The dependence of actual output, specific process cost and operating speed was shown in numerous inquiries. This is the base for the development of an effective process management, which is one target of this project. Based on fuzzy methods a self-adjusting sensor system is to be formed. This will give a new access to an output- and cost-optimised operation of packaging machines.
The second intention is the formulation of a guideline for the configuration of PDA-Systems by allowing for standard interfaces. Besides the elaboration of proposals for the standardisation of PDA-System-Interfaces the development of a standard algorithm for the provision and analysis of the necessary data take centre stage. The target is an objective comparison of single machines and machinery by means of production data. Furthermore the results of this project enable the unobstructed integration of packaging machines (“plug and play”).
For the continuative development of these both projects the following workstep are in progress:
