Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to new technologies and external disruptions, manufacturing systems and service operations are constantly facing new challenges. This has led to an ongoing need for innovative methods to provide real-world decision support. The objective of this Special Issue is to present a selection of these novel approaches for recent planning challenges in production and operations management. A special focus is on the mathematical modelling of the underlying optimization problems and the development of state-of-the-art algorithms. We invite original application-oriented studies as well as theoretical contributions that address a wide variety of issues in the management, modelling, planning, and optimization of production systems and service industries.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following keywords:

  • Metaheuristics for production planning
  • Decision support (systems) for production and operations management
  • Multi-criteria optimization approaches in manufacturing
  • Game theoretical approaches in production management
  • Data-driven optimization in operations management
  • Simulation studies
  • Exact methods
  • Integrated production planning models
  • Lot-sizing and scheduling applications
  • Sustainable manufacturing and energy-aware scheduling
  • Design of manufacturing facilities and layout planning
  • Operations management in transportation and service industry
  • Case studies

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
