Welcome

The central theme of the 9th IFAC Conference on Manufacturing Modelling, Management and Control MIM 2019 will be

Digital and Resilient Manufacturing Networks 4.0

The aim of MIM 2019 is to bring together researchers and practitioners in industrial engineering, manufacturing systems, operations research, supply chain management, and business informatics to present and discuss emerging topics in modern manufacturing modeling, management, and control. MIM’2019 will follow a rich tradition of previous IFAC conferences and symposia in Manufacturing and Logistics held in Germany. IFAC MIM’2019 will focus in particular on the most innovative methods proposed in the last few years in the context of digitalization, risk management, and resilience in production and logistics systems in the 21st century.

The conference will cover all topics related to design, implementation and operation of modern manufacturing systems in digitalization era, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Design and reconfiguration of manufacturing systems
  • Facility planning and materials handling
  • Industry 4.0
  • Digital manufacturing networks and smart operations
  • Inventory control, production planning and scheduling
  • Risk management, resilience and flexibility
  • Logistics, supply chains and networks
  • Supply network dynamics and control
  • Control theory applications to production systems and supply chains
  • Operations and supply chain simulation
  • Sustainable manufacturing
  • Business analytics for manufacturing systems
