About the book
In the intelligent era, in order to flexibly meet the personalized customer demand, the manufacturing system is required to carry out all-round innovation in technology, equipment, organization mode, and development mode, promoting all links of mass data collection, transmission, processing, and application in the whole product life cycle. With the manufacturing environment becoming more and more complex, its smooth operation strongly depends on whether the system has good robustness. Robust control plays an increasingly important role in the control of the modern manufacturing system. At the micro-level, the robustness of the manufacturing system is reflected in the collaborative and coherent effects among the components at all levels of the system, and at the macro level, it is reflected in the ability of the manufacturing system to maintain the desired external behavior or structural characteristics.
Focused on modern manufacturing systems, this book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in robust control research and its innovative application in manufacturing information systems and intelligent manufacturing.
