Since its inception in 1978, the IFIP Working Group 5.7 on Advances in Production Management Systems (APMS) has played an active role in the conception, development, and application of innovative strategies, frameworks, architectures, processes, methods, and tools for the advancement of the field of production and production management in academia and industry. In this field, the IFIP WG5.7 has helped to shape the progress of both scientific theories and industrial practices. This achievement is driven by an emphasis on the continuous development and refinement of research inspired by excellences in industrial practices while maintaining academic sophistication and scientific rigour. More recently, in light of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), the field has been experiencing a remarkable (r)evolution and disruptive changes. This triggered by the fusion of advanced operational and information technologies, innovative operating and business models, as well as social and environmental pressures for more sustainable production systems. This chapter reviews past and present issues and trends to establish a coherent vision and research agenda for the IFIP WG5.7 and its international community. The chapter covers a wide range of production aspects and resources required to design, engineer, and manage the next generation of sustainable and smart production systems.
