Optimization of Manufacturing Systems Using the Internet of Things extends the IoT (Internet of Things) into the manufacturing field to develop an IoMT (Internet of Manufacturing Things) architecture with real-time traceability, visibility, and interoperability in production planning, execution, and control. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the optimization and control of an intelligent manufacturing system.

As modern manufacturing shop-floors can create bottlenecks in the capturing and collection of real-time field information, and because paper-based manual systems are time-consuming and prone to errors, this book helps readers understand how to alleviate these issues, assisting them in their decision-making on shop-floors.

Key Features

  • Includes case studies in implementing IoTs for data acquisition, monitoring, and assembly in manufacturing.
  • Helps manufacturers to tackle the growing complexities and uncertainties of manufacturing systems in globalized business environments
  • Acts as an introduction to using IoT for readers across industrial and manufacturing engineering


Graduate students and researchers in manufacturing engineering and operations management; operations managers, control engineers, systems engineers at large manufacturers
