This paper presents the application of a neural network to quality control of a High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) process. HPDC is a complex process that is difficult to analyse and control by conventional methods which warrant the use of inductive methodologies such as neural networks. A feed forward neural network was used in this work to model the relationships between the process parameters and the quality indicators and a simple neural network based control framework is proposed to optimize the process parameters to produce castings ...
