The Section for Manufacturing Engineering at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark has an open position in the field of Improving overall Equipment Efficiency in Silicon Crystal Growth Production with Digital Manufacturing Technologies. Topsil GlobalWafers has a full-scale production facility and all work will address real production challenges.
The Section for Manufacturing Engineering at the Department of Mechanical Engineering performs research based on a multi-disciplinary use of process technology, materials science, solid and fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics in the analysis, modelling and development of manufacturing processes. The research objective of the Section is to promote ‘Precision Manufacturing’ to meet the performance, durability, reliability, size, and cost requirements of modern products.
The PhD project is carried out in the framework of the Horizon2020 Marie-Curie Innovative Training Network DIGIMAN4.0 “DIGItal MANufacturing Technologies for Zero-defect Industry 4.0 Production”. Please look at the project website (www.digiman4-0.mek.dtu.dk/) before reading further. The PhD project is related to the Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position no. 3 of the DIGIMAN4.0 project.
Responsibilities and tasks
The position focuses on research in the area of precision manufacturing engineering and manufacturing digital technologies, with focus on IoT, Big Data analytics, system integration, simulation and autonomous robots. It is the goal for the current PhD project to develop in-depth root-cause analysis and detailed Pareto analysis of failure mode using big data approach to achieve intelligent predictive maintenance.
The project will require the integration and development of necessary manufacturing and digital technologies enabling advancements in the process capability and optimization of pure silicon wafers industrial production.
The PhD project will have the following objectives:
Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.
