Interfacing Quantitative NDE with Computer Algorithms for Automated Statistical Process Control
In the Factory of the Future (FOF), production will be unified under a system of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM). Automatic computer-integrated control of processes, detection of errors, and determination of corrective action will be necessary because of the proposed level of manpower in the FOFL[1,2]. Under these circumstances, a process which might go out of control and remain that way would be highly detrimental. Very rapid Statistical Process Control (SPC) will provide definitive warnings of out-of-control conditions.
