About the book

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state of the technology Blockchain for Digital Twins by ensuring transparency, decentralized data storage, data immutability, and peer-to-peer communication in industrial sectors. In our book envisages how blockchain can reshape and transform Digital Twins as technology/tools to bring about secure manufacturing that guarantees traceability, compliance, authenticity, quality, and safety. Book Editor in Chief and chapters Authors discuss several benefits of employing blockchain taxonomies in Digital Twins in the literature based on key parameters and levels, design phases, industrial use cases, key objectives, enabling technologies, and core applications. Our team provides insights into ongoing progress made towards Digital Twins as technology/tools by presenting recent synergies and case studies. Finally, our team discusses open challenges that serve as future research directions. This book is presented news authors' ideas of blockchain joint/plus Digital Twins as technology/tools.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
