Advances in Future Manufacturing Engineering
Proceedings of the 2014 International Conference on Future Manufacturing Engineering (ICFME 2014), Hong Kong, December 10-11, 2014
The International Conference on Future Manufacturing Engineering (ICFME 2014) was held in Hong Kong, December 10-11, 2014. It gathered academics, industry managers and experts, manufacturing engineers, university students all interested or proficient in the field of manufacturing engineering, including research, design and development of systems, processes, machines, tools and equipment. The manufacturing engineer’s primary focus is to turn raw materials into a new or updated product in the most economic, efficient and effective way possible. This field also deals with the integration of different facilities and systems for producing quality products (with optimal expenditure) by applying the principles of physics and the results of manufacturing systems studies, such as Design and Manufacturing, Materials Science and Materials Processing Technology, Computer-aid Manufacturing, Mechanics.
Manufacturing engineers develop and create physical artifacts, production processes, and technology, a very broad area which includes the design and development of products. The manufacturing engineering discipline has very strong overlaps with mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, production engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, computer science, materials management, and operations management. Manufacturing engineers’ success or failure directly impacts the advancement of technology and the spread of innovation.
This proceedings aims to assess the state of scientific research in various areas of Manufacturing Engineering and will be an interesting source of information for the international engineering scientific community.
