Examining the electrical and magnetic process parameters influencing the mechanical and metallurgical behavior is imperative for similar and dissimilar material joining process. Numerous researchers have continuously been involved in the detailed analysis of parametric impacts on conventional and advanced material joining processes while trivial research reports are available on electro-magneto aspects significantly governing the outcome. Further, the research reports emphasize the need for extensive investigations to determine the influence of parameters which is viewed from the insight of interdisciplinary functionaries and phenomenon. Hence, in this presentation, an attempt is to be made to explain the experimentally investigations for the globally adaptive manufacturing schema. Experimental trials based on DOE are to be conducted by varying the process parameters which may be electrical, mechanical, metallurgical or chemical. These studies would be made on advanced joining processes viz., Magnetically Impelled Arc Butt Welding (MIAB), Magnetic Pulse Welding (MPW), Ultrasonic Joining, Explosive and Electron Beam Welding. Subsequently, the specimens subjected to any particular process would be tested for its quality and strength based on which a parameter window is likely to be created. Statistical analysis is to be performed for evolving equations which would clearly indicate the interdependencies among the process parameters. Further, Finite Element Analysis employed for analyzing the distribution of current, flux, resistance, conductance and the associative interdisciplinary parameters in the specimens shall be discussed.
