Special Issue Information

A great deal of the research work performed in design and manufacturing deals with the use and advancement of new technologies. Novel methodologies and intelligent tools help design and manufacturing engineers to reduce the time to market and increase the quality of the products and services offered.

Both design and manufacturing can be seen from a variety of views, and it is expected that this multidisciplinary Special Issue will bring together researchers from a variety of areas. This will result in a collection of different perspectives regarding the latest progress in technologies and advancements that lie at the core of an engineer’s work. This blending of expertise and outcomes will, in turn, encourage further cooperation.

This Special Issue provides an opportunity for researchers to present recent advances and technologies in the aforementioned fields as well as outline the future trends for design and manufacturing technologies.

Suitable topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Additive manufacturing and applications
  • CAD/CAM/CAE systems and technologies
  • Reverse engineering and prototyping
  • Linear and non-linear finite element simulations
  • Robotics in manufacturing
  • CMM applications and cloud manufacturing
  • Precision machining, micromachining, and machinability
  • Design and manufacturing optimization applications
  • Advances in design and manufacturing simulations
  • Computational design and Industry 4.0
  • Soft computing in design and manufacturing applications
  • Conventional and non-conventional manufacturing processes
