Abstract

In manufacturing industries, process variation is known to be a major source of poor quality. As such, process monitoring and diagnosis is critical towards continuous quality improvement. This becomes more challenging when involving two or more correlated variables (multivariate). Process monitoring refers to the identification of process status either it is running within a statistically in-control or out-of-control condition, whereas process diagnosis refers to the identification of the source variables of out-of-control process. The traditional statistical process control (SPC) charting schemes are known to be effective in monitoring aspect. Nevertheless, they are lack of diagnosis. In recent years, the artificial neural network (ANN) based pattern recognition schemes have been developed for solving this issue. The existing schemes are mainly designed for dealing with fully completed process data streams. In practice, however, there are cases that observation data are incomplete due to measurement error. In this research, an ensemble (combined) ANN model pattern recognizer will be investigated for recognizing data streams process. Each model consists of different input representation, namely, raw data and statistical features. The raw data of representation generate by manufacturing industry as a real data. The proposed ensemble ANN scheme would provide better perspective in this research area.
