Artificial Intelligence Applications in Manufacturing
Industrial managers, engineers, and technologists have many expectations from AI and its application to knowledge-based systems. This book presents a number of notable applications of AI in manufacturing that relate directly or indirectly to the enhancement of planning and decision making capabilities in today's automated production environments. The book is intended as a reference for senior undergraduate and graduate students interested in the applications of AI in production and should also be of interest to practitioners in industry, researchers in universities, or developers in research institutes. The book contains three sections. Section one focuses on the applications of AI in design and planning; section two is devoted to the AI applications in scheduling and control; and section three is about the use of AI in manufacturing integration.
