e-Manufacturing and e-Science: Application Perspectives’
E-manufacturing is becoming the catalyst and prime mover for the most radical changes in manufacturing since the industrial revolution. It will impose real time transparency on all manner of manufacturing operations/transactions such as:
E-manufacturing is a part of e-science activity particularly from the engineering application point of view, including e-automation, e-instrumentation, e-supply chains and e-engineering, etc. E-manufacturing is opening up opportunities for data intensive activities such as on-line monitoring and diagnostics of machine tools conditions and knowledge intensive processes including new product development, complex systems modelling and simulation, and real time decision-making supports and complex problems solving, etc. Extended networks of engineers, working together using common product data models across time zones are technically feasible and many larger manufacturers are embracing this opportunity for reducing product lead time and increasing the exploitation and sharing of design and manufacturing expertise, as well as support for engineering innovation and complex problems solving.
The proposed mini-workshop aims to provide a forum to explore and debate the application perspectives of e-Manufacturing and e-Science with particular reference to complex engineering problems solving through a number of application systems developed by the presentation authors based on their own front-end research and first-hand engineering practices.
The invited presenters and their presentation titles are:
Each speaker will give 20-30 min Powerpoint presentation combining with a demo of the application systems developed (if possible). There will be 45-60 min collective discussions at the end of the workshop.
