The Industrie 4.0 principles rely on digital thread and real-time data communication to manage and monitor production systems and the integration of several technologies to improve manufacturing process efficiency. Based on advanced information technology and the reuse of capitalized knowledge, it will be possible to enable the reengineering of global value chains, to develop disrupting business and industrial models, to increase the agility of production engineering and manufacturing operations.
In such a context, many opportunities for manufacturing process engineering and management exist, particularly for the improvement of production operations where benefit of the digital transformation is emerging quickly. The Special Issue of JMMP welcomes innovative contributions dealing with the following:
- Industrie 4.0
- Factories of the future
- Smart manufacturing
- Cyber-physical production systems
- Industrial Internet of Things
- Digital transformation
- Virtual engineering and prototyping
- Intelligent production management
- Manufacturing data analytics
