On the propagation of quality requirements for mechanical assemblies in industrial manufacturing

A frequent challenge encountered by manufacturers of mechanical assemblies consists of the definition of quality criteria for the assembly lines of the subcomponents which are mounted into the final product. The rollout of Industry 4.0 standards paves the way for the usage of data-driven, intelligent approaches towards this goal. In this work, we investigate such … Read more

Predicting the vibroacoustic quality of steering gears

In the daily operations of ThyssenKrupp Presta AG, ball nut assemblies (BNA) undergo a vibroacoustical quality test and are binary classified based on their order spectra. In this work we formulate a multiple change point problem and derive optimal quality intervals and thresholds for the order spectra that minimize the number of incorrectly classified BNA. … Read more
