Assuming technological development progresses at the current speed, we have to accept that we are skating on thin ice. With that I mean the old uncertainty in software development on the customers’ side (with always new extension wishes) as well as on the technology side with ever faster processing speeds and new technical possibilities. Which in practical terms means always more money and never a finished project. In addition to that we have a lack of technical understanding on the customer’s side, combined with a theory-infatuation on the programmer’s side.
What’s appealing about this book is that it doesn’t get too carried away with either the technology or the theory behind the IoT, smart manufacturing, etc. and gives you the confidence to skate on thin ice rather than just stand on the sidelines.
Because there are a lot of similarities in manufacturing, I found the authors approach of using specific examples really helpful. Often these types of books are void of real world applications and are therefore difficult to apply to your problems. Trying to improve your manufacturing processes can be daunting, especially today with so much information and technology choices. This book shows how simple it can be to make a start as long as you have the right approach and people involved.
Whether you are a decision maker in manufacturing projects or just on any level somehow involved in them, this book is well worth a read.
It flowed seamlessly and kept me interested from beginning to end!
I purchased this great read with complete confidence and it didn't disappoint. I would highly recommend it to anyone with a passion for technological advancements, but especially those involved in the manufacturing industry!
Agile Software Development to handle complex problems and exploratory problems can help to implement the industry 4.0 mass customized process even for a SME.
