Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The advent of Industry 4.0 and the emerging paradigm of Industry 5.0 have revolutionized various aspects of industrial engineering and supply chain management. These technologies, characterized by the integration of cyber–physical systems, the Internet of Things, and advanced data analytics, offer unprecedented opportunities for enhancing operational efficiency, sustainability, and resilience in industrial settings. This Special Issue aims to explore the applications of Industry 4.0/5.0 in the context of sustainable industrial engineering and supply chain management.

The primary objective of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to share their latest findings, methodologies, and case studies related to the applications of Industry 4.0/5.0 for sustainable industrial engineering and supply chain management. The Special Issue will encompass various interdisciplinary topics that address both theoretical advancements and practical implications in this field. We invite original research articles, review papers, and case studies that explore the Special Issue on "Applications of Industry 4.0/5.0 for Sustainable Industrial Engineering and Supply Chain Management" aims to cover recent advances in the development and application in industrial engineering and supply chains with the indulgence of Industry 4.0/5.0.

All submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure the quality and relevance of the published articles. Authors should follow the guidelines provided by the journal for formatting and submission. Topics include, but are not limited to, methods and/or application in the following areas:

  • Integration of Industry 4.0/ 5.0 technologies for sustainable manufacturing processes.
  • Intelligent supply chain management using advanced data analytics and AI algorithms.
  • Cyber–physical systems and their role in achieving sustainability goals in industrial settings.
  • Smart factories and their impact on energy efficiency and resource conservation.
  • Blockchain technology for enhancing transparency and traceability in supply chains.
  • Sustainable logistics and transportation enabled by Industry 4.0/ Industry 5.0 technologies.
  • Predictive maintenance and condition monitoring for improving asset utilization and reducing downtime.
  • Circular economy approaches and their integration with Industry 4.0/ Industry 5.0 concepts.
  • Process reengineering for sustainable systems
  • Agile research and development for integration of Industry 40/5.0 for sustainable process industrial engineering and supply chain management.

This Special Issue on "Applications of Industry 4.0/5.0 for Sustainable Process Industrial Engineering and Supply Chain Management" aims to provide valuable insights into the advancements, challenges, and potential of integrating Industry 4.0/5.0 technologies in sustainable industrial settings. We believe that the publication of this Special Issue will contribute to the broader understanding and adoption of these technologies, ultimately leading to more efficient, resilient, and environmentally friendly industrial practices. We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit their high-quality contributions to this Special Issue and be part of this exciting exploration at the intersection of technology and sustainability.
