The objectives of International Journal of Design and Manufacturing Technology (IJDMT) are to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions, industries and enterprises, professional organisations, policy makers, government agencies and persons concerned with the complex issues in design engineering and related subject areas. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in those areas. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change and changes in the global economy.
The journal reports on new developments, techniques, knowledge and applications in the practice of design, as well as design education: how design techniques may be taught, the approach to ill-defined problems and the impact of new technologies. Coverage includes design management, design methods, participation in planning and design, design education, AI and computer aids in design, design in engineering, theoretical aspects of design, design in architecture, design and manufacturing, innovation in industry and design and society.
Aim and Objectives
To bring together theories, models and actual products from related design areas, including engineering, architecture, industrial design and planning
To emphasise human aspects as a central issue of design through integrative studies of social sciences and design disciplines
To offer a platform for high-quality research, theory making, analysis, education, and practice
To support the dialogue between practitioners and academics, avoiding a purely academic discussion on design science
To highlight new developments in artifact design
IJDMT is an interdisciplinary and integrative process constituting an intellectual field of thinking and research and a professional field of practice and applied research. Therefore, design and manufacturing research will play one of two roles: (1) the scientific study of the process and the content of design, and (2) the development of methods and tools to enhance the quality of design practice based on the body of knowledge developed by the scientific study. Journal provides knowledge in areas and helps academics, researchers and professional designers working in the field of design and manufacturing engineering to disseminate information and to learn from each other’s work.
IJDMT publishes original papers, review papers, case studies, conference reports, book reviews, notes, and commentaries. Special Issues devoted to important topics in design and manufacturing technology will occasionally be published.
Subject Coverage IJDMT welcomes papers covering theories, models and actual products from related design areas, including manufacturing engineering, architecture, industrial design and planning. Recent topics covered include:
Expertise in design
Design learning strategies and design pedagogy
Design as a social process
Gaming and simulation in design
Designing user interfaces
The role of visual techniques in the design process
Design in engineering subject areas including: mechanical engineering, civil engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, sports engineering, manufacturing, production, control and automation, materials, etc
Computer aided design (CAD)
Computer aided manufacturing (CAM)
Computer aided engineering (CAE)
Web/Internet technologies in design engineering, such as grid computing, web-services
