  author={Sang-Su Choi and Thorsten Wuest and Boonserm Kulvatunyou},
The manufacturing industry is transitioning towards smart manufacturing systems (SMS). Small and medium size manufacturers (SMMs) are particularly behind in this transition, plagued by lack of knowledge and resources. Several smart manufacturing capability assessment and maturity models exist to guide the transition. However, support for choosing the right assessment is lacking. This paper proposes a web-based, open source platform for smart manufacturing assessment to support SMMs in this…
