Abstract

Companies in today’s global manufacturing environment compete strongly to produce high-quality products at a low cost. Helping manufacturers meet these goals has been a trend toward increasingly automated manufacturing using modern technology. For ex- ample, automated computer numerical control (CNC) cells can lower labor costs and increase production by al- lowing a single operator to run several cells at once (Mills Manufacturing Technology, 2003). However, the lack of continuous operator monitoring can lead to defects. This limitation must be addressed to optimize automated machining processes.
