Intelligent Fault Correction and self Optimizing Manufacturing systems

The vision of IFaCOM is to achieve a near zero defect level of manufacturing for all kinds of manufacturing, with emphasis on production of high value parts, on large variety custom design manufacturing and on high performance products. This shall be achieved through: - Improved performance process control to reduce defect output and reduce the costs of defect avoidance. - Enhanced quality control to obtain more predictable product quality. - Enhanced manufacturing process capability independent of manufactured parts. The project has three core objectives: 1) Reach a level of excellence for a systematic body of knowledge on near zero defect manufacturing output through improved process control, and long range stability by use of intelligent manufacturing quality control systems. 2) Development of new manufacturing strategies and methods which will be demonstrated in industrial cases. Manufacturing processes will be brought into higher stability both on short and long term. 3) Implement process control strategies based on the use of advanced computational intelligence methods for analysis and decision making.
