Proceedings of the 2022 International Conference on Smart Manufacturing and Material Processing (SMMP2022)
Smart manufacturing is a broad category of manufacturing that employs computer-integration, high levels of adaptability and rapid design changes, together with digital information technology and a technically-trained workforce.
This book presents the proceedings of SMMP2022, the 2022 International Conference on Smart Manufacturing and Material Processing, held on 12 and 13 August 2022 as a virtual event due to continuing restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and hosted from Shanghai, China. The conference provides a platform for researchers and scientists from smart manufacturing and material sciences to come together with researchers from various other application areas to discuss problems and solutions, identify new issues, and shape future directions for research. The conference received 60 submissions. These were submitted to a rigorous peer review process by a committee of experts from various disciplines, after which, 23 were accepted for presentation at the conference and publication here. The topics covered include materials processing and product manufacture, sensors and smart material systems, functional materials, industrial automation and process control, and discussion of the state-of-the-art and future direction of smart manufacturing and material sciences.
Providing an overview of current developments in smart manufacturing and material processing, the book will be of interest to all those working in the field.
