Multimodal Spectroscopy: Production Workhorse
Manufacturing is getting smarter; only a cross-discipline approach will ensure the success of tomorrow’s processes
Rudolf Kessler |
The European Commission’s smart manufacturing vision “Manufuture for 2020” and the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) PAT/QbD-platform (Process Analytical Technology, Quality by Design) are both helping to increase interest in the concept of intelligent manufacturing. It is a transdisciplinary technology where process chemists, process engineers, chemometricians and many other technologists must work together. In short, the holistic process analysis component will be the bedrock that supports the production of smart materials in smart factories! Indeed, process analytics by spectroscopy can improve understanding of how the process operates, and can be used to determine potential targets for process improvement by removing waste and increasing efficiency (1).
