TITLE:  Data-driven Modeling for Smart Manufacturing


Modern manufacturing needs to optimize the entire product lifecycle to satisfy the highly diverse customer needs. With the deployment of Industrial Internet and sensor/actuator networks, data-driven decision making is expected to enable smart manufacturing to achieve high level of adaptability and flexibility. Such a manufacturing system generates spatially and temporally dense data sets. This talk focuses on data-driven modeling problems with functional data, where the models will be used in data-driven decision making in smart manufacturing. Examples in functional variable selections, in situ process modeling, and data interpretation from natural language processing perspective will be discussed in this talk. The methodology has been broadly applied to many advanced manufacturing processes, such as aero-engine manufacturing, crystal growth manufacturing, and additive manufacturing.  


Bio. Dr. Ran Jin is an assistant professor and the Director of Laboratory of Data Science and Visualization at the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech. He received his Ph.D degree in Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech. He worked with Prof. Jianjun(Jan) Shi on multistage manufacturing research in the System Informatics and Control group. After his graduation, his research focuses on Data Fusion in Smart Manufacturing, including the integration of different types of data sets (e.g., ensemble models), variables (e.g., quantitative and qualitative models), and information (e.g., product quality and equipment reliability) for synergistically modeling, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes and systems.
