Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and Big Data analytics are the keystones of advanced manufacturing. The value of these tools encompasses nearly all aspects of advanced manufacturing, including market research, product life cycle management, product design, process optimization and control, and quality assurance. The recent advancements within robotics, the cyber physical system (CPS), AR/VR, digital twins, and human–robot interaction, incorporating tools of AI, machine learning, and data analytics, illuminates advanced manufacturing and its importance. This Special Issue seeks to publish fundamental and applied research in the following broad areas to enhance advanced manufacturing systems, processes, or products in all manufacturing domains, not limited to subtractive, formative, additive, hybrid, continuous, and robot-assisted manufacturing processes.

  • Predictive modeling and design
  • Data-driven process monitoring, control, and optimization
  • Physics-informed machine learning (Scientific machine learning/explicit AI)
  • Digital twins (process or product digital twins) and applications
  • Sensor data fusion
  • Novel sensing and monitoring systems
  • Robot-assisted manufacturing processes and computational methods
  • Industrial IoTs and applications
  • Human–robot/machine interaction/collaboration
  • AR/VR and other immersive techniques in advanced manufacturing
  • Hybrid manufacturing (combination of additive and subtractive manufacturing)

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
