Industry 4.0 stands for the digitalisation of production, and digitalisation means the increasing use of networked digital technologies in our society.
In fibre composite lightweight construction and adaptive systems, digitalisation is the key element in the holistic conjunction of development, production, operation, and further processing. Therefore, our institute has established a strategic field that develops AI-based methods for intelligent and statistical evaluation of simulation and measurement data. This serves to identify new correlations and reveals potentials for increasing efficiency. With the insights gained, the knowledge database in our institute keeps continuously growing.
This strategic field sustainably supports efficient system lightweight construction:
The effects on production are shortened cycle times, high reproducibility, efficient energy and resources management as well as detailed and automated documentation. Moreover, this strategic field enables the qualification and certification of future technologies.
