Aims and scope
Journal of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is an international refereed journal published quarterly online open access by KMF. The journal to be of interest and use to all those concerned with research in various fields of, or closely related to, mechanical and industrial engineering disciplines. It aims to publish full research papers, review papers and short communications with focus on the fundamental and applied science, as well as innovative technologies advancing the knowledge in handling and manufacturing products on component, system and society level. The coverage of the journal includes all new theoretical and experimental findings in the fields of mechanical and industrial engineering or any closely related fields. The journal also encourages the submission of critical review articles covering advances in recent research of such fields as well as technical notes. The core interest of the journal is publishing articles that are either original physics-based investigations of processes and/or contributing technological novel ideas for increasing the efficiency and quality of processes by reducing simultaneously the environmental and social impact. A special field of interest of the journal are new methods of educating modern industrial and manufacturing engineers. Typical areas of interest to the journal include:
Industrial engineering: Plant design, assembly, sustainable manufacturing, supply chain, human factors and (neuro-)ergonomics, life-cycle engineering, robotics and computer-integrated manufacturing systems
Manufacturing: Additive manufacturing, casting, welding, polymer molding, forming and joining by forming, machining, electro-discharge manufacturing, precision engineering, smart manufacturing, virtual manufacturing, machine tools technology, laser technology, artificial intelligence in manufacturing, surfaces and their metrology
Nano- and micro-technologies: Processing nanostructured material, fabrication of micro-systems and nanodevices
Design: Tool design, press design, component design (including manufacturing effects), products performance as a function of manufacturing
Modelling of materials processing: New analytical models, applying existing models to new processes, material characterisation, efficient numerical models, multi-scale models, modelling process chains
Educational contributions: New in-situ experiments, telemetric experiments, augmented reality applications, complex knowledge description, misconceptions, curriculum development in industrial and manufacturing engineering, defining technical terms
Workpiece and tool materials covered in the processes reach from metals, polymers, ceramics to biomaterials.
KMF Publication Ethics Statement
