Deadline Extended - Call for Papers: Special Issue on Additive Manufacturing for IISE Transactions

Special Issue on Additive Manufacturing
IISE Transactions Focus Issue on Design and Manufacturing

Deadline Extended 

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
