About these proceedings


This volume contains the edited version of the technical presentations of PROLMAT 2006, the IFIP TC5 international conference held on June 15-17, 2006 at the Shanghai University in China. The main theme of this conference is Knowledge Enterprise – Intelligent Strategies in Product Design, Manufacturing and Management. These proceedings focus on the issue of how to translate data and information into knowledge in manufacturing enterprises.

These papers, authored by experts from around the world, aim to bridge the gap between academic research and the implementation of information technology in industry. They cover a wide range of applications, including theory, architecture, methodology, implementation, and case study. Special topics include:

  • Knowledge Discovery and Management in Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing Business Intelligence and Data Mining
  • Product Life Cycles
  • Production Management
  • Intelligent Manufacturing Systems
