The potential application of process monitoring and control in various industries is infinite and the impact is major. With computer-aided design and manufacturing, the process and tools can be managed beyond the reach of human hands. In the current environment, where computing power is increasing on an exponential scale and application software has been developing like blossoming spring flowers, material manufacturers can easily capitalize on these advantages. Conversely, major research is still needed in the in-situ sensing of material properties, the processing environment during fabrication processes, and adaptive control schemes to feed these parameters back to the process controllers.
