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.
