With the advent of disruptive digital technologies, companies are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities. Advanced manufacturing systems are of paramount importance in making key enabling technologies and new products more competitive, affordable and accessible as well as fostering their economic and social impact. This Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences, devoted to the broad field of “Smart Sustainable Manufacturing Systems”, aims to explore recent research into the concepts, methods, tools, and applications for smart sustainable manufacturing in order to advance and promote the development of modern and intelligent manufacturing systems.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Design of sustainable production systems and factories
Industrial big data analytics and cyber physical systems for engineering asset management
Intelligent maintenance approaches and technologies for increased operating life of production systems
Zero-defect manufacturing strategies, tools and methods towards on-line production management
Connected smart factories
Adaptation of work environments with changing levels of automation in evolving production systems
Flexible and customised manufacturing
Resource and energy efficient manufacturing
Manufacturing waste management, recycling and reuse
Eco-design in smart factories of industry 4.0
