The possible benefits, the external characteristics, and the broad-range requirements of information infrastructure systems for intelligent manufacturing systems are widely known. However, it is recognized that various problems are impeding achievement in this area, including the lack of understanding and agreement about techniques and methods for co-ordinating and systematizing the broad-range information processing requirements, and for synthesizing these requirements into deeply structured, easily adaptable and comprehensive conceptual models. This hampers the development of information infrastructures amalgamating the conceptual models and computing/communication/storage techologies, and the development of intelligent manufacturing systems amalgamating the information infrastructures with advanced machine tools and skillful people. This publication elaborates on these issues and affords a greater understanding of, and agreement about, methods, techniques and tools for solving related problems. To ensure an in-depth coverage of the wide problem domain, contributions, sourced from reknowned experts, are focused on some of the most relevant research and development issues.

The book will provide a useful foundation of information for further research and development on information infrastructure systems for manufacturing.
