Technical Focus:
Smart manufacturing, also known as Industry 4.0, refers to the next-generation manufacturing paradigm that aims to make use of smart sensors, cloud computing infrastructures, artificial intelligence or machine learning, advanced robotics to improve manufacturing productivity and cost efficiency. As one of the key enablers for smart manufacturing, the Internet of Things (IoT) enables integration of physical objects with digital systems by offering connectivity of manufacturing devices and systems through sensors or augmented reality. The objective of this special issue is to collect cutting-edge research works focused on IoT-enabled smart manufacturing. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
  • Emerging sensing technologies for smart manufacturing and supply chain management
  • Sensor-enabled manufacturing process monitoring and control
  • Manufacturing intelligence and manufacturing informatics
  • Advanced diagnostics, prognostics and asset health management
  • Embedded systems for smart manufacturing
  • Augmented reality and wearable computing for greater equipment or process awareness
  • Machine-to-machine communication standards for smart manufacturing
  • Human machine interactions for smart manufacturing
  • Smart manufacturing test beds
  • Cybersecurity for smart manufacturing systems
  • Smart inspection systems
  • Cloud-based applications for smart manufacturing
  • IoT interoperability for smart manufacturing
Important Dates:
  • Manuscript submission deadline: December 1st, 2017
  • Notification of disposition of the manuscript: March 1st, 2018
  • Final revisions due: June 1st, 2018
