Changeable, Agile, Reconfigurable and Virtual Production

The objective of the CARV2018 conference is to share up-to-date issues and knowledge of production management among leading experts from academia and industry. The research papers, case studies, and in-depth report on production systems,  will provide guidelines, and insights to pave the way for future manufacturing systems.

The main sub-topics are as follows:

Manufacturing systems

  • Manufacturing systems design, planning, operation and control
  • Changeability, flexibility and re-configurability
  • Adaptability, responsiveness and agility
  • Reliability, availability and dependability
  • Global manufacturing capacity and capabilities
  • De- and Re-Manufacturing

Globalization and sustainability

  • Sustainability for manufacturing systems and products
  • Global production systems and co-operation within global networks
