Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

China has been the largest manufacturing nation in the world, but not the strongest nation. Currently, China faces internal pressures such as economic downturn, insufficient scientific and technological innovation, low energy efficiency, serious environmental pollution, rising labor costs, and others. At the same time, the strategy of re-industrializing traditional manufacturing power, as well as external competition squeeze such as much lower costs of various production factors of the emerging manufacturing nations, also greatly affects Chinese manufacturing. Facing the time of opportunity of the Internet+ intelligent manufacturing, this Special Issue will include research papers that comprehensively analyze

  • The paths and countermeasures of the strategic upgrade from China-made to China innovation, and

  • The tactics and strategies for Chinese manufacturing sector to meet international challenges,

in the following four dimensions: Economy, science and technology, energy, and environment, by employing statistics, optimization, strategic analysis, and other methods. More specifically, this Special Issue will include papers that

  • Comprehensively evaluate the current state of China’s manufacturing industry, forecast the industry’s overall development trend, analyze the connotation of “new manufacturing industry”, develop the system of evaluation criteria, and explore the deep-rooted problems existing in the development of China’s manufacturing industry; or

  • Carefully analyze the economic, scientific/technological, energy, environmental, political, and other critical factors that affect China’s manufacturing industry, and pinpoint out the macroeconomic factors that shake the future development of this industry; or

  • Investigate comparatively the development trajectories of the manufacturing powers, such as the United States, Germany, Japan, etc., analyze the advantages and disadvantages of emerging manufacturing countries, such as India and South Korea, in order to establish cooperative paths by learning from the international experiences and drawing lessons from the past developments; or

  • Study the effect of such strategies as informatization, intelligentization, Internet+ , etc., on the transition from China-made to China-innovation.

All papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
