Advanced Manufacturing Technology Special Issue

Special issue call for papers from Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management

Aims and Scope:

The aim of this special issue is to bring together the leading researchers of advanced manufacturing technology problems who use the recently developed advanced manufacturing techniques to present their original research studies of very high quality. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that seek to address the advanced manufacturing tasks either for pure/applied research or industrial applications. We are particularly interested in articles that explore advances in advanced manufacturing as well as other novel and innovative experimental approaches. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

1:   Engineering design in a global manufacturing context
2:   Concurrent, collaborative, and distributed engineering design and manufacture
3:   Design tools, methods and techniques
4:   Product life-cycle modeling and management
5:   Computer-aided design and manufacturing 
6:   Quality, robust design, and variation management
7:   Global Manufacturing and Systems
8:   Product modeling and visualization techniques and advancement
9:   Modeling and simulation of workflow in design and manufacturing processes
10: Virtual design and manufacturing technology
11:  Advanced manufacturing processes
12: Enterprise resources planning
13: Digital factory/enterprise
14: Robotics and vision applications in robotics
15: Micro electrical mechanical systems
16: Cost control in product design
17: Activity based cost management
18: Precise detection technology
