More on this journal...
The objective of IJRapidM is to provide a comprehensive collection of the latest research and technical work in the area of rapid tooling and manufacturing especially in an integrated engineering design environment The main goal is to serve as a resource for both researcher and practitioners.Readership
Individuals with interest in the following are the primary audiences:
- Rapid response manufacturing
- Development life cycle
- Life cycle cost issues
- Mechanical design and materials
- Rapid manufacturing
- Reconfigurable manufacturing
IJRapidM will attempt to bring these topics under the same roof. It is the journal’s goal to gather peer-reviewed research papers that are of interest to this. The contributions made to IJRapidM are expected to be from academic and research institutions, industries and government agencies.
IJRapidM will publish:
- Original full length articles reporting experimental and theoretical research
- Original applications reported with scholarly values
- General survey and critical reviews
- Book reviews
- Occasional Special Issues devoted to important topics in engineering design and rapid manufacturing
