Smart Machining is a general term that refers to integrating intelligence to the machining processes in order to improve quality, increase machining performance, and allow reliable unattended operations. From another perspective, Smart Machining aims to reduce waste and simultaneously increase the agility of system to respond to design variations. In this context, Smart Machining not only optimizes individual machining processes, but also defines the optimum combination of machining processes to manufacture parts in order to reduce the manufacturing lead time. Cutting tools are one of the most important components of each machining systems and they play an important role in success or failure of a machining operation. Therefore, bringing intelligence to cutting tools is also a promising challenge that must be undertaken by researchers. This invited session would like to encourage researchers to present their novel ideas regarding Smart Machining and Smart Cutting Tools. The preferred topics include but are not limited to smart flexible manufacturing systems, integrating knowledge to the machining systems, smart cutting tools with embedded sensors to measure cutting force or temperature etc.
