Abstract

To employ data analytics effectively and efficiently on manufacturing systems, engineers and data scientists need to collaborate closely to bring their domain knowledge together. In this paper, we introduce a domain-specific modeling approach to integrate a manufacturing system model with advanced analytics, in particular, neural networks to model the predictions. This approach combines a set of meta-models and transformation rules based on the domain specific knowledge from manufacturing engineers and data scientists. This approach uses a model of a manufacturing process and its associated data as inputs, and generates a trained neural network model as an output for predicting a quantity of interest. This paper presents 1) the domain- specific knowledge that the approach should employ, 2) the formal workflow of the approach, and 3) a milling process use case to illustrate the proposed approach. We also discuss potential extensions of the approach.
