Much research has been devoted to improving manufactured product quality and manufacturing process efficiency. With recent advances in computer and network technologies, sensors, control systems and manufacturing machines, manufacturing research has progressed to a new level. In addition, new research areas in manufacturing are emerging to address problems encountered in the evolving manufacturing environment. IJMR has been established to report state-of-the-art and new developments in modern manufacturing research, and publishes innovative methodologies and solutions to problems challenging today's manufacturing operations. The journal is sponsored by the Swedish Production Academy.


 Topics covered include

  • Process modelling and simulation
  • Computing and numerical analysis
  • Process design and optimisation
  • Production planning and scheduling
  • Sensors and control technologies
  • Measurement data processing
  • Robotics and automation
  • Web-based technologies
  • Artificial intelligence in manufacturing
  • Condition based maintenance

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJMR are to establish active channels of communication between academic researchers and manufacturing practitioners, and to promote innovative research on improving manufacturing flexibility, efficiency and adaptability in decentralised dynamic environments. The international dimension is emphasised in order to solve problems associated with manufacturing outsourcing and globalisation. Knowledge sharing and technology transfer can also be accelerated through this journal. The primary focus of IJMR is on the state of the art of manufacturing research, targeting today’s challenges and tomorrow’s needs.


IJMR provides a forum to help academic researchers, manufacturing practitioners, and university students, working in the field of manufacturing research, to disseminate information and to share knowledge for manufacturing advancement.


IJMR publishes original research papers, literature review reports, case studies of current interest, and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in manufacturing research will also be published occasionally.
