In recent years, the focus on smart manufacturing systems has been pushing companies toward a new variety of highly specific technical solutions. These solutions are characterized by an integrated approach to manufacturing termed “digital manufacturing”. In fact, digital manufacturing systems often incorporate optimization capabilities to reduce time and cost and improve the efficiency of most processes. The digital revolution is now our “present” and not the future. There are many different tooling processes that digital manufacturing utilizes, such as artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, additive technology, and human–machine interaction. These tools are unleashing innovations that will change the nature of manufacturing itself.
Industry and academic leaders agree that digital-manufacturing technologies will transform every link in the manufacturing value chain, from research and development, supply chain, and factory operations to marketing, sales, and service.
Furthermore, recently, some studies have identified several interlinks between smart manufacturing and sustainability. Emerging academic research is concerned with how the principles, practices, and enabling technologies of industry 4.0 might unlock the potentials of circular economy (CE) and sustainable manufacturing. Digitalization and the use of big data are seen as key enablers for increased sustainability and for the implementation of a circular economy.
Promoting research for innovation, sustainable solutions, and sustainable lifestyles in a new digitalized society and business sector, as well as facilitating them by financial measures and social measures, are the key tasks of this Special Issue.
This Special Issue is will collect a high-quality selection of contemporary research articles on the topic of “Smart Manufacturing Systems for Industry 5.0: Challenges and Opportunities”.
We are particularly interested in publishing articles not only from a traditional point of view but also from new emerging trends in order to meet practitioners’ needs and make theoretical contributions. This call is also aimed at collecting contributions that explore policies and practices adopted in different countries/regions in the field of smart manufacturing, as well as on the results obtained.Prof. Dr. Antonella Petrillo

Title: Sentiment classification of e-commerce product quality reviews by deep learning algorithm of Bert-BiGRU with AP-LDA
Authors: Yi Liu, Feng Mao*, Jiahuan Lu
Affiliation: Management School, Hangzhou Dianzi University, Hangzhou, China
Abstract: In order to enhance the accuracy of sentiment classification for e-commerce product quality reviews, this paper propose the deep learning algorithm of Bert-BiGRU with AP-LDA which uses the AP-LDA model to extract text features of e-commerce product quality reviews, and then uses the Bert-BiGRU with full connection layer to classify the sentiment tendency. Compared the RNN, GRU,LSTM and other algorithms, the experiments of different data sets show that the Bert-BiGRU algorithm with AP-LDA can analyze and achieve the better sentiment classification accuracy, which has increased by 3% ~ 7% on the effectiveness of the e-commerce product quality reviews.
