A Framework for Production Control Systems
In this book, the framework proposed by Sato and Khojasteh-Ghamari (2012) is used for comparing pull production control systems. It is based on the theory of token transaction systems. This chapter aims to describe the framework and to briefly introduce the fundamental of the theory of token transactions systems.
