Role of the Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology (IWF)
In this sub-project, the IWF is initially focusing on data acquisition and structuring, which forms the basis for further analyses and the identification of suitable assistance systems. Furthermore, suitable line and production planning strategies are derived with the help of an agent-based process chain simulation. Finally, a data-based process optimisation takes place for various process steps at different locations of the company “Continental Automotive Technologies GmbH”. The focus is on injection moulding, among other things, for which a CAE process simulation and an AI-based surrogate model are being built. The findings from the various models are finally processed in dashboards, so that the findings can be relevant stakeholders in production.
