Speech Title: Current and Future Trends of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
Abstract: Manufacturing has evolved from manual operations with mechanically driven tools and machines to computer-integrated and sensor-controlled autonomous equipment. This presentation looks at some of the changing scenarios of manufacturing technologies in the recent 30 years. The observation is made from the trend of submission of research papers to the prominent manufacturing engineering journals. Several notable and emerging areas of development are hybrid machining, virtual and augmented reality applications, industrial internet of things (IIoT), artificial intelligence of things (AIoT), cloud and ubiquitous manufacturing, big data analytics and Industry 4.0, digital twin among other IT-intensive technologies.
