Abstract

Cyber-physical production systems (CPPS) represent a relevant aspect related to industry 4.0 and the advances promoted by the digitization and use of artificial intelligence in the production environment in the search for the development of smart factories. This study aims to assess the maturity level of cyber-physical production system (CPPS) within manufacturing industries in the Amazon. The research uses a quali-quantitative approach to analyze the problem by conducting exploratory case studies (indepth case) and the research framework used aimed to evaluate and measure the CPPS within three manufacturing industries in the Amazon (n"‰="‰3) to measure their maturity. Findings reveal a positive relationship between the type of production system adopted by the company, the level of automation, and the maturity of the CPPS. The proposed methodology can assist other companies in the development of the technological strategy, supporting the digital transformation process in order to obtain competitive advantage. The study contributes by addressing the topic of cyber-physical production systems from the point of view of operations management and strategy.
