About the Conference

India has an illustrious history and glorious past. Indians know Engineering since long; before four thousand years with start of civil engineering. The remains of Mohanjodado & Hadappa and the Buddhist sculptures spread all over India are sufficient to justify the fact. Educational Institutes like Nalanda, Takshsheela, Ujjaini were also contributing research & methods of education for the betterment of society. With this great historical background and for pouring excellence for betterment of society by assembling researchers, budding scientists from all over the world, we have decided to organize an International Conference on “Advances in Manufacturing & Technology Management”. Manufacturing, the important aspect of any general industry cannot progress without considering technological advancements. Continuously technological changes are taking place; for any industry to compete in this highly dynamic market it must be able to satisfy the customers with optimum utilization of all the resources. These things can only be done when the industries compete with the technological advancements and industries are required to be strengthened by putting into new ideas. A critical step in preparing for the future competitions will be the development of an underlying technical foundation through research not only by academician but also by industries, which has to be guided by a clear vision and understanding of manufacturing & fundamental challenges. This conference will be very helpful not only for the Indian Manufacturers but also for the manufacturers of rest of the world.
