Special Issue on Automation in Green Manufacturing


There has been growing interest in green manufacturing worldwide, which 
has attracted substantial efforts from researchers in both academic and 
engineering communities.Green manufacturing deserves /efficient 
production of//green technology products, and energy efficient and 
environmentally friendly manufacturing process and system/. To achieve 
this, automation is an essential component. In recent years, significant 
advancements in technology, the fast growing economy and rapidly 
changing market have generated numerous opportunities for innovation. At 
the same time, many new challenges have emerged in order to apply and 
implement these innovations. Such opportunities and challenges have 
substantially expanded the scope of automation. The goal of automation 
is to provide efficient scientific and engineering solutions for green 
manufacturing. The central theme of this Special Issue is */emerging 
opportunities and future directions in automation forgreen 
manufacturing, /*where information technology based modeling, analysis, 
control and optimization are the focus areas.**The purpose is to show 
the state-of-the-art research and applications in the general area of 
automation in green manufacturing, by bringing together researchers and 
practitioners from both academia and industry, to address the 
significant advancement, expose the unsolved challenges, present the 
needs for integration with new technologies, and provide visions for 
future research and development. This special issue aims to publish 
original, significant and visionary automation papers describing 
scientific methods and technologies with both solid theoretical 
development and practical importance. Submissions of scientific results 
from experts in academia and industry worldwide are strongly encouraged.
