The key theme on smart factories encompasses many topics of interests; for example, digital design, novel control algorithms, digital twins, cobots (collaborative robots) and more. Furthermore, in today’s pandemic world which has significantly transformed the way traditional manufacturing industries operate, there is an even greater drive for a change in the manufacturing paradigm. Scientists and engineers of today should take bold steps in proposing and validating new workspace architecture that is reflective of the future. For instance, the development of digital twins or even virtual collaborative manufacturing are key drivers as we move into a future where both the virtual world and reality become seamless.</p> Matthew Chin Heng Chua ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2022-02-24 2022-02-24 1 1 1 2 10.25082/RIMA.2022.01.001
