Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control Book Review:

To practice engineering effectively, engineers must need to have a working knowledge of statistical concepts and methods. What they do not need is a background heavy on statistical theory and number crunching. Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control provides the practical statistics foundation engineers can immediately apply to the work they do every day, regardless of their industry or specialty. The author illustrates statistical concepts and methods with authentic semiconductor manufacturing process examples-integrated circuit fabrication is an exceedingly rich medium for communicating statistical concepts. However, once learned, these concepts and methods can easily be extended and applied to a variety of other industries. The text emphasizes the application of statistical tools, rather than statistical theory. Modern advances in statistical software have made tedious computations and formula memorization unnecessary. Therefore, the author demonstrates software use throughout the book and supplies MINITAB examples and SAS programs. Review problems at the end of each chapter challenge and deepen readers' understanding of the material. Statistical Methods for Industrial Process Control addresses topics that support the work engineers do, rather than educate them as statisticians, and these topics also reflect modern usage. It effectively introduces novice engineers to a fascinating industry and enables experienced engineers to build upon their existing knowledge and learn new skills.

Data Driven Decision Making Under Uncertainty for Intelligent Life cycle Control of the Built Environment Book Review:

This dissertation provides novel frameworks for data-driven probabilistic performance-based assessments and optimal or near-optimal stochastic control strategies for structural, infrastructural and other engineering systems. The goal of this research is to enable efficient and robust structural performance predictions and optimized decisions over the entire operating life of systems, by developing advanced statistical learning models, machine learning formulations and Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, in order to contribute to a future of smart and sustainable infrastructure. To this end, the developed approaches build upon and extend well-established statistical modeling frameworks, infuse intelligence to structural informatics through newly introduced schemes for structural data mining and processing, provide comprehensive solutions to challenging life-cycle objectives, and support complex decisions in previously intractable sequential decision-making problems through novel AI-aided algorithms and theoretical concepts.Efficient assessment of various societal, environmental and economic losses necessitates adept statistical and learning models, able to consistently capture longitudinal dependencies in data and translate multivariate information in structural condition and performance metrics. This dissertation addresses this need, within a softmax regression fragility analysis framework that avoids fragility function crossing inconsistencies and scales well in high-dimensional intensity measure spaces with multiple structural states. Moreover, softmax-based fragility functions are generalized by advanced statistical learning and deep learning formulations that employ Dynamic Bayesian Networks (DBNs), in the form of Dependent Markov Models (DMMs) and Dependent Hidden Markov Models (DHMMs), as well as Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) architectures. The above considerably extend and generalize the framework of probabilistic performance engineering, with theoretically consistent multi-state multi-variate fragility functions, which also have multi-step predictive capabilities in time. The hidden spaces of DHMMs and RNNs are shown to be able to encode noisy input to noisy output sequences through structured hidden spaces. It turns out that the Markovian properties of these spaces can portray damage-consistent dynamics, whereas they are directly pertinent to the input required in advanced decision frameworks that employ Markovian processes for decision-making either under full, partial, or mixed observability assumptions.Hidden Markov models equipped with costs and control actions can provide a theoretically neat and computationally robust framework for sequential decision-making problems under uncertainty, through Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs). This research casts stochastic control problems for determination of optimal or near-optimal life-cycle maintenance and inspection strategies within the premises of POMDPs. Specialized formulations of full or mixed observability are also developed, through Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) or Mixed Observability Markov Decision Processes (MOMDPs), respectively. Along these lines, this research enables decision-support systems which can operate in stochastic engineering environments with uncertain action outcomes and noisy real-time observations, having global optimality guarantees as a result of the relevant underlying dynamic programming formulations introduced and, in many cases, well-defined performance bounds. In the same vein, the Value of Information (VoI) and the Value of Structural Health Monitoring (VoSHM) are quantified and a straightforward definition for the expected life-cycle gains of different observational and monitoring options is established and evaluated. Formulating VoI and VoSHM within the framework of POMDPs, the estimates of these metrics depict value gaps between the optimal life-cycle strategies of the examined options, thus also being able to provide bounds on the respective gains.For small- to medium-scale systems, solutions to the life-cycle optimization problems are derived by point-based solution schemes which provide efficient exploration heuristics, value function updates over the POMDP belief-space, vector compression techniques and convergence properties. For large-scale multi-component engineering systems that form large state and action spaces, such point-based schemes are however impractical as they require explicit prior information of the system dynamics model. To this end, the Deep Centralized Multi-agent Actor Critic (DCMAC) is developed herein and implemented in the solution procedure. DCMAC is an efficient off-policy actor-critic Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) algorithm with experience replay. DCMAC alleviates the curse of dimensionality related to state, observation and actions spaces of multi-component systems through deep network approximators and a factorized representation of the actor. DCMAC interacts directly with the simulator, thus avoiding the need for full and explicit model-based knowledge of the system dynamics, and operates in the POMDP belief space, by encoding sequences of actions and observations in belief vectors through Bayesian updates. Overall, DCMAC is able to efficiently tackle the state and action space scalability issues, as well as the potential model unavailability at the system level, all of which often make the decision problems of large multi-component systems hard to solve, if not intractable, by conventional machine learning schemes and other life-cycle optimization methodologies.All developed methods and frameworks are rigorously evaluated in relevant numerical applications and their strengths, limitations and broader capabilities are highlighted and discussed. Results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed models, solution procedures and algorithmic schemes, in enabling efficient data-driven probabilistic predictions and structural informatics, as well as comprehensive optimal or near-optimal stochastic control strategies for engineering systems. Overall, the originally developed statistical and machine learning models, in conjunction with the dedicated AI-aided algorithms, can ensure advanced and sophisticated solutions and open numerous new scientific paths towards smart cities, intelligent infrastructure, and autonomous control of the built environment.

Data Driven Modeling for Additive Manufacturing of Metals Book Review:

Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process in which a three-dimensional object is built by adding subsequent layers of materials. AM enables novel material compositions and shapes, often without the need for specialized tooling. This technology has the potential to revolutionize how mechanical parts are created, tested, and certified. However, successful real-time AM design requires the integration of complex systems and often necessitates expertise across domains. Simulation-based design approaches, such as those applied in engineering product design and material design, have the potential to improve AM predictive modeling capabilities, particularly when combined with existing knowledge of the underlying mechanics. These predictive models have the potential to reduce the cost of and time for concept-to-final-product development and can be used to supplement experimental tests. The National Academies convened a workshop on October 24-26, 2018 to discuss the frontiers of mechanistic data-driven modeling for AM of metals. Topics of discussion included measuring and modeling process monitoring and control, developing models to represent microstructure evolution, alloy design, and part suitability, modeling phases of process and machine design, and accelerating product and process qualification and certification. These topics then led to the assessment of short-, immediate-, and long-term challenges in AM. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
