The Chair of Production Metrology and Quality Management at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University under the direction of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Robert H. Schmitt works and researches on the industrialization of operational processes in production engineering.
Industrialization is the collection of relevant and objective data and their feedback and utilization in the operational context of control loops. The measurement data recorded in networked manufacturing and assembly processes are analysed and prozessed in virtual models, while quality management is used to create suitable structures for targeted use. The result is the realization of capable processes with predictable results in defined time.
