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 Schmitt works and researches on the industrialization of operational processes in production engineering.
One of the main tasks is to support manufacturing companies in the field of measurement and assembly technology through individual technology development, consulting and research. The focus is on modelling through valid measurement data acquisition as a pioneer for Industry 4.0.
The focus is not only on the technical implementation of socio-technical systems but also on their improvement. This is done by researching the human being in highly technical systems and by supporting organizational and procedural processes with smart devices.
The challenges and questions of data- and quality-driven product development at IoP are the focus of the department. In addition, the recording and integration of relevant customer data is taken over to increase product quality.
