This text focuses on the management of complex automated systems encountered in industrial research and covers specific technologies and application domains that are cross-disciplinary. It offers broad discussions on the many related perspectives and presents detailed case studies.



Based upon a unique wealth of practical experience, this book exposes complexity as an opportunity to be seized rather than a problem to be confronted and will be of value to all technologists, managers, students and researchers dealing with complex engineering systems.
