Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Manufacturing systems represent the vast majority of most industrial capital. For the management and the design of such systems, integrated approaches are becoming an important issue attracting researchers from reliability & maintenance as well as the operational research communities. Recently, several studies demonstrated indeed the benefit of joint decision on production and maintenance planning. In addition to maintenance and production activities, other studies considered also quality control. Many analytical and simulation models have been proposed to support joint decision making. There are however many important areas of manufacturing systems decision making that are not studied or are insufficiently covered such as warranty, logistics in addition to sustainable aspects
