Industry 4.0 Technologies for Sustainable Asset Life Cycle Management

The Special Issue “Industry 4.0 Technologies for Sustainable Asset Life Cycle Management” of MDPI’s “Sustainability” (ISSN 2071-1050) invites researchers to make a submission. This issue belongs to the section “Sustainable Engineering and Science“.

Special Issue Information

Asset life cycle management is not a new concept for industries. Life cycle thinking means that people have a life cycle model in mind that affects the scope of their activities. A life cycle perspective for manufacturing assets is often mentioned in the literature regarding sustainability. This approach aims to understand and analyze individual stages of the asset life cycle, identify potential economic, social, and environmental risk factors and opportunities at each stage, and create possibilities to take advantage of these opportunities and reduce potential risks. In the Industry 4.0 era, manufacturers can monitor assets and make smart decisions in each phase of their life cycle through real-time communication and cooperation with humans, machines, sensors, etc. These technologies can support all stages of ALC through various emergent communication, information, and intelligence technologies. Technologies such as Digital Twin (DT), Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and their respective specialization to industry, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Cyber-Physical Production System (CPPS), are considered in this Special Issue to increase the effectiveness of asset life cycle management (ALCM).
