Real-time state estimation and control in manufacturing systems
The goal of the MEGaFiT project was to construct a real-time control for a metal forming process, aiming to reduce the amount of erroneous products. The control strategy is based on process knowledge obtained through numerical modeling. Within MEGaFiT, two demonstrator projects are built and controlled as a proof-of-concept. We contributed to MEGaFiT in the field of numerical modeling, metamodeling and robust optimization.
