Ever since Germany announced plans to move towards Industry 4.0 in 2012, the manufacturing industry has shifted from Industry 3.0 featuring computer-aided production systems to Industry 4.0 where CPS (Cyber-Physical System) plays an essential role. As an advanced production system, smart manufacturing incorporates hardware, software, and networks in a factory, resulting in a smart factory where physical and virtual components are integrated. This book provides an insight into the practices of the world's leading manufacturers in smart manufacturing, i.e. Siemens, Rockwell Automation, Fujitsu, and Mitsubishi Electric, touching on their development history as well as major solutions and applications.
