Pagination or Media Count:
A workshop was held to discuss a new paradigm for choosing the preferred materials and processes needed for manufacturing a component, based on an analysis of the targeted attributes, performance and cost. This paradigm was developed around the idea of a knowledge highway--a disciplined process for generating, storing and using the Information most relevant to the manufacturing and design engineers. Model systems were used to develop this Idea, which combined many of the technical aspects of greatest concern in manufacturing and design-processing, microstructural evolution, property profiles, fall-safe design, and costing. The concept Integrated experimental studies, simulation and analysis. The final result would be software designed to be used by manufacturing and design engineers In selecting materials and processes to meet specific technicalcommercial objectives.
