The fourth industrial revolution, widely known as Industry 4.0, is realizable through widespread deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) devices across the industrial ambiance. Due to communication latency and geographical distribution, Cloud-centric IoT models often fail to satisfy the Quality of Service requirements of different IoT applications assisting Industry 4.0 in real time. Therefore, Fog computing focuses on harnessing edge resources to place and execute these applications in the proximity of data sources. Since most of the Fog nodes are heterogeneous, distributed, and resource-constrained, it is challenging to place Industry 4.0-oriented applications (I4OAs) over them ensuring tim..
