10th IFAC Conference on Manufacturing Modelling, Management and Control MIM 2022
The 10th IFAC triennial Conference MIM (Manufacturing Modelling, Management and Control) took place from June 22 to June 24, 2022, in Nantes, France (see hub.imt-atlantique.fr/mim2022) with as an objective to discuss new challenges for management and control in the Industry 4.0 era. The aim of this large international conference was to bring together researchers and practitioners from different countries to present and discuss emerging topics in modern decision aid theory, manufacturing modeling, management, and control. IFAC MIM’2022 followed a rich tradition of previous IFAC conferences and symposia in Manufacturing and Logistics held in France (as INCOM 2006, MIM 2016). IFAC MIM’2022 was focused in particular on the most innovative methods proposed in the last few years in the context of applications of artificial intelligence in industry, taking into account the role of new technologies (e.g., blockchains, IoT, edge computing) and emerging scientific domains (e.g., big data, analytics, risk management) in the production management and control. In addition, many other related topics were considered, e.g. human-centric production, optimization under specific workforce constraints, explainability and ethics in decision aid models, human-machine interaction issues, generative design approaches, etc. and their place in new decision aid tools in industry.
