In October, our partner Brunel University London participated in the Digital Technology in Laser Manufacturing Workshop held by the UK Association of Industrial Lasers (AIUL) at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire a great opportunity to meet and listen to experts in the field of laser and digital manufacturing.

On the occasion, Prof. Alireza Mousavi and researcher Hang Geng gave a presentation on “Defect Assessment and Cost Modelling in Laser Manufacturing”, which concerns real-time defect prediction and cost evaluation in large-scale and complex laser manufacturing. The method borrows principles from the event tracking of interrelated causal events and deploys clustering methods to automatically measure the relevance and contribution made by each input event data on system outputs. The latter has been applied in iQonic Work Package 6 (WP6) research activities aiming at straightening the theoretical and the practical foundation for the engineering of knowledge and data in modern and complex systems.


In the last three years, iQonic partners have been working on the data acquisition, collection, and processing of the optoelectronic production line, both fabrication, and assembly. This workshop supplies Brunel with the chance to share the project solution to defect prediction and cost evaluation of laser manufacturing aiming notably at building not only an autonomous adaptive engine but an overall financial cost model for real-time inspection, control, and decision support of optoelectronic production at the engineering level.

This is also the main purpose of WP6, Process and Artificial Intelligence Implementation, which will simultaneously deal with 1) developing predictive models to forecast the deterioration of machinery conditions; 2) providing cost models to support the decision of resource deployment; and 3) building user interfaces with MES and other higher-level management systems to visualize the solutions of iQonic partners.




More informatio: The UK Association of Industrial Lasers (AIUL) was established in 1995 as an independent, non-profit making organization run by and for laser users involved in activities including manufacturing, healthcare, academic and industrial research; as well as suppliers of laser-related products and services.
