In my research, we study the painting process in Volvo Trucks' cab factory in Umeå. For this process, I want to collect data that describe the process as well as data that describe the resulting quality outcome.
Based on these data, I will develop methods for constructing cabin-specific explanatory variables as well as response variables.
When I have these cabin-specific variables, I want to use them to identify which process parameters have the largest influence on the quality of the painting.
When this is done, I want to develop an automatic alarm system that identifies an increased risk of quality problems, and a system for root cause analysis that identifies probable causes and proposes corrective measures.
