With its Online Quality Control with Soft Sensors / Model based quality forecast the Brückner team will contribute to WP2, WP3 and WP6. Thereby, they will provide the project partners with knowledge regarding:

  • Faster Assessment of Quality Parameters
  • Cost Reduction as expensive Sensors can be replaced
  • Forecast of Machine Behaviour

Furthermore, Brückner will analyse the prediction of the future system behavior (predictive maintenance) in WP5 by:

  • Predict Failures
  • Detect System Anomalies
  • Prevent Downtime

In WP6 will investigate in the development of the HMI (Human-Machine-Interaction) and decision support system as follows:

  • Improve User Experience
  • Easier Usage of Machine

Finally, Brückner will be involved in WP1 (Requirement Analysis) with the main task to collect all internal Brückner requirements, group them into logical groups and prioritize them.
