Multimodal Spectroscopy: Production Workhorse

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).

About the Author

Rudolf Kessler

“The enjoyment of experimenting and lateral thinking is the essence of science,” says Rudolf Kessler, a professor of Chemistry at Reutlingen University and head of the Steinbeis Technology Transfer Center in Germany. After completing his PhD in spectroscopy, and following several years working in a think tank at Mercedes Benz, he developed a passion for process analytical technology (PAT). “I believe process analysis using spectroscopy is a holistic approach to solving tomorrow’s manufacturing challenges. And I’m privileged to be given the opportunity to think out of the box (and get paid for it!) to help solve the process challenges of developing smart materials in smart factories, using smart sensors to produce smart products... for smart people.”
