Moving Toward The Automation Of The Systematic Review Process: A Summary Of Discussions At The Second Meeting Of International Collaboration For The Automation Of Systematic Reviews (Icasr), Annette M. O'Connor, Guy Tsafnat, Stephen B. Gilbert, Kristina A. Thayer, Mary S. Wolfe Jan 2018

Moving Toward The Automation Of The Systematic Review Process: A Summary Of Discussions At The Second Meeting Of International Collaboration For The Automation Of Systematic Reviews (Icasr), Annette M. O'Connor, Guy Tsafnat, Stephen B. Gilbert, Kristina A. Thayer, Mary S. Wolfe

Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The second meeting of the International Collaboration for Automation of Systematic Reviews (ICASR) was held 3–4 October 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. ICASR is an interdisciplinary group whose aim is to maximize the use of technology for conducting rapid, accurate, and efficient systematic reviews of scientific evidence. Having automated tools for systematic review should enable more transparent and timely review, maximizing the potential for identifying and translating research findings to practical application. The meeting brought together multiple stakeholder groups including users of summarized research, methodologists who explore production processes and systematic review quality, and technologists such as software developers ...


Automated Manufacturability Analysis For Conceptual Design In New Product Development, Michael Hoefer, Niechen Chen, Matthew C. Frank Jan 2017

Automated Manufacturability Analysis For Conceptual Design In New Product Development, Michael Hoefer, Niechen Chen, Matthew C. Frank

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

This paper presents ANA, a software package that provides automated manufacturability feedback to product designers, enabling first time quality of design and avoiding later stage change requests. Manufacturing knowledge is critical to the design process. Decisions made early in the conceptual design phase can significantly affect downstream production cost. Manufacturing engineers may have a limited role in the design process which can lead to designs that are difficult to manufacture. ANA is the implementation of numerous feature-free geometric algorithms that determine manufacturability metrics related to machining, casting, die-casting, and welding processes. These metrics are accompanied by colored 3D graphical models ...


A Design Framework For Off-Road Equipment Automation, Brian L. Steward, Lie Tang, Shufeng Han Jan 2015

A Design Framework For Off-Road Equipment Automation, Brian L. Steward, Lie Tang, Shufeng Han

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Design frameworks can be helpful in the development of complex systems needed to automate machines. Designing autonomous off-road machinery requires having the means for managing the complexity of multiple interacting systems. A design framework, consisting of four technical layers, is presented. These layers are (1) machine architecture, (2) machine awareness, (3) machine control, and (4) machine behavior. Examples of technology advanced in development efforts of autonomous, robotic platforms for agricultural applications are provided. Linkages were made to applications in the construction machinery sector. Similarities between agricultural and construction automation exist in each of the technical layers.


Flight Deck Information Automation: A Human-In-The-Loop In-Trail Procedure Simulation Study, Emmanuel Letsu-Dake, William Rogers, Stephen D. Whitlow, Michael Dillard, Michael C. Dorneich, Rachel Dudley Jan 2015

Flight Deck Information Automation: A Human-In-The-Loop In-Trail Procedure Simulation Study, Emmanuel Letsu-Dake, William Rogers, Stephen D. Whitlow, Michael Dillard, Michael C. Dorneich, Rachel Dudley

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

Information automation systems are generally intended to support pilot tasks and improve flightcrew awareness and decision making, but not to directly control the aircraft or its systems. As a result these systems do not include cases where automation decisions and actions directly affect the aircraft performance, flight path or systems. Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) operational concepts and technologies will dramatically affect both the types and amount of information available on flight decks. Much of that information will be produced by flight deck information automation systems that collect, process, and present that information to the flightcrew. It is therefore ...


Automated Fixture Design For A Rapid Machining Process, Wutthigrai Boonsuk, Matthew C. Frank Jan 2009

Automated Fixture Design For A Rapid Machining Process, Wutthigrai Boonsuk, Matthew C. Frank

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Publications

Rapid prototyping techniques for CNC machining have been developed in an effort to produce functional prototypes in appropriate materials. One of the major challenges for rapid machining is to develop an automatic fixturing system for securing the part during the machining process. The method proposed in this paper is the use of sacrificial fixturing, similar to the support structures in existing rapid processes like Stereolithography. During the machining process, sacrificial supports emerge incrementally and, at the end of the process, are the only entities connecting the part to the stock material. This paper presents methodologies for the design of sacrificial ...
