"...quite informative, touching on most aspects of configuration...a good reference if your work involves configuration systems. There are also plenty of references to related items in the literature." --Computing Reviews "This book is an excellent introduction and overview of the field of Configuration Systems. It covers the most important developments in the field.", August 2014 "I've always said that the key to mass customizing is a design tool that helps customers figure out what they want and then gets that information back into operations. Now here comes Knowledge-Based Configuration to guide you through the technologies behind such design tools. You won't truly understand Mass Customization without it!" --B.

A source of inspiration that promises to broaden the scope of configuration systems applications and enrich the variety of perspectives from which this subject is studied." --Cipriano Forza, Professor of Operations Management and General Management at Padova University, Italy "Perfectly on the road that enhances the fit between customer and supplier!
