    Optimization for advanced manufacturing processes in fabrication is becoming increasingly important around the world across a range of industries because of its improved productivity, capabilities, efficacy, and sustainability characteristics.

    This new book explains how to optimize various industrial systems and processes utilizing new significant statistical and evolutionary methodologies. Statistical, multi-criteria decision-making, and evolutionary strategies for single- and multi-objective optimization are covered here, with relevant theoretical details, salient characteristics, implementation processes, effectiveness studies, and results in manufacturing.

    The chapters present a variety of advanced manufacturing processes and optimization techniques. Processes are described with basic explanations, characteristics, and applications in various technological and biomedical domains. The chapters address the processes prediction of mechanical properties, design and development of tools, impact of power supply, increasing machining precision and efficiency, genetic algorithm optimization, additive manufacturing, and much more.

    Providing a comprehensive study of advanced manufacturing processes, this volume is a valuable reference for engineers and R&D researchers involved in optimization for advanced manufacturing processes as well as for academics and postgraduate-level students in mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, and machining processes.
