Optimization in Industrial Systems

Description

Industrial systems are concerned with the organization and effective utilization of the total resources of modern manufacturing and process industries so as to minimize wastes of time, money, materials, energy, and other resources. It is thus clear that optimization in industrial systems is crucial for the competitiveness of any industry in a highly competitive economic environment. Consequently, how to utilize advanced modelling and optimization technologies and develop new modelling and optimizations methods to design and manage these systems have attracted the interest of many mathematicians, engineers, and practitioners. The main objective of this special issue is to facilitate the dissemination of the latest progress in this area. We invite authors to submit original research and review papers on novel optimization theory and methodologies and their applications in industrial practice. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Performance evaluation and optimization
  • Supply chain management and logistics
  • Optimal process control
  • Project management, scheduling, and control
  • Mathematical modelling and optimization relevant to industrial systems

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/mpe/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/mpe/insy/ according to the following timetable:
