Computational Intelligence in Manufacturing addresses applications of AI, machine learning and other innovative computational techniques across the manufacturing supply chain. The rapid development of smart or digital manufacturing known as Industry 4.0 has swiftly provided a large number of opportunities for product and manufacturing process improvement. Selecting the appropriate technologies and combining them successfully is a challenge this book helps readers overcome . It explains how to prepare different manufacturing cells for flexibility and enhanced productivity with better supply chain management, e.g., calibrating design machine tools for automation and agility. Computational intelligence applications for non-conventional manufacturing processes such as ECM and EDM are covered alongside recent advances in traditional processes like casting, welding and metal forming. As well as describing specific applications, this practical guide also explains the computational intelligence paradigm for enhanced supply chain management.

Key Features
