Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop an innovative online supervisor system to assist the operators of an industrial manufacturing process in discovering new solutions for improving both the products and the manufacturing process itself. In this paper, we discuss the requirements and practical aspects of building such a system and demonstrate its use and functioning with different types of statistical modelling methods applied for quality monitoring in industrial applications. The two case studies presenting the development work were selected from the steel industry. One case study predicting the profile of a stainless steel strip tested the usability of the tool offline, while the other study predicting the risk of roughness of a steel strip had an online test period. User experiences from a test use period were collected with a system usability scale questionnaire.
