A mutual combination of various managerial conceptions claims a lot of new opportunities for production managers, such as how to influence effectiveness and efficiency of flexible production flows based on the industry 4.0 concept. This paper is concentrated on the research of actual conditions, active influencing real manufacturing processes and their special process stability as a basic assumption for flexible implementation of industry 4.0 in industrial enterprises. In the real production process, the horizontal managerial concept is confronted with the vertical (digitised) manufacturing concept. The results presented in this paper are based on the research and survey realised in various industrial companies.
Keywords: Process, model, industry 4.0, flexibility.
