Call for Papers: Special Issue on Additive Manufacturing for IISE Transactions

CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue on Additive Manufacturing
IISE Transactions Focus Issue on Design and Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM), or known as three-dimensional (3D) printing, refers to a new class of technologies associated with the direct fabrication of physical products from Computer-Aided Design (CAD) models by a layered manufacturing process. It is widely recognized as a disruptive technology, having the potential to fundamentally change the nature of future manufacturing. The changes involve each stage of the product life-cycle: design, modeling and simulation, manufacturing, quality control, metrology, and logistics, etc. This special issue intends to collect cutting-edge research works illustrating the impact of AM on design and manufacturing. Topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to the following:

  •        Design for AM
  •        Process planning for additive manufacturing
  •        New AM processes and new material processing using AM techniques
  •        Functionally graded and multimaterial AM
  •        Design, analysis and optimization of AM parts
  •        Modeling and simulation of AM processes
  •        In-situ and in-line sensing, monitoring, and control of AM processes
  •        Statistical process control and capability analysis for AM processes
  •        Inspection, validation, verification and qualification of AM parts
  •        Data analytics and learning for AM, including cyber-enabled AM
  •        Shape analysis for AM 
  •      Logistics and supply chain for AM
  •      Uncertainty quantification for AM
  •       AM applications in biomedical, energy, and transportation fields
