This book provides a detailed understanding of optimization methods as they are implemented in a variety of manufacturing, fabrication and machining processes. It covers the implementation of statistical methods, multi-criteria decision making methods and evolutionary techniques for single and multi-objective optimization to improve quality, productivity, and sustainability in manufacturing. It reports on the theoretical aspects, special features, recent research and latest development in the field.
Optimization of Manufacturing Processes is a valuable source of information for researchers and practitioners, as it fills the gap where no dedicated book is available on intelligent manufacturing/modeling and optimization in manufacturing. Readers will develop an understanding of the implementation of statistical and evolutionary techniques for modeling and optimization in manufacturing.
