WP7: Configuration & Optimization for fast production ramp-up
This work package will develop methods and models, which are used to enhance the capabilities of existing machine controls. These methods will be integrated in the NETDEVs (WP4). A novel approach will decompose nowadays complex and non-modular algorithms into sets of individual models; these in turn will increase reusability of existing models for various aspects the control. A coordination of these models will allow for solution finding and distributed optimization of process parameters of one NETDEV and also along the whole process chain. The models will be able to work independently from each other. According to the final definition of the NETDEVs, the following models will be developed:
(i) Parameter optimization model, (ii) Process model, (iii) Sensor models, (iv) Quality model, (v) Maintenance model, (vi) Task-interpretation model, (vii) Internal state representation, (viii) Condition monitoring model and (ix) Visualization.
This work package aims to the following objectives:
Design of plug-in architecture for decomposition of complex predictive models
- Definition of basic process and quality models
- Definition of a model for ramp-up optimization for NETDEVs
- Customizable orchestration of optimization along the process chain ("NETDEV downstream optimization")
Partner University of Applied Science Karlsruhe will lead this work package with the support of Harms&Wende, AWL, Fraunhofer IPA, GAMAX, Technax, Faculty of Engineering at Porto University, IEF Werner, and Freedom Grow.
Recent developments and results will be presented here soon.
