Increasing solar cell efficiency and reducing cost are key drivers to compete in today's challenging market situation. Multiple experiments with new process technologies incorporating innovative materials are required to understand parameter influences and relationships on the cells. These experiments need to be performed on machinery and equipment nearly identical to the real production line, involving state-of-the-art sensors and control algorithms. However, control of experiments demands for more flexibility than required in productive environments. To support research in managing and executing experiments Fraunhofer IPA developed a lean software solution focusing on simplicity and efficiency for laboratories and small production lines. It is designed to support configurable experiment runs with highly flexible process parameter settings and retrieving machine reports in a central repository.
