The focus of materials process design research is to establish theories and scientific methods for in situ self improvement of the design and control of material processing using self-directed computer aided systems. The specific objectives are to 1 generate new methods and knowledge relative to the design process, 2 integrate, synthesize and generalize new knowledge in the form of axioms, and 3 automatically incorporate this new knowledge for use in improving materials research and process control metrics i.e., quality, time and cost. Long term the objective is to develop a language, principled in theories, for the development of virtual material processing systems and integrated, intelligent manufacturing systems across a Materials and Processing Information Highway.
