Daniel Meurer stud­ies elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing with field automat­ing and dri­ve engi­neer­ing at the FH Aachen. For the real­iza­tion of his prac­tice project and the fol­low­ing bach­e­lor the­sis he choos­es the com­pa­ny Quality Automation. A sub­ject was quick­ly found: „Resistant Auto-ID sys­tem for prod­uct track­ing“. By using that sys­tem dif­fer­ent kinds of mate­r­i­al media of an exist­ing plant should be marked. The marks should con­tain the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­bers of the mate­r­i­al media and should serve for the clas­si­fi­ca­tion of the process data. 

The work­piece hold­ers are sub­ject to dif­fi­cult oper­at­ing con­di­tions like high tem­per­a­tures, acids and lac­quer­ing. The job was to devel­op a mark­ing sys­tem that resists such con­di­tions. The real­iza­tion should be per­formed exem­plar­i­ly from the tak­ing of the code to the eval­u­a­tion in an SPS.. Following the col­lo­qui­um tak­ing place in the room for train­ing course at QA the exam­in­ing pro­fes­sor Ulrich Hoffmann (FH-Aachen) and the co-exam­in­er Friedhelm Steffens (QA) quick­ly find out that the per­for­mance should be eval­u­at­ed with the top grade very good (1,0). The com­pa­ny Quality Automation com­pli­ments Mr. Meurer on the passed exam and looks for­ward to a pos­si­ble coop­er­a­tion in case of a mas­ter thesis.
