This book approaches its subject matter by promoting concepts, methods and solutions for the digital transformation of manufacturing through service orientation in holonic and agent-based control with distributed intelligence. The scientific theme of the book concerns "Manufacturing as a Service", developed by virtualizing and encapsulating manufacturing resources, activities and controls into cloud networked services in an open perspective that spans models from shop floor resource allocation to enterprise infrastructure sharing. The papers included in the application space have a profound human dedication and aim at solving societal needs serving the partnership of the future-people and industry in the era of Society 5.0. The book’s readership includes researchers and engineers working in manufacturing, supply chains and logistics areas who innovate, develop and use digital control solutions and students enrolled in Engineering and Service Science programs.
