As manufacturing control systems converge with manufacturing automation systems and systems supporting the back office, IT managers in manufacturing companies are being asked to oversee all their company's IT-including the manufacturing systems. Roadmap to the E-Factory explains what the IT manager needs to know about these unfamiliar systems. It discusses the information value chain, a concept which demonstrates how all computing resources contribute to the success of a manufacturing organization. The material also demonstrates the strategic value of IT, and it includes recommendations for managing the computing resources of a global manufacturing enterprise.
