Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cyber-physical systems are the foundation of the Industry 4.0 concept. With more recent advances and flexibility requirements for these systems; the respective design and implementation sometimes require innovative approaches and techniques due to the constant evolution of the demands and needs of customers. This Special Issue considers all steps in the developmental process; from theoretical study and the development of innovative solutions to the implementation and maintenance of such systems during their life cycle. Aspects such as sustainability; energy saving and expected performance must be considered as main issues on the mentioned steps above.

The scope of this Special Issue is closely associated with that of the ISPEM’2023 conference. This conference and Special Issue aim to present the current innovations and engineering achievements of scientists and industrial practitioners in the thematic areas described above.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to; the following:

  • Production Systems Management and Maintenance;
  • Industry 4.0 and Industry 5.0;
  • Modelling; Simulation and Design;
  • Production Planning and Scheduling;
  • Maintenance Planning and Scheduling;
  • Intelligent Methods in Production and Maintenance;
  • Manufacturing Technology and System Engineering;
  • Supply Chain Management;
  • Reliability and Risk Assessment
  • Control and Supervision;
  • Robotics;
  • Automation Measuring Systems and Sensors;
  • Cyber-Physical Systems;
  • Cloud and Distributed Manufacturing;
  • Human Aspects in Industry;
  • Advanced Aerospace Material and Composites;
  • Smart Maintenance;
  • Machining/Forming of Advanced Materials.

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. 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 2000 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.
