Research lines and interests:

- Process and productivity improvement: high speed machining (HSM), grinding, sheet metal folding, precision control and surface roughness, machine sensor systems, process monitoring, diagnostics and control.

- Planning, organization and control of processes: computer-aided process planning (CAPP) systems, production planning control (PPC) systems and the integration of both.

- Quality: total quality management and assurance standards (ISO 9001), environmental standards (ISO 14001), health and safety, Lean Manufacturing, etc.

- Product design: specifications, design for manufacturing (DFM), design for assembly (DFA), design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA), design for the environment (DFE) or eco-design, and design for six sigma (DFSS) systems.

- Environmentally sensitive production: ccontrol, reduction and management of environmental impact, life-cycle analysis (LCA), reuse, recycling and recovery of components, surplus materials, chips, waste and residues of the productive process.
