Especially in the vehicle industry, a change from the linear economic model towards a circular economy is necessary. A prerequisite for a circular economy is efficient closed-loop production. In this context, the junior research group considers the circular production from material input to the finished product or to recycling. The focus is on restoring the quality of the returned product, which is particularly critical for economic success. This requires intelligent quality control loops that regulate the remanufacturing processes on the basis of the required quality characteristics.
This challenge is also a research topic within the framework of the InnovationCampus Future Mobility, which will fund the junior research group "Dynamic quality control for the sustainable production of mobility solutions" starting in July.
