Areas of expertise
MS comprise, in general:
Study of AMS entails analysis, simulation, design, implementation, controlling and monitoring them as well as individual constituents in combination to the pertinent manufacturing processes to the extent that this serves the creation of a system.
Automating selection of process stages, equipment and process conditions using intelligent systems (knowledge bases, neural networks and genetic algorithms) for cutting, casting and sheet forming processes.
Knowledge-based and expert systems
