Manufacturing processes typically involve the reshaping of materials from one form to another under a set of processing conditions. This article discusses the two classification schemes of modeling for manufacturing processes, namely, on-line or off-line models, and empirical, mechanistic, or deterministic models along with their important considerations. It describes the various aspects of modeling of deformation processes, casting operations, and fusion welding processes, with examples.
