Maturity Models and Tools for Enabling Smart Manufacturing Systems: Comparison and Reflections for Future Developments

  title={Maturity Models and Tools for Enabling Smart Manufacturing Systems: Comparison and Reflections for Future Developments},
  author={Anna De Carolis and Marco Macchi and Boonserm Kulvatunyou and Michael P. Brundage and Sergio Terzi},
One of the most exciting new capabilities in Smart Manufacturing (SM) and Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) is the provisioning of manufacturing services as unbundled “apps or services”, which could be significantly more flexible and less expensive to use than the current generation of monolithic manufacturing applications. However, bundling and integrating heterogeneous services in the form of such apps or composite services is not a trivial job. There is a need for service vendors…
