The move to Industry 4.0 will bring many advances in efficiency and productivity. The degree to which these advances are achieved will depend largely on how industrial management control systems are designed and used to achieve sustainable development. Sustainability and its further development will bring new goals and objectives to industrial processes. These will have to be established, fixed, evaluated, and corrected by control systems.
This special issue on "Industrial Management Control Systems for Sustainable Development" aims to bring together the most outstanding research and comprehensive coverage of all aspects related to management control for sustainable development, covering a wide range of technologies, tools, and techniques to generate sustainable development through industrial control mechanisms. This special issue will bring together high-quality research articles on different aspects of Management Control Systems, including the current situation and outstanding challenges in sustainable development. Topics include, but not limited to:
- Control modelling for sustainable development. Reviews of the state of the art, including predictions, future scenarios, or future challenges.
- Tools of control and sustainability in industrial SMEs and supply and distribution chains.
- Impact of the management and control of the sustainable development in the food industry, pharmaceutical, or other industries that generate high ranges of waste.
