Enhanced Foundry Production Control [chapter]

Javier Nieves, Igor Santos, Yoseba K. Penya, Felix Brezo, Pablo G. Bringas
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we extend previous research on foundry production control by adapting and testing support vector machines and decision trees for the prediction in beforehand of the mechanical properties  ...  Specifically, ultimate tensile strength is the force a material can resist until it breaks and, thus, it is one of the variables to control in the foundry process.  ...  In this way, the most used techniques for the assurance of failure-free foundry processes, are exhaustive production control and diverse simulation techniques [1] but they are extremely expensive and  ...
