Aims and scope

The journal aims to be the journal of choice for meaningful manufacturing related research. Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management (JMTM) gives a broad international coverage of subjects relating to the management of manufacturing technology. Emphasis is placed on the publication of articles which seek to link advances in theory with practical application with the objective of identifying improved practices for manufacturing.

JMTM is looking for articles that are rooted in reality, this means having an empirical base for example through surveys, case studies and action research. All submissions should include a clear analysis of the state of the field (literature review) and clearly communicate how the study makes a significant original contribution to the field by comparing and contrasting the study's results with the state of the field. Studies should be directly relevant to the management of manufacturing technology and contain elements which have general application.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Additive, agile, flexible, green, global, lean, world-class manufacturing
  • Financial issues in manufacturing
  • Human factors in manufacturing
  • Improvement of manufacturing such as through assembly line balancing or automation
  • Innovation in manufacturing or having an impact on manufacturing
  • Manufacturing performance and productivity
  • Manufacturing in different contexts such as developing countries
  • Operations and manufacturing strategy and competitiveness 
  • Product and process design related to manufacturing
  • Purchasing related to manufacturing
  • Quality management related to manufacturing
  • Servitization related to manufacturing aspects
  • Supply chain management related to manufacturing aspects
