Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The growth of advanced technologies and their extensive applications in industry are changing the current approach to manufacturing.

The introduction of modern I5.0 technologies and concepts in factory environments could lead to the smart transformation of production and manufacturing systems, while also favoring a circular economy approach, which is mainly expressed in remanufacturing. Technologies such as Digital Twin (DT), Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing could improve shop floor performance and facilitate the development of new, profitable businesses. The integration of these technologies contributes to digital transformation and reveals new perspectives for companies, which have led to the achievement human-oriented factory environments and the growth of overall equipment effectiveness in manufacturing systems.

This Special Issue focuses on the scientific and industrial aspects of the integration of new technologies in manufacturing, and their effects on industrial system performance. We welcome original research exploring recent developments in the digital transformation of factories; case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of these transformations; and review articles.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The integration of technology for smart manufacturing/remanufacturing system realization;
  • Digital Twins for enhancing manufacturing/remanufacturing systems;
  • Human–robot cooperation in manufacturing/remanufacturing contexts;
  • Cloud Manufacturing;
  • Cloud Remanufacturing;
  • Artificial Intelligence for Prognostics;
  • Artificial Intelligence for improving production processes;
  • The Internet of Things in manufacturing/remanufacturing contexts;
  • Additive manufacturing;
  • Virtual reality, cross reality or mixed reality in manufacturing/remanufacturing contexts;
  • The use of technologies for improving manufacturing/remanufacturing system performance;
  • New performance measurement methods;
  • Decision support systems for industrial system management and improvement;
  • Key performance indicators for the sustainable control and management of industrial systems;
  • The use of technologies for reverse logistics in remanufacturing;
  • Industrial symbiosis for sustainable manufacturing.

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. Machines 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 2400 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.
