Abstract: This paper discusses the basic concept Machine learning and its techniques, algorithms as well the impact of Machine Learning in Manufacturing processes and Industrial Production. There has been an unprecedented increase in the data available in the last couple of decades. This has enabled machine learning to be applied in various fields. Machine learning is field of study which enables the computer system to learn automatically as well as improve from experience and perform various tasks without explicit instructions. The primary aim of machine learning is to allow the computers learn automatically without human assistance or intervention and adjust actions accordingly It is being employed in many fields. Manufacturing one area where machine learning is very useful. This paper discusses the various areas where machine learning can improve the process of manufacturing like predictive maintenance, process optimisation, quality control, scheduling of resources among others. This can be done by employing various machine learning techniques and algorithms using concepts such as deep learning, neural networks, supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning. The relationship of how machines and humans can co-exist and work together to improve the efficiency of production is also discussed. Industry 4.0 or fourth revolution that has occurred in manufacturing which deals with advent of automation in manufacturing industry and its significance is discussed. We take a look at the various benefits and applications of machine learning in the field of manufacturing engineering. This paper also discusses the various challenges and future scope of employing machine learning in the manufacturing.
Keywords: Machine Learning, Industry 4.0, Manufacturing, Automation.
