CHARMS – Characterization of Machining Systems


  • Machine tool testing need new and easy to use methodologies and tools to identify, monitor and control the machine tool condition
  • Process planning need new and easy to use methodologies and tools in the early phase of product realization for quality assurance and machining system capability utilisation to produce required part


  • Develop new innovative methods for characterisation of machining systems for increased manufacturing performance
  • Integration of machining system capability (MSC) and manufactured part characteristic into a unified framework


  • Development of the MSC principle and concept (MSC theory framework)
  • Adaption of existing measurement instruments and development of usage methodologies for industrial applications.
  • Development of software for usage of MSC data for increased machining system utilization
  • Demonstration of the developed methods, instruments and software for a selected industrial case
