Artificial Neural Network, manufacturing


The neural network model is an advanced and effective tool aims at simulating the manufacturing operations. An important number of researchers have utilized artificial neural network (ANN) to optimising multiple response metrics in manufacturing applications. In the majority of situations, the use of ANN enables the prediction of the mechanical and physical properties of manufacturing goods based on provided technical data. To this end, the deployment of ANN in manufacturing sector is tremendously significant in terms of cost and material resource savings. Thus, Artificial neural network as a key component regarding the optimization of the manufacturing processes.
