It focuses on all research works mainly on production planning. To do so, it proposes a taxonomy of the principles of I4.0 design terms that contemplates the following classification aspects: interconnection/connectivity, decentralised decision making, technical assistance, the human factor, intelligence/awareness, interoperability, information transparency, technology, organisation, conceptual frameworks and production planning. It also presents the models, algorithms, heuristics and metaheuristics of the components used in relation to an I4.0 setting. Finally, a considerable number of reference conceptual frameworks is analysed, which allow the term I4.0 to be defined.
