transferred to the managers’ day-to-day work.
