    Good book to get some breadth in Smart Manufacturing

    I used the chapters in this book in my Smart Manufacturing class. The students in pairs had to pick one chapter and make a 15 minute presentation. They had to read the chapter, do background research and present the case study - We covered 9 chapters (the students picked their own - but no repetition was allowed). Nice book from that perspective and I will continue to use this
