This timely Handbook examines the rapidly expanding research area of digital platforms and business ecosystems in the context of manufacturing industries. Chapters analyze core topics such as business model transformation, ecosystem design, and governance, offering an up-to-date overview of crucial research.

Multidisciplinary in scope, the Handbook includes rigorously researched contributions from over 60 global experts from a variety of areas including management, computer science, and industrial engineering. Chapters explore a wealth of industry applications, bridging the previous research gap between the study of digital platforms and other prominent disciplines by proposing an integrated approach to manufacturing. Ultimately, this erudite Handbook emphasizes the superior resilience of ecosystem-based platforms in addressing any potential supply chain disruption.

Scholars and students of business administration, economics and computer science will find this book to be of great benefit. Due to its practical scope, it will also be valuable for practitioners in management fields.
Critical Acclaim
‘Digitalisation is affecting the way organisations design, produce and deliver both products and services. This timely Handbook examines the phenomenon of Digital Business Ecosystems in the manufacturing world, examining how digitalization is transforming business models, supporting sustainability and circularity, as well as wider issues around designing and governing emerging digital ecosystems. Contributors working at the leading edge of digital business and manufacturing systems provide up to date studies with many contemporary examples, cases and applications throughout. It is highly recommended for those working in the digital transformation field.’
– Bart L. MacCarthy, University of Nottingham, UK

''The Handbook on Digital Platforms and Business Ecosystems in Manufacturing is timely, relevant, and interesting. The topics and chapters in this Handbook are excellent for supply chain and information systems graduate courses. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the intersection of technology and manufacturing.’
– Kevin Scheibe, Iowa State University, US

‘Frenetic developments in digital technologies are rapidly disrupting industry and manufacturing. Traditional business practices are being rendered obsolete, organizational and geographical boundaries have become porous, and hierarchical value chains are giving way to collaborative, sustainable networks. This Handbook will enable researchers and practitioners to assess the states of the art and practice, identify opportunities for extending them, and exploit best practices for navigating the transformation of the manufacturing ecosystem.’
– Tariq Samad, University of Minnesota, US
