IJPSE addresses new process systems engineering methods, trends and technologies and applications in plant, process and product lifecycles, including engineering design and operational activities and their interaction. Coverage includes process engineering methods and computational models/simulation link design, operation, maintenance, recycling and other lifecycle activities in different disciplines, including nuclear, energy, power, chemical, pharmaceutical, discrete manufacturing and other production processes; applications in marine, military, transportation, aerospace, steel, mining, health/social systems; state-of-the-art methods, practices and technologies in chemical/mechanical/electrical/information/systems engineering; and energy/environmental sciences.


 Topics covered include

  • Process/product synthesis, analysis, design
  • Dynamic analysis/control using modelling/simulation
  • Design methods for production process equipment
  • Novel numerical methods, computation practices
  • Process operations, risk management
  • Safety/maintenance/reliability engineering
  • Quality management, planning and scheduling
  • Supply/production/demand chain management
  • Integrated manufacturing processes/systems
  • Intelligent control, design/operation support systems
  • Biomass production processes
  • Nano-production processes
  • Sustainability/environmental issues
  • Integrated control/management of industrial enterprises
  • Lifecycle assessment/costing

More on this journal...

IJPSE is primarily intended as a journal of record for new developments in the application of process and product lifecycle, computing and systems technology to production processes (chemical, pharmaceutical, discrete manufacturing, and other types of production processes).


The area of process systems engineering is a growing field that supports the process and product lifecycle. Researchers from the fields of process design, operation and control will be interested in papers from IJPSE. Industrial enterprises and engineering consulting companies will also find much of value.


Papers published cover different aspects of the application of computing to one or more of the subject areas, including new applications of established methods, comparisons of alternative methodologies, descriptions of state-of-the-art industrial applications and significant computing developments targeted at training/education. Reports of software implementations must feature novel uses of state-of-the-art computing technologies.

IJPSE includes full-length articles, survey papers, journal reviews, short notes and letters to the Editor.
