Neural Network Applications to Manufacturing Processes: Monitoring and Control

WithHyung Suck Cho

The nature of today’s manufacturing systems is changing with greater speed than ever and is becoming tremendously sophisticated due to rapid changes in their environments that result from customer demand and reduced product life cycle. Accordingly, the systems have to be capable of responding to the rapid changes and solving the complex problems that occur in various manufacturing steps. The monitoring and control of manufacturing processes is one of the important manufacturing step that requires the capabilities described in the above.
