It is our utmost pleasure to greet you to the International Journal of Technology (IJTech) publication. Considering the significant increased numbers of paper submission to IJTech, we are pleased to inform that IJTech publication will increase its publication volumes to heighten our journal service and quality. Following five years of biannually published, starting from this edition IJTech will increase both publication time (from two times in year to four times in year-January, April, July, October) and numbers of articles in each issue (from ten to twenty articles). It is expected that this policy will attract more papers and boosting research dissemination on technology development around the globe. Technology development is a significant key effort to gain product/project competitive advantages. Furthermore, designs and technologies evolve through different phases and may requires different methods, process and technology improvements to speed them along – from creating ideas, producing new prototypes to product commercialization. Methods and process improvements is also one of important tools to introduce process changes to improve the quality of a product or service, to better match end user needs. Thus the development of technologies that includes improvements to the design, methods and processes should be properly and carefully managed. In response to these issues, we are pleased to present twenty selected papers dedicated to managing technology towards sustainable products and services development. Within this theme, the issue discusses on technology management to define creative alternatives process to produce an effective solution for design and technology improvement. The following papers focus on modification, optimization, improvement, and technology implementation towards sustainable product and services.
