Abstract [en]

Monitoring is a significant issue for finishing the assembly interfaces of large-scale components before final assembly. Acquisition and supervision of the pivotal data is essential to ensure the security and reliability for machining the large and complicated components with high-value. This process is generally cumbersome and time-consuming because there are various types of data coming from different components and sensors. The problem becomes more serious when considering the whole shop floor. Recently, MTConnect has been proven to be an effective method to realize standardized data collection and monitoring process. However, MTConnect is still under development and cannot cover the whole finishing process such as on-machining measuring (OMM) and fixturing. To address the issue, an MTConnect compliant method with extended data models is proposed in this paper to implement a standardized monitoring system. Firstly, a finishing system for the assembly interfaces is introduced, including the framework, workflow and key procedures and data. Then extended MTConnect data models are proposed to represent the finishing system including on-machine touch-trigger probe and sensor-based intelligent fixturing related information. Based on the extended MTConnect data models, a web-based monitoring system is developed for data collection and monitoring by combining an MTConnect agent and an OPC adapter. The proposed approach is validated by collecting and monitoring the key process data using an airplane vertical tail as an application. The advantages of using MTConnect would be more significant when extended to the entire factory and implemented in cloud manufacturing in the future.
