Mission: To improve use of process monitoring and control methods for both industry and commerce and to help companies introduce advanced techniques via workshops and visits..

Tasks: A manufacturing process from raw materials to finished products can be modelled by simulation. SPC and DoE can be used for inspection and improvements. WP3 is preparing a template, using these tools, to apply to a wide variety of manufacturing contexts. It will be useful for short (half-hour) demonstrations for works visits up to workshops of several days. It will include competitive games. Contributions invited.
