I am working on the concept of Industry 4.0 which is the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things and cloud computing. A critical role in the modern manufacturing process and designing smart, innovative and connected products is the adoption of digital models in production workflows.The fact is to call the digital product model, the intelligent design, it must contain not only all the elements of mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software but to fully respond to costumers’ need of uniqueness and innovation it also needs to reflect a foundation of creativity and design thinking which hasn’t been seen in the industrie 4.0 process properly. Therefore, the aim of my research is to rethink the industrie 4.0’s principles and system in order to apply the design thinking methods so that it would result in manufacturing creative and intelligent “Smart Products” which are well-adapted to costumers’ tastes and needs.
