The Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing invites paper submissions
for consideration in a special issue devoted to the application of
artificial intelligence (AI, ES, ANN, etc.) for design, planning,
scheduling and control of flexible manufacturing/assembly systems
and cells. Papers reporting actual implementations of such intelligent
models, tools or methodologies at industrial settings are most
Both theoretical and empirical research papers are invited. However,
papers reporting ONLY theoretical development are not adequate for this
