Shortening Ramp-Up Times
Depending on its complexity ramping up the production for a new product can take up to several months. The individual manufacturing segments individually try to reach their desired quality and production goals. However, since the processes are chained, this means that the optimization of a particular process section can break the quality of the subsequent processes. The goal is to:
When does manufacturing actually run well? This heavily depends on the use-case. Usally, one must balance many different interesets, for example:
Manufacturing environments continously change and the properties of supply material can only be fixed within a certain range. You want your process control to dynamically adapt to those changes, such that the production runs stable and smoothly.
