Technologic information profile

  • Title:
    Bulgarian university is searching for a commercial partner to implement an optimization approach for new, undetermined or non-optimized technologies, which guarantees reaching certain targets
  • Description:
    The proposed optimization approach is used for modelling, optimization and automated design of technological processes, as well as for determination of the properties of the products under different conditions. This is achieved via a specially developed software, which is required to perform the necessary calculations.
    The basis for these calculations can be experimental and simulation research, generalized to adequate regression models and models with artificial neuron networks.
    The software solution depicts the investigated output(s), depending on 2 to 10 input parameters. It is provided with several options, making the solution extremely user-friendly.
    The approach consist of improvement of existing or design of new, non-established technological processes, the parameters of which vary within a range, by which, after an experimental check, benefits are guaranteed achieved through a certain economic effect.
    Objects of research can be:
    - A new non-established technological process or technology, for which a process of designing the processing mode is forthcoming.
    - Non-optimized process, for which better quality indicators (set of indicators) through optimization may be offered or savings of used raw materials or energy are achieved by maintaining the levels of quality parameters.
    - Optimization of simulation Computer Aided Engineering /CAE/ calculations to optimize and achieve a rational technological option.
    The Bulgarian university is looking for market realization of their automated method, which solves specific problems, but when solving the tasks, the assigning company will need to take over part of the assignment in terms of defining the managing and managed parameters, as well as to present the necessary links between them, obtained through simulations or experiment. This is the reason why the university is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
    The assistance from the Bulgarian university experts includes choosing the parameters of the technological process that guarantee results that are relevant to the respective manufacturing company.

More information

  • Plus Value:
    The method is universal as a calculation algorithm and is now applied to materials processing and metallurgy technologies. The ability to improve the complexity of desired properties, the ability to reduce production costs through optimization, the analysis of quality parameters, the choice of rational technological modes give the service its advantage.
    The proposed method offers improvement through applied analysis, control and optimization of technologies, processes and systems, which improvement is characterized by very parametric connectivity and accessibility (internal and external).
    Other advantages include:
    1. The solution is obtained through automated calculations with the help of an author’s software.
    2. The decision gives several alternatives and the decision-maker has the opportunity to choose depending on his/her considerations.
    3. The approach is user-friendly and the big number of parameters do not make it difficult to make a decision.
    4. The efficiency of one or another solution is automatically assessed.
    5. Compromise depends on the combination of criteria and different solutions can be defined for different combinations. The final decision may take account of this choice.
    6. Verifying effective solutions in practice can lead to an innovative solution with a significant effect.
    The main advantage of the approach lies in the possibility of choosing solutions that are slightly less efficient in terms of the ultimate complex of properties but are, by contrast, more preferred in energy saving and environmental terms.

    pppAll interested companies are potential partners for the service. Employers' experts (technologists) are the key decision makers in the process. They will provide the database that is the basis for the study calculations. They will define the boundaries of parameter variation, manage and organize preliminary and final experiments, and finally implement the proposed solution.ppInventor,SME 51-250p
