Intelligent systems, methods and techniques supporting sustainability of manufacturing processes


Intelligent systems, methods and techniques (ISMT) are present more and more often in manufacturing companies. They support manufacturing processes planning, realization, monitoring and reporting as well as they support decision making process. Many advantages that ISMT bring can be identified. In the same time many challenges for companies appear. ISMT influence on various aspects concerning manufacturing areas and company operations. It is interesting to research how intelligent systems, methods and techniques can influence sustainability of manufacturing companies. ISMT can influence economic aspects. To develop and implement new solutions the companies must invest in technologies that will bring financial benefits. New technologies can influence social aspects by creating new work positions or by eliminating old professions. They might also support workers in performing their job or they might require new or improved knowledge and skills. Moreover, new technologies might influence positively environmental aspects what can be noticed by companies and what might additionally influence positively on financial aspects, by decreasing for example costs of energy use.
The Special Session addresses the many issues connected with intelligent systems, methods and techniques that might support sustainability of manufacturing companies, manufacturing lines or even single workstations, or can support sustainable development of the entire supply chain.
The aim of the Special Session is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on design and application of modern technologies that can be applied to support sustainable development with identification of benefits which these technologies can bring in all areas of sustainability: economic, social and sentimental.

Supply chain in the context of Industry 4.0


The fourth industrial revolution (so-called Industry 4.0) is characterized by extensive use of the Internet as well as computerization and robotization of all spheres of the economy. Today’s industry is changing at an unprecedented fast pace. Earlier industrial revolutions, i.e. fundamental changes in production and communication processes, were much slower than those we are observing today. Thus, Industry 4.0 creates many unprecedented opportunities for companies and supply chains. It is also a challenge resulting from the need to use advanced technologies. Technological progress is changing the logic of functioning of the sectors of the economy. Therefore, it affects every aspect of people’s lives. Smart factories are becoming its heart. The effective functioning of intelligent factories is, however, conditional on their proper cooperation with the environment. Nowadays it is accepted that integration with entities involved in creating value throughout the entire flow of goods is the most beneficial, and therefore not only the producers, but also the entire chain or supply network in which they operate should be analysed.

Topics of interest concern but are not limited to:

  • Supply Chain in Industry 4.0
  • Supply Chain 4.0
  • Logistics 4.0
  • Maintenance in Supply Chain
  • Smart Supply Chain
  • Sustainable Supply Chain
  • Flexible Supply Chain
  • Internet of Things in Supply Chain
  • Smart manufacturing and factory

The future of mining

Mining faces huge challenges. On the one hand, they are associated with climate change, limiting the impact on the environment and gaining social acceptance for their activities, and this cannot be achieved without greater transparency and openness. On the other hand, mining must modernize its operations by joining the revolution referred to as industry 4.0. Without innovation, development of new technologies and intelligent operation, it will be difficult to meet the growing demand for raw materials. The decreasing average grade of existing and discovered new deposits forces an increase in productivity and reduction of energy consumption. Mining must ensure full control of its operations and deal with a lack of capital, volatility of commodity prices, rising costs, lack of staff, limited water availability and numerous threats. It must reach places that were previously inaccessible: deeper, to the bottom of the oceans, under the ice, into space.

The session will cover technological advances in the areas of:

  • artificial intelligence. smart mines and mining innovations,
  • automation and simulation,
  • mining machinery diagnostics,
  • supply chain, quality tracking and  blockchain,
  • virtual and digital mines + big data mining,
  • short, long and intergenration optimisation,
  • CSR and social license to mining and sustainability
  • time, materials and energy savings and management + circular economy,
  • mining in oceans and space
  • water mining

Liverpool European capital of culture 2028 is only 2.5 hours from London, 45 min from Manchester and 3.5 hours from Edinburgh.

Founded in 1207, Liverpool is today a cosmopolitan city in the North West of England, with an estimated population of 489,000. In 1889, it became a county borough and its growth as a major port contributed to the Industrial Revolution. Liverpool port handledinternational cargo, freight, and raw materials from around the world including the trans-Atlantic slave trade. In the 19th century, Liverpool was a major transit point for the Irish and English emigrating to North America. Famous trans-ocean liners such as the Cunard and White Star Line, RMS Titanic, the RMS Lusitania, RMS Queen Mary, and RMS Olympic were registered in Liverpool.

Liverpoolis home of arts, music, (the Beatles one of the greatest band in history), football (Liverpool FC, Everton) Musicians having roots and links to Liverpool have recorded 56 No. 1 singles, the only city in the world to hold this record. Outside London, Liverpool is the only city in the UK with high number of art galleries, national museums, and listed buildings. The annual Grand National horse race in Aintree Racecourse attracts people from all over the word. Recently voted as European capital of culture (2028), today Liverpool attracts tourists from around the world for its culture and architecture.
