XITASO employee Richard Nordsieck held a presentation at the ICINCO-Conference in Prague

Augsburg, August 12, 2019; Richard Nordsieck introduced his scientific work within the framework of the research project AIPE to an international audience at the16th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics (ICINCO) in Prague.

From the 29th to the 31st of July, researchers, engineers and users came together at the ICINCO (International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics) to exchange information on current research issues. A plethora of publications from all over the world were presented on the topics of Intelligent Control Systems and Optimisation, Robotics and Automation, Signal Processing, Sensors, System Modelling and Control and Industrial Information Technologies.

XITASO employee Richard Nordsieck, also presented his publication titled “Towards Automated Parameter Optimisation of Machinery by Persisting Expert Knowledge” to the ICINCO attendees.

In the course of his research, and together with the AIPE-Team, he has focussed on the challenges faced when commissioning machines. In particular the correct settings of the huge volume of paramaters dependent on environmental influences, present huge time and cost constraints. A concept has been developed as a solution, within which the settings of the parameters are automated using methods of Artificial Intelligence. With the help of quality forecasting, it should be made possible to optimise the paramater setting and thereby to effectively save costs and time associated with commissioning of manufacturing systems. The 3D-manufacturing process, Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM), serves as a case study for this.

Furthermore a combination of scientific based and learning systems are being researched in order to make adequate forecasts, despite limited data situations. Employed here, amongst others are Learning Classifier Systems, Decision Trees, Support Vector Machines and Artificial Neural Networks.
