About this product
- DescriptionThis cutting-edge book covers emerging, evolutionary and nature inspired optimization techniques in the field of advanced manufacturing. The complexity of real life advanced manufacturing problems often cant be solved by traditional engineering or computational methods. Hence, in recent years researchers and practitioners have proposed and developed new strands of advanced, intelligent techniques and methodologies. Evolutionary computing approaches are introduced in the context of a wide range of manufacturing activities, and through the examination of practical problems and their solutions, readers will gain confidence to apply these powerful computing solutions. The initial chapters introduce and discuss the well established evolutionary algorithm, to help readers to understand the basic building blocks and steps required to successfully implement their own solutions to real life advanced manufacturing problems. In the later chapters, modified and improved versions of evolutionary algorithms are discussed. The book concludes with appendices which provide general descriptions of several evolutionary algorithms.
- Author BiographyManoj Tiwari is based at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. He is an acknowledged research leader and has worked in the areas of evolutionary computing, applications, modeling and simulation of manufacturing system, supply chain management, planning and scheduling of automated manufacturing system for about 20 years. Jenny A. Harding joined Loughborough University in 1992 after working in industry for many years. Her industrial experience includes textile production and engineering, and immediately prior to joining Loughborough University, she spent 7 years working in R&D at Rank Taylor Hobson Ltd., manufacturers of metrology instruments. Her experience is mostly in the areas of mathematics and computing for manufacturing.
