Research Interests

Virtual manufacturing Work cell data communications for engineered product quality:

(PI: Dr. Ukpong}; Current
Quality attributes in manufacturing to be communicated automatically at each stage of manufacturing to ensure corrective feedback or process stage interruption.  The cumulative effects of quality attributes deviations downstream would be impactful in terms of cost strategy and product quality
