About these proceedings


This book gathers selected papers presented at the Second International Conference on Intelligent Manufacturing and Automation (ICIMA 2020), which was jointly organized by the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Production Engineering at Dwarkadas J. Sanghvi College of Engineering (DJSCE), Mumbai, and by the Indian Society of Manufacturing Engineers (ISME). Covering a range of topics in intelligent manufacturing, automation, advanced materials and design, it focuses on the latest advances in e.g. CAD/CAM/CAE/CIM/FMS in manufacturing, artificial intelligence in manufacturing, IoT in manufacturing, product design & development, DFM/DFA/FMEA, MEMS & nanotechnology, rapid prototyping, computational techniques, nano- & micro-machining, sustainable manufacturing, industrial engineering, manufacturing process management, modelling & optimization techniques, CRM, MRP & ERP, green, lean & agile manufacturing, logistics & supply chain management, quality assurance & environmental protection, advanced material processing & characterization of composite & smart materials. The book is intended as a reference guide for future researchers, and as a valuable resource for students in graduate and doctoral programmes.
