Purpose and goal
In the AProC-project , methods and tools have been developed to achieve an efficient geomtry verification process as well as adjustment process. Goals: - Demonstrate functionality of effective measurement system and verification process - Demonstrate functionality of CBR to detect and propose corrective actions for dimensional deviations - Demonstrate functionality of flexible fixtures
Results and expected effects
Results: All of the goals have been reached in AProC. These goals were defined for part one in this project. Part two will focus on connecting the different WP with an automated solution and then will goals be set for more industrial implemented solution. An efficient geometry verification process together with and process adjustment procedure reduce the production lead time due to decreased need for adjustment outside the process flow and reduction of process disturbances.
Approach and implementation
The project consists of five work-packages (WP) and a complementary work package for dissertation and report. Following issues will be adressed in separate Work Packages: - Efficient in-line measurement system - Process line in lab scale for system development - Methods/algorithms for decision support of corrective actions - Lab scale station for corrective action for demonstrator - New flexible tooling to support jig changes populated from the decision system - The functionality will be demonstrated in a demonstrator cell.
