Workspace and Industry 4.0

Mr Chris Rucinski1

Workspace is a proven Scientific workflow and application development platform addressing many of the challenges presented by digitalisation and Industry 4.0. Manufacturing processes often take the form of a workflow, where devices and data are combined with feature detection, situational awareness and optimisation algorithms to enable decentralised decision making and automation. Workspace’s capabilities as a diagnosis and planning system allow the creation and adaption of high performing implementations for deployment and use in commercial and industrial settings. The fourth industrial revolution is affecting all industries. Workspace’s design principles of interactivity, visualisation, scalability, and ease of use in a modular framework make it an ideal platform to explore the possibilities of digitalisation.


Chris Rucinski is a software engineer in CSIRO Data61’s Computational Modelling Group based at Clayton, Victoria. Chris’ primary role is as a developer on the Workspace team with a strong interest in user experience design. Using Workspace as the development platform, Chris collaborates with a range of CSIRO teams to develop software products that model bushfires, hydraulic fracturing, ecology, mining and metallurgy.
