Summary Industrial informatics as a field is currently expanding beyond improving the manufacture of goods to facilitating every aspect of the process, from after-market sales, to service production, sourcing, and e-maintenance, demonstrating the profound impact of informatics in modern society. This book establishes not only a sound grounding in industrial informatics but it also provides a broad state-of-the-art review and shows connections and gaps in the current knowledge for researchers working in the field today.
