Aims & Scope of the Journal
Concurrent Engineering: Research and Applications (CERA) is a leading, peer reviewed journal publishing the newest and most exciting research arising from parallelism of product life cycle functions, covering:
New developments in computer-aided concurrent engineering (CE) presented by leading CE specialists from around the world
Advances in knowledge-based CE theory, methodologies and practical applications
New information for integrated CE development and optimization of CAD/CAM/CAE/CIM systems.
CERA provides design, engineering and manufacturing professionals with quality articles on all aspects of CE. Computer-aided concurrent engineering enables faster to-market product development (e.g. Japanese fast-to-market concepts), reduced design and manufacturing costs, competitively superior products, longer product service life, and improved return on product investment. CE is a seamless, systematic integration of computer-aided product design, engineering and manufacturing, as well as post-manufacturing product life-cycle management.
Devoted to the international exchange of scientific information in this critical area, CERA is a multidisciplinary research and applications-oriented journal which fosters the exchange and integration of concepts and theories from diverse areas, as well as the cross-fertilization of enabling CE technologies.
The journal deals with all basic tracks that enable CE, including aspects of Information Modeling, Teaming & Sharing, Networking & Distribution, Planning and Scheduling, Reasoning & Negotiation, Collaborative Decision Making, and Organization and Management of CE.
Topics Covered Include:
· CE system design and implementation modelling
· information management
· design automation
· knowledge acquisition
· performance evaluation
· conflict resolution
· case histories of practical applications.
