Industry 4.0 is the Fourth Industrial Revolution and can be used as a framework to address all aspects of product production with minimize production costs, materials' waste, labor. The emerging paradigm of Industry 4.0 poses new systems design production problems at smart manufacturing systems, robust and flexible automation, distributed and reconfigurable production systems, logistics, and supply chain integration. The industrial processes from maintaining machines to managing supply chains, can be optimized and transformed smarter by capturing and analysing data more intelligently.


With evolution of Industry 4.0, how should we operate our production lines and factories, how should we manage and optimize inventory, transportation networks, how should we manage our supply chains?


This special issue is opening for leading researchers, educators, software developers, and practitioners to discuss current issues, share ideas and experiences on the latest development in the field of computer systems science and their applications in both theoretical and practical hardware and software problems in supply chain management and optimization. The main focus of this special session will also be to address the challenges and opportunities related to Industrial IOT, Smart manufacturing, Intelligent robotics, Big data analytics and Machine learning on on Supply Chain Management and Optimization.

  • Scheduling Optimization Modelling: A Case Study of a Woven Label Manufacturing Company
  • Abstract Production scheduling involves all activities of building production schedules, including coordinating and assigning activities to each person, group of people, or machine and arranging work orders in each workplace. Production scheduling must solve all problems such as minimizing customer wait time, storage costs, and production time; and effectively using the enterprise’s human resources. This paper studies the application of flexible job shop modelling on scheduling a woven labelling process. The labelling process includes several steps which are handled in different work-stations. Each workstation is also comprised of several identical parallel machines. In this study, job splitting is allowed so that… More
