About this journal

The International Journal on Interactive Design and Manufacturing (IJIDeM) presents interdisciplinary research, technical issues, and original industrial implementations. It examines the development, handling, and design of highly realistic, multi-sensorial virtual prototypes for improving decision-making in product design and manufacturing. Readers discover cutting-edge research in the fields of mechatronics, design and manufacturing sciences, numerical and mechanical engineering, and virtual reality.

IJIDeM explores a variety of techniques, including the description of industrial problems in identifying significant knowledge and variables; advanced modeling of design and manufacturing problems; virtual exploration of solution spaces; building of highly realistic, multi-sensorial simulators; and implementation of user-centered, innovative methods.
