Designing Workforce Management Systems for Industry 4.0: Data-Centric and AI-Enabled Approaches. In the era of industry revolution 4.0, we are seeing a host of powerful Data-centric approaches, IoT technologies, Cloud-based services, AI algorithms, Machine learning models, Deep learning frameworks, Data Analytics, and Data Visualization aimed at supporting or replacing the human management capabilities in workforce management system (WMS) system. Therefore, human is eager to leverage the most multi-faceted Data-centric approaches, AI-enabled application and emerging technologies to develop, deploy and deliver next-generation workforce management systems.

The book brings insight into the workforce management system and offers Data-centric approaches and AI-enabled applications for implementing the strategies of workforce development and management. It includes current developments in the future directions and covers the concept of the HCM systems along with their sub-systems. It focuses on the mechanisms of proposing solutions along with architectural concepts, design principles, smart solutions, and intelligent prediction with visualization simulation for the modern workforce management system by focusing mainly on six areas of infrastructure that are based on entities: Workforce AI-enabled Applications, Workforce Data Analytics, Human Capital Management, HR Data Visualization, Workforce Predictive Models in Industry 4.0, and including Cloud Computing for the development of the Workforce Management System.

We really believe that the models and applications of the “Designing Workforce Management Systems for Industry 4.0: Data-Centric and AI-Enabled Approaches.” book will favor the people's aspirations.
