As one of our LISMS group members, Shohin Aheleroff successfully finished his PhD study on April 8th. His supervisors were Professor Xun Xu and Dr Ray Y. Zhong.

His research topic was “Internet of Things enabled Personalisation in the Context of Industry 4.0“.

Dr Shohin’s research aims at enabling industries to fulfil a spectrum of mass personalisation by utilising Industry 4.0 technologies. The primary objective of his research is to form an eco-system, including a general IoT-enabled framework for personalised service provisioning and orchestration beyond the manufacturing industry, including retrofit for value-added mass personalisation. This industry-led R&D brings a more comprehensive concept than personalised consumer products and demonstrates the feasibility of scalable uniqueness, which may not come from individuals but from the nature of the physical environment.
