A REVIEW ON APPLICATIONS OF EXPERT SYSTEM TO DIE DESIGN
Keywords:Sheet Metal Industries, Die Design, Artificial Intelligence, Expert systems
Die design is one of the major activities in tool design department of sheet metal industries. The traditional process of die design is complex, time consuming and requires highly experienced die designers. Recently, various artificial intelligence (AI) techniques are being used in this area to minimize the dependency on human expertise and time taken in design process as well as to improve design efficiency. Expert system is one of the most powerful tools for solving engineering design problems which require human expertise. This paper presents a review on applications of expert systems to die design. Published literature in the domain area is summarized in tabular form. Based on the critical review of available literature, scope for further research work is identified.
