Journal of Product Design, Quality Engineering & Technology

The Journal of Product Design, Quality Engineering & Production Technology is a tri-annual peer-reviewed journal that presents research papers of scientific and applied industrial interest on product design, quality engineering, relevant technologies and related topics. 

  • This journal publishes papers on the following topics (but its scope is not limited to them): 
  • manufacturing processes (metal forming, metal casting, machining processes, welding and joining, powder metallurgy, arid rapid tooling, polymer processing, composite processing, hybrid processes, and the like),
  • development and composition of production equipment and machine tools ( geometrical precision, dynamic behaviour ),
  • product inspection (procedures, devices and methodologies),
  • dimensional metrology,
  • numerical modelling,
  • development and composition of production equipment and machine tools (geometrical precision, dynamic behaviour),
  • micro or nano manufacturing (devices, integration and modelling)
  • product inspection and dimensional metrology (procedures, devices and methodologies),
  • computer aided systems for manufacturing systems and simulation,
  • programming and scheduling (CAM/CAPP/CAD/CAE),
  • quality assurance and continuous improvement (lean manufacturing, complete quality management, agile manufacturing, etc.)
  • product design (assembly and manufacture)
  • intelligent manufacturing systems (flexible systems, integrated manufacturing, etc.)
  • contact mechanics (friction, tribology and tool wear)
  • robotics and applied automation (fuzzy logic and neural networks for manufacturing systems, improvement of sensors, controllers, actuators, etc.)
  • productive maintenance (machine failure prevention, production chain maintenance)
  • virtual reality (for machine tool performance, production lines, etc.)

Note
We invite authors to suggest and submit papers on all subjects of Product Design, Quality Engineering and Production Technology. This journal’s focus and scope is not limited to the topics mentioned above.
