Special Issue Information
The proposed applications of digital twins have exploded in the last half decade. While applicable to all aspects human activities, digital twins are especially useful for products throughout their entire lifecycle, especially in manufacturing. The ability to effectively and efficiently manufacture products is critical to the products’ success. By trading information for wasting physical resources, digital twins can enable manufacturing to be as lean as possible.
The use of digital twins in manufacturing is important in two aspects. First, digital twins can be used in the manufacturing process itself, from creating the manufacturing process to monitoring and controlling the entire manufacturing process from raw material to final assembly and shipment. Digital twins can be used at all levels of production, from individual equipment to work cells to assembly lines to the entire manufacturing facility. Second, capturing information about how individual products have been manufactured is critical for creating the digital twin instance (DTI), which will then be connected to that product for the rest of the product’s life.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
