Overview of special issue

The aim of the special issue is to present the latest advances and developments of computational intelligence applications, new methods/techniques, systems and tools dedicated to technological advancement applications for smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0. Defining the term “Industry 4.0” or “smart factory can be summarized into four major components like Cyber-physical systems, IoT, On-demand availability of computer system resources and Cognitive computing. Today, a number of trends such as the internet of things (IoT), digital manufacturing, computational methodologies and cybernetics are considered key elements of the definition and implementation of Industry 4.0. Technological advancements in the ability to collect, transfer and analyze vast amounts of data very rapidly are at the core of this trend. Closely related, smart manufacturing is a concept that aims at developing smart intelligent systems that integrate these new technologies to rapidly adapt and respond to changes in the markets’ demands for high-quality products/applications. In practice, smart factories lie at the core of both, Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing.
