Modeling and Control for Advanced Manufacturing Systems
Abstract: Manufacturing has undergone significant changes over the past five-ten years thanks to technological advancements that have been leveraged to meet a diverse set of customer requirements driven by global and societal needs. Conventional manufacturing control strategies were typically designed for robustness and speed within a controlled and well-regulated environment. However, recent demands for customization and agility coupled with big data investments have provided an opportunity for more learning-based methods to be introduced. Data driven strategies have long provided a means of harnessing information to enhance the performance of these complex systems. In this talk, motivated by real-world interest from industry, we will demonstrate how an improved understanding of how to combine data-based learning and experiential knowledge to make intelligent decisions can save time, money, and resources in advanced manufacturing processes.
