Special Issue on: "Measurement and Instrumentation in Advanced Manufacturing"

Guest Editors: Professor Chenggen Quan and Professor Xiaoping Li, National University of Singapore, Singapore

Measurement and instrumentation are essential for verifying product conformance to design specifications. There is an increasing demand for measurement and instrumentation to support the globalised manufacturing industry. The research in this area targeting various manufacturing issues has expanded and the development of modern instrumentation has ignited innovation in advanced manufacturing technology.

The goal of this special issue is to publish new ideas and the most recent developments in measurement and instrumentation for advanced manufacturing. Selected papers from the International Conference on Product Design and Manufacturing Systems, 2007 (PDMS2007) will be published. One of the focuses of the conference is to provide the opportunity for scholars from all over the world to discuss their recent research advances in the area of measurement and instrumentation in advanced manufacturing.

However, the special issue is not limited to papers selected from the conference. It will accept submitted general papers on the topic, through the same general peer review processes.

Subject Coverage
The scope of the issue covers, but is not limited to:
  • Modern and intelligent instrumentation design
  • Measurement methods and signal analysis
  • Integrated and internet based measurement technologies
  • Software technologies for automated measurement
  • In-Process inspection and instruments
  • Numerical methods and evaluation in advanced manufacturing
