Seminar on “Optimization Techniques for Manufacturing Industries”
Last updated: Oct 04,2017
The department of Mechanical Engineering has organized a Seminar on “Optimization Techniques for Manufacturing Industries” for our students on 04.10.2017. Our Chief Guest Dr.S.Ayyappan M.E., Ph.D., Associate Professor, Government College of Engineering, Salem interacted with mechanical students. He discussed the importance of optimization and some basic concepts of different types optimization techniques. Some important optimization techniques like Taguchi method, Genetic Algorithm, GRA, Ant colony Algorithm. Generally optimization methods are used to reduce the number of trials and to get optimal process parameter combination for obtaining better output response. He explained the minimum norm theorem and usage of an optimization algorithm, where a set of equations can be obtained. These techniques are used to reduce machining time and material wastage.
