Industry 4.0 focuses on the realization of smart manufacturing based on cyber-physical systems (CPS). However, emerging Industry 5.0 and Society 5.0 reaches beyond CPS and covers the entire value chain of manufacturing, and faces economic, environmental, and social challenges. To meet such challenges, we regard Industry 5.0 as a socio-technical revolution based on the socio-cyber-physical system (SCPS), and propose a socio-technically enhanced wisdom manufacturing architecture and framework beyond CPS-based Industry 4.0/smart manufacturing with especially concerning transition enabling technologies such as artificial intelligence, social Internet of Things (SIoT), big data, machine learning, edge computing, social computing, 3D printing, blockchains, digital twins, and cobots. Finally we address the roadmap to blockchainized value-added SCPS-based Industrial Metaverse for Industry/Society 5.0, which will achieve high utilization of resources and provide products and services to satisfy experience-driven individual needs via metamanufacturing cloud services towards smart, resilient, sustainable, and human-centric solutions.
