Smart Manufacturing,Innovative Productand Service Design to Empower Industry 4.0

Aims of the Special Issue:

With the new paradigm of Industry 4.0, the manufacturing and service industries are increasingly adopting smart equipment and intelligent system with multimode sensors and more attention has been drawn to develop Cyber-Physical Systems, the Internet of Things (IoTs), and big data analytics for improving the operational performance. In particular, various solutions and techniques have been developed to extract useful information and derive effective manufacturing intelligence with advanced decision technologies to address new challenges of recent progress in smart manufacturing and operational excellence. Thus, this special issue of the Computers& Industrial Engineering (C&IE)aims to address emergent research issues regarding how to adopt new technologies for smart production, digital manufacturing, and innovative design and service to empower Industry 4.0.
