The Second Asia Pacific Conference on Manufacturing System (APCOMS) 2009

APCOMS2009
The Second Asia Pacific Conference on Manufacturing System
4-5 November 2009, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

The Asia Pacific Conference on Manufacturing System is a biannual conference which aimed at providing a forum for presenting new ideas and practices on the current issues of manufacturing system among international researchers and the industry. The second Asia Pacific Conference on Manufacturing System will be held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Conference theme and topics:
The theme for this conference is Reconfigurable Manufacturing System for Facing Turbulent Manufacturing Environment. Recent economic situation caused a more turbulent environment for manufacturing which requires greater effort on realizing the concept of reconfigurable manufacturing system. It is widely accepted that current turbulent manufacturing environment forced manufacturing enterprises to build capability to reconfigure its system in line with the environment change. The manufacturing enterprises must be able to adapt to the environment changes and transforming its system effectively and efficiently for gaining competitiveness. All papers related to theoretical development and applications of reconfigurable manufacturing system are mostly wellcome. Relevant topics include, but not limited to:

  1. Assembly Design & System
  2. Decision Analysis
  3. Facility Design
  4. Flexible Manufacturing System
  5. Information System & Technology
  6. Lean Manufacturing
  7. Manufacturing Automation
  8. Manufacturing System Design
  9. Manufacturing Integration
  10. Manufacturing Strategy
  11. Product Design
  12. Process Planning
  13. Production Planning & Control
  14. Production Network
  15. Quality Engineering
  16. Quality Management
  17. Supply Chain System
  18. System Optimization
  19. System Simulation
  20. Technology Management
