We are writing to invite contributions to a Special Issue of the International Journal of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (IJCIM) on "Cyber-Physical Product Creation for Industry 4.0".
Industry 4.0 has become a synonym for a vision of future product creation and production engineering environments in which networks of horizontally and vertically integrated smart design and manufacture systems will be the norm. With the Industrial Internet of Things and its Cyber-physical Systems as a backbone, game-changing new ways of product design and manufacture in a hyper-connected globalized world are emerging. In addition, a new and rapidly growing industrial service-sector focusing on Product-Service-Systems has begun to form. Some of the challenges in realizing the overall vison of Industry 4.0 concern the integration, management, control and communication of cyber-physical production engineering systems, the integration of state-of-the-art technology with legacy systems, data security and broader cyber-security aspects, as well as national and international public policy issues. Lastly, given the profound impact of this so-called 4th Industrial Revolution on society as a whole, the changing landscape of tomorrow’s job market and hence the training and education of the next generation workforce need to be addressed as well.
The objective of this special issue is to seek high quality and unpublished papers that advance research and thus the state-of-the-art in all facets of Cyber-physical Product Creation in the broader context of Industry 4.0. Contributions may include theoretical foundations, open technical challenges, innovative applications and implementations in industry, business case studies, experimental studies, associated design-and manufacture education initiatives, as well as outstanding review papers. For a list of suggested topics and further details please refer to the attached call for papers document.
