The Role of Intelligent Visualization in Smart Manufacturing

Advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) have continuously progressed in various sectors and play a significant role in the manufacturing industry. The current development of information technologies, smart and intelligent technologies, and the cyber system have given rise to the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, cloud computing, digital twin, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and cyber-physical systems. The introduction of these technologies into the manufacturing industry addresses various critical challenges while transforming traditional manufacturing into smart manufacturing. These technologies enables the acquisition and sharing of real-time manufacturing data, helping for fast and precise decision-making, and deviating considerable attention towards the next-generation industrial revolution. However, smart manufacturing needs to manage a large amount of industrial data generated from various manufacturing equipment and communicating devices with different data formats. In this scenario, intelligent visualization plays a significant role in understanding and explaining large and complex data for analysing manufacturing data, empowering people's insight into process innovation and productivity improvement. It can efficiently integrate machine-intelligence with human-intelligence to understand insight from the industrial data to support efficient decision-making under complex scenarios.

With the development of Industry 4.0, machine intelligent visual simulation and data processing grow exponentially in various industrial sector, including aerospace manufacturing, food processing, nuclear fuel processing, automotive manufacturing etc. Intelligent visualization can be applied at different stages of the manufacturing lifecycle like production planning, simulation, production monitoring, and testing. Hence with the use of smart technologies, the manufacturing data can be transformed into intelligent visualization.

This special issue focuses on exploring the application of emerging information technologies for visualization and analysis of industrial data at different manufacturing stages to build a smart manufacturing model with an intelligent decision support system. We welcome genuine and original research article that discovers an analytical solution to various industrial and manufacturing issue using intelligent and smart technologies.
