Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the optimization of complex processes or systems, well related to business-oriented disciplines such as Operations Management. Industrial engineers use computer simulation (especially discrete event simulation), along with extensive mathematical tools and modeling and computational methods for system analysis, evaluation, and optimization. Industrial simulation can help to identify inefficiencies and examine how these may be addressed. With the integration of artificial intelligence, agents and other modeling techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision support tool in industry. The MSIE special session focuses on simulation applications for the factory of the future (e.g. transformable factories, networked factories, learning factories, digital factories) in application areas such as Automotive Industries, Aerospace, CAD/CAM/CAE, Defense Electronics, Simulation in Industrial Design, Industrial and Process Simulation, Supply Chain, Power Plants, etc.
The MSIE special session invites quality papers describing original work including research ideas, case-studies and new findings on methodological and technological aspects related to Manufacturing Simulation and Industrial Engineering, in particular papers describing methods, techniques, recent advances, applications and tools.
All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the proceedings book, under an ISBN reference and on CD-ROM support.
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).
