The number of digital solutions based on machine learning has increased in recent years. In many industrial sectors, they try to enhance automation in manual or repetitive tasks or provide decision support for complex problems. Data plays an essential role in the selection and implementation of ML algorithms, as it determines the quality of the training and the results. As data drive ML models, selecting the correct data with the suitable ML algorithm for a given use case is crucial but challenging. This paper reviews the application of machine learning in the embodiment design phase addressing the challenge. The work focuses on ML applications in conventional product development and non-conventional additive manufacturing processes. Based on the literature review, the required knowledge to implement the ML algorithms has been derived and presented in a systematic approach. This work highlights the importance of an initial analysis of the existing knowledge in the engineering and additive manufacturing processes in order to implement the proper ML algorithms.

Keywords: Machine learning, Embodiment design, Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM), Knowledge
