Books on implementing and using APS Systems are hard to come by and I’ve searched through many product catalogues for a decent one.

Recently I came across the book “Designing, Selecting, Implementing and using APS Systems” by Vincent C.S. Weirs and A (Ton) G. de Kok, printed by Springer.

“Designing, Selecting, Implementing and using APS Systems” is a book I can relate to, have learned from, and plan to discuss with others in the APS implementation world.

If you implement APS systems, are a user busy with an implementation, or are thinking of implementing an APS you will find the book useful.

As an implementer there may be sections that you disagree with, but in general you are likely to find much you can identify and agree with.

The book covers many topics that I have been wrestling with over the years and I plan to use it as a basis of many future blogs where I explore similarities in ideas or differences in opinion.

As I implement solutions in the discrete manufacturing sectors mainly, my comments are likely to be biased by my experiences, however I hope you will join me in these discussions as I deliberate the issues that I find interesting or disagree with
