1. Session title: Digital Lifecycle Management of Complex Production Systems
Organizers: Dr. Pasquale Franciosa and Prof. Darek Ceglarek (Warwick University)
Integrating product development with digital and physical production has been associated with large improvements in product quality and significantly detect defect rates. More and more data from sensors can be gathered in-line/in-process and used to monitor every piece produced rather than using sampling to detect errors, and error-correcting machinery can adjust production processes in real time. However, data gathering and process monitoring alone are insufficient in modern manufacturing as they lack the capability to anticipate and prevent defects before they occur. This session will explore methods and tools for digital lifecycle management of complex productions system within automotive and aerospace industries, emphasising the need for a seamless integration between digital simulation tools and machine learning.
"Role of Category Theory in Design and Manufacturing”: Professor Eswaran Subrahmanian (CMU)
This conference will organise four parallel tutorials on Tuesday the 9th May 2017. Four topics below relevant to design will be given by an expert of the field. Each tutorial is a half-day starting from 13:00 to 17:30. There is a small participation fee of £100. As the space is limited, please register through this page. (This registration does not give a right to participate in the 27th CIRP Design Conference.)
Tutorials will be held in Building 50 and Building 30 (not in Vincent Building). There will be a separate reception desk in Building 50 opening at 11:00. Actual room location will be posted at the reception desk.
