Computer Architecture for Small-Batch Manufacturing

Published

Author(s)

Charles R. McLean, Mary Mitchell, Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr.

Abstract

The advent of fully automated, integrated, small-batch manufacturing control system has been slowed by several problems: the systems are complex, their development is costly, and the technology is not yet mature.  But even more of a hindrance has been the lack of standard manufacturing systems architecture.
