- IEMS has been launched in 2002 by the APIEMS (Asia Pacific Industrial Engineering and Management Systems Conference) and now it is an official journal of APIEMS and KIIE (Korean Institute of Industrial Engineers). IEMS is intended for reporting original quality works on industrial engineering and management systems. The journal publishes original works that have significant theoretical and academic values, novel industrial applications, and case studies. Every manuscript is strictly reviewed by two or more anonymous referees and final acceptance decision is made based on the review reports. The journal aims at speedy review and processing within 3 months and it will publish four issues per year.
- Industrial Engineering and Management Systems (IEMS) covers all areas of industrial engineering and management sciences including but not limited to, applied statistics and data mining, business and information systems, computational intelligence and optimization, environment and energy, ergonomics and human factors, logistics and transportation, manufacturing systems, planning and scheduling, quality and reliability, supply chain management and inventory systems.
