How long did it take for you to write the book?
Writing a technical book is definitely more challenging than writing a book on fiction.

Where did you get your information or ideas for your book?
I have had the pleasure of interacting with eminent personalities from the manufacturing and IT industry which enlightened me with a lot of ideas and concepts for encouraging me to write on this topic of “Smart factory”. Apart from this, it gives me profound happiness to say that my father– Mr Ashok Kumar– has been a strong pillar of support in my writing endeavour. He brought in around 35+ years of his industry experience in Supply Chain Management that helped me immensely, as any father would, in writing this book. Without him, this book would have just been a distant dream for me.
