Germany is recognized as a country with excellent manufacturing know-how. It is capable of producing complex products fulfilling the highest quality standards. Advances are continuously being made in production control to maintain these high standards. However, the term “quality” cannot always be accurately defined, especially in cases where influencing factors are not fully understood or subjective quality aspects need to be taken into account.
The Department of Lightweight Construction Technologies at Fraunhofer IPA develops solutions for the acquisition and documentation of quality data that are specially tailored to customer requirements.
