Dispersed Manufacturing Networks : Challenges for Research and Practice, Hardback Book

Dispersed Manufacturing Networks : Challenges for Research and Practice Hardback

Edited by Rob Dekkers


Dispersed Manufacturing Networks provides new perspectives of dispersed manufacturing systems from three points of view.

The first is that offered by complex systems theory, particularly on how agents in these industrial networks interact and how that provides possibility for coordination.

The book also elaborates on issues of coordination and planning, as well as examining new solutions and challenges for logistics problems and collaboration in engineering networks within the internationalisation perspective. The impact of globalization is discussed for both managerial decision-making and operational performance of supply chains.

A strong emphasis is placed on the need for continuous decision-making with recognition of the fact that networks of loosely connected agents require different approaches. Both researchers and professionals will welcome Dispersed Manufacturing Networks.

It is an informative guide for those researching and working across a range of fields.
