In the past, the industrial era of mass production and automation systems has become popular. With increased customer expectation, the market has turned into demand-driven. Unfortunately, this new trend of production increased the complexity of manufacturing process for enterprises, which increases the supply chain cost every year. This is also one of the problems that many industries are currently plagued.
