Special Issue On: Industry 4.0 &Sustainability

Submission Due Date
3/31/2021

Guest Editors
Dr Suchismita Satapathy, KIIT University, India

Introduction
Industry 4.0 is the advanced change of assembling/creation and related ventures and worth creation measures. Industry 4.0 is utilized conversely with the fourth mechanical unrest and speaks to another phase in the association and control of the modern worth chain. The fourth Industrial Revolution is rising and developing at an exponential instead of a direct pace and upsetting pretty much every industry in each nation. These progressions flagging the change of whole frameworks of creation, the executives, and governance. Industry 4.0 could affect their business, a few others are actualizing changes and getting ready for a future where savvy machines heightening their business. This gathering will examine the effect of the change to the Fourth Industrial Revolution on Infrastructure, Ecosystem, Efficiency, and Competitiveness of mechanical activity. The effect of IoT and computerized reasoning on esteem chain backing and advancement are additionally examined. The operational difficulties of Industry 4.0 on specific ventures which are developing into shrewd activity regarding checking and controlling information will be available. The fundamental objective of Industry 4.0 is to make fabricating – and related enterprises, for example, coordinations – quicker, more proficient, and more client-driven, while simultaneously going past robotization and advancement and identify new business openings and models.

Introduction
While the pursuit of productivity and increment of electricity demand has resulted in the development of infrastructures, our social interests have shifted to sustainability, which respects environmental issues, people’s fundamental rights, cultural diversity, human well-being, and equality of human life.

Renewable energy sources generation and management oriented sustainability is a recent and promising research area. Interest is growing knowledge in adopting a sustainability perspective in these fields. Manufacturers need to expand their views from competitive product development to their systemic transformation in a way that can satisfy these new interests and demands. To achieve this, researchers should contribute to realizing sustainable socio-technical systems, which are dynamic and self-organizing relationships on personal, organizational, and social levels.

For this Special Issue titled “ADVANCE INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY WITH SUSTAINABILITY ENGINEERING “, we invite the submission of articles that foster discussion on the design and development of renewable energy sources, product–service systems, and manufacturing systems that will contribute to a sustainable society, management strategies for sustainable development, and the design and innovation of resilient socio-technical systems. This topic also includes a substantial improvement in predicting the optimal sets of design and operating variables for renewable energy systems. Regression techniques are well suited for learning patterns from the data, and therefore are applicable for monitoring and predicting renewable energy generation such as wind and solar energy. In addition, advanced classification methods can be employed to evaluate the security and stability of renewable penetrated power systems. Reinforcement learning can be used to provide emergency control actions to operators amid uncertainties of modern power system
