Meta-modeling for manufacturing processes describes a procedure to create reduced numeric surrogates that describe cause-effect relationships between setting parameters as input and product quality variables as output for manufacturing processes. Within this method, expert knowledge, empiric data and physical process models are transformed such that machine readable, reduced models describe the behavior of the process with sufficient precision. Three phases comprising definition, generation of data and creation of the model are suggested and used iteratively to improve the model until a required model quality is reached. In manufacturing systems, such models allow the generation of starting values for setting parameters based on the manufacturing task and the requested product quality. In-process, such reduced models can be used to determine the operating point and to search for alternative setting parameters in order to optimize the objectives of the manufacturing proc ess, the product quality. This opens up the path to self-optimization of manufacturing processes. The method is explained exemplarily at the gas metal arc welding process.
