Call For Papers
The aim of Computers in Industry is to publish original, high-quality, application-oriented research papers that:

• Show new trends in and options for the use of Information and Communication Technology in industry;
• Link or integrate different technology fields in the broad area of computer applications for industry;
• Link or integrate different application areas of ICT in industry.

General topics covered include the following areas:

• The unique application of ICT in business processes such as design, engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, physical distribution, production management and supply chain management. This is the main thrust of the journal. It includes research in integration of business process support, such as in enterprise modelling, ERP, EDM.
• The industrial use of ICT in knowledge intensive fields such as quality control, logistics, engineering data management, and product documentation will certainly be considered.
• Demonstration of enabling capabilities of new or existing technologies such as hard real time systems, knowledge engineering, applied fuzzy logic, collaborative work systems, and intelligence agents are also welcomed.
• Papers solely focusing on ICT or manufacturing processes may be considered out of scope.

A continuous quality policy, based on strict peer reviewing shall ensure that published articles are:

- Technologically outstanding and front-end
- Application-oriented with a generalised message
- Representative for research at an international level

Special Issue on Technology enablers for the implementation of Industry 4.0 to traditional manufacturing sectors
Submission Date: 2020-03-31

Aims and Scope The traditional manufacturing sectors (footwear, textiles and clothing, furniture and toys, among others) are based on small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with limited capacity on investing in modern production technologies. Although these sectors rely heavily on product customization and short manufacturing cycles, they are still not able to take full advantage of the fourth industrial revolution. Industry 4.0, surfaced to address the current challenges of shorter product life-cycles, highly customized products and stiff global competition. The new manufacturing paradigm supports the development of modular factory structures within a computerized Internet of Things (IoT) environment. With Industry 4.0, rigid planning and production processes can be revolutionized. However, the computerization of manufacturing has a high degree of complexity and its implementation tends to be expensive, which goes against the reality of SMEs that power the traditional sectors. For this reason, the purpose of this special issue is to collect research works proposing solutions that facilitate the implementation of Industry 4.0 to the traditional manufacturing sectors. Accepted papers should address the following (indicative) topics and should aim at the implementation of Industry 4.0 to traditional manufacturing sectors. Topics Product customization technologies in traditional manufacturing sectors, including the utilization of 3D printing approaches. Design and implementation of CAD/CAE/CAM algorithms and applications for traditional manufacturing sectors, including Cloud applications and efficient implementation through parallel architectures. Interoperability and distributed manufacturing in traditional manufacturing sectors. Artificial intelligence for design & manufacturing in traditional manufacturing sectors. Robotics systems including collaborative robots, complex robotic cells, interconnection and security issues.
