Artificial Intelligence Applications in Manufacturing

Overview

The past decade has seen considerable advances in CAE tools that employ leading-edge artificial intelligence techniques and that can be used with CAD/CAM tools to reduce design costs.

In three parts, this book covers current Al applications that can prove beneficial in the design and planning stages of manufacturing, that can assist in solving scheduling and control problems, and that can be used in manufacturing integration.A. F. Famili is Research Scientist at the ...
