Manufacturing as a Service (MaaS) is a distributed system of production in which resources (including data and software) are offered as services, allowing manufacturers to access distributed providers to implement their manufacturing processes. This topic approaches MaaS from the value network perspective, aiming at exploiting the intrinsic flexibility and resilience provided by the possibility to use distributed and programmable resources on demand, under real-world conditions characterised by high volatility of the supply, the market requirements and the external constraints.
