The objective of the journal is to serve the needs of the decision making, lean manufacturing and management engineering community by acting as the focus for the communication of research results, reviews of progress and discussions of issues of emerging interest to those in this rapidly expanding field. Contributions are classified as research papers and review articles.
Research papers should be a record of original research and approximately 5,000 to 7,500 equivalent words in length. With application papers, originality should be demonstrated by applying management science techniques to a problem with interesting new aspects or by providing fresh insights leading to successful implementation. Review articles are also published but normally only on invitation.
Interested authors should consult the Editor before preparation of such articles.
