Toward the New Era of Sustainable Design, Manufacturing and Management
The corona pandemic has transformed our lives. While we have explored “a new way of life”, we do need to solve new social challenges, such as the collapse of medical care due to the increase in infection of the new corona virus, both at a national level and on a global scale. Furthermore, new lifestyles will change people's daily behavior, and many industries, including not only the manufacturing but also the food service industry and travel industry, will need to change the way of conventional value provisions. These imminent environments have accelerated digital transformation (DX), and we are urged to make further efforts across industries to sustain our lives and to create new social values for the next generation.
For this Special Topic titled “Toward the New Era of Sustainable Design, Manufacturing and Management”, we widely invite the submission of articles that foster discussion on the design and development of products, product–service systems, and manufacturing systems that will contribute to a sustainable society, management strategies for sustainable development, and the design and innovation of resilient socio-technical systems. This topic also includes social sustainability and stabilization using smart technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and cyber-physical systems (CPSs).
Articles selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer-review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
