Special Issue "Modeling, Simulation and Control of Flexible Manufacturing Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 August 2023) | Viewed by 19638
The most innovative way to modernize flexible manufacturing systems is to introduce advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and cognitive monitoring/control into manufacturing processes. According to paradigm 4.0, these emerging digital technologies have the potential to transform flexible manufacturing systems to a new, more efficient level. These transformed manufacturing systems must pre-process an increased amount of process data in real-time and frequently incorporate optimization abilities to improve the efficiency of sub-processes. The increasing complexity of flexible manufacturing systems causes significant difficulties in their optimization, modeling, and monitoring. Furthermore, the classical process optimization, modeling and monitoring approaches cannot respond to real-time data. Therefore, it is practically necessary to develop new advanced approaches for process optimization, modeling, and monitoring to support engineers’ decisions for process corrections.
This Special Issue of Processes will cover recent advances in the modeling, optimization, monitoring, and control of different sub-processes in flexible manufacturing with a particular interest in machining.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
