Enabling Machine Learning-Based Fault Detection in an Industrial Medical Device Assembly Process

PhD defence, Friday 5 April 2024, Fatemeh Kakavandi

Fatemeh Kakavandi

During her PhD studies, Fatemeh Kakavandi conducted research on the utilization of emerging technologies, including Digital Twins and Machine Learning (ML), in Industrial Medical Device Assembly Processes. Her focus was on exploring how these concepts could offer insights into process quality and identify abnormal situations. Fatemeh Kakavandi investigated the challenges associated with the deployment of ML models in industrial settings, such as the issues of interpretability and the availability of sufficient labeled data. She developed solutions to address these challenges, and her research findings provide valuable insights into the development of ML-based fault detection models for industrial use cases with specific challenges.

The PhD study was completed at: Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Faculty of Technical Sciences, Aarhus University.
