I wrote a book, MTConnect: To Measure Is To Know, that answers the question, "how and why a royalty-free and open source standard is revolutionizing the business and technology of manufacturing."
This is the world's first book on MTConnect and open systems. This book is not just about MTConnect, because I first discuss the many lessons learned in the world of open systems where I spent 35 years in the computer industry at such companies as Sun Microsystems (for over 23 years). MTConnect is a revolutionary game changer that has forever changed manufacturing. The book shows why and how MTConnect is not an evolution in manufacturing, but it is a revolution. MTConnect is making possible the dreams and desires of generations of manufacturers, machine tool builders and manufacturing equipment providers who all want to see the same goal of different devices having a common connection on the plant floor.
Learn how and why the lessons of open systems are being applied to manufacturing and changing the business and technology of manufacturing with MTConnect. It is available at Amazon in paperback and in Kindle format.
IF you would like a color cover and color inside, that is not available at Amazon (price would be prohibitive) you can reach me at my ToMeasureIsToKnow site to find out how.
