Abstract

This paper gives an introduction about e-Manufacturing strategies, its fundamental elements and requirements to meet the changing needs of the manufacturing industry in transition to an e-business environment. Briefly speaking, e-Manufacturing is a transformation system that enables the manufacturing operations to achieve predictive near-zero-downtime performance as well as to synchronize with the business systems through the use of web-enabled and tether-free (i.e. wireless, web, etc.) infotronics technologies. It integrates information and decisions in data flow (of machine/process level), information level (of factory and supply system level), and cash flow (of business system level). This transition is dependent upon the advancement of next-generation manufacturing practices on "e-factory and e-automation" which is focused on the use of information to make things happen collaboratively on a global basis.
