Information Centric Engineering (ICE) Frameworks for the Domain of Micro Devices Assembly - 06 10 2011
This presentation will provide an overview on the emergence of Information Centric Engineering (ICE) frameworks for the domain of micro devices assembly. MEMS technologies cannot be used when a micron size part design possesses complex features and varying material properties; in such contexts, micro assembly techniques have to be adopted to assemble a target design. The creation of agile cyber - physical environments in the context of ICE to support the assembly of micro devices will be discussed. The domain of Micro Assembly requires various heterogeneous resources which are physically distributed. In this context, the design of an advanced Internet based collaborative approach (supporting the use of such distributed resources) assumes significance; a Semantic Web based approach is proposed as part of the ICE framework.
