In smart manufacturing, machine learning is used in various manufacturing fields at various stages such as for future prediction in the manufacturing system, pattern recognition, fault detection, quality control and monitoring. Machine learning (ML) is used for classification and regression purpose which can be achieved using the past data. Machine learning algorithms and combination of algorithms are widely used in various machining processes. This paper reviews different machine learning algorithms used for specific applications in the product life cycle.
