It is with great pleasure that the University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Sciences and Technology of Tîrgu-Mureș - Faculty of Engineering in collaboration with Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences invites you to the International Conference Interdisciplinarity in Engineering INTER-ENG 2018. The conference will be jointly organized and hosted by the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of “Petru Maior” University of Tîrgu-Mureș.

The main theme of the Conference is announced as:

    "Emerging manufacturing technologies which create a path to tomorrow's innovations"

The conference scope is to provide a professional and scientific forum for engineers and research scientists from universities, research centers and industry to present research works, contributions and recent developments as well as current practices in engineering.

The INTER-ENG conference will also offer the opportunity for companies in engineering to present their products and services.

The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to the following major topics as they relate to the industrial and electrical engineering and industrial management:

  • Advanced manufacturing technology
  • Manufacturing process modeling
  • Automation and robotics in manufacturing
  • Sensing and control
  • Manufacturing system design and operations
  • Biomanufacturing
  • Micro/nano manufacturing
  • Lean manufacturing
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Non-conventional manufacturing process
  • Manufacturing process control
  • Sustainable manufacturing
  • Advances in gear and transmission manufacturing
  • CAD/CAM/CAE integrated systems
  • Manufacturing tools and equipment
  • Education for sustainable manufacturing
  • Remanufacturing, reuse and recycling
  • Value creation by sustainable manufacturing
  • Quality control in manufacturing
  • New and advanced materials
  • Information systems technology
  • Advanced software technology
  • Intelligent systems and technologies
  • Parallel and distributed computing technology
  • Power and energy systems
  • Optimization techniques

    Emerging manufacturing technologies a support for the incoming industrial revolution

The manufacturing world has been profoundly changed by the previous industrial revolutions. The early twenty-first century has already brought another change, resulting in a shift to mass customization and even mass personalization.

We are currently witnessing the beginning of this shift, however, and many manufacturing companies still use “assemble-to-order” configurations in order to create standardized products for their customers.

The last decades have brought enormous changes in the manufacturing environment. The increasing use of cheap sensors and actuators communicating through a network, most frequently Internet, have all been breakthrough innovations, enabling real-time connection between systems, machines, tools, workers, customers and products. It has led to an impressive quantity of data generated by these connect objects, and this raw material has shaped the identity of the 21st century, allowing the development of a new production paradigm called personalized production, which allows the customer to become involved since the product design phase.

Manufacturing changed into mass production due to industrial revolutions. There is an emerging production paradigm, brought about by the new industrial revolution. The focus falls either on smart manufacturing or additive manufacturing, which results in an ideal production system with the advantages of both economies of scale and scope.

Faced with so many changes, manufacturing industries have started to combine manufacturing per se with information technology, in order to increase their competitiveness. Virtual reality has come to be used in product development processes in manufacturing enterprises, helping to achieve rapid consolidation of information and decision-making through visualization and experience.

From the organizational semiotic perspective, a new socio-cyber-physical system-based manufacturing can be proposed, with two models: wisdom manufacturing and social manufacturing, which are the logical extension of smart manufacturing and additive manufacturing, respectively.

This edition of the conference aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to review the recent developments in the area of emerging manufacturing technologies and to identify possible trends for further development, as well as to attract industrial partners interested in the application of these new development dimensions.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Tîrgu Mureș!
