The overall aim of the research is to develop simulation software for process control of complex parts. Measurement method presented provides information about methods to control complex components and enables during the design stage the setting-up of establishment of adequate measurement strategy.

Basically, the measurement was done on a model rotor blade using 3D animation files, in inverse kinematics module (IK).

Overall modeling program described enables fast intervention on data to modify at will the constructive values ​​for the model considered.

Time duration for testing, probing  and homologation is estimated at 60 working days.
1e. What is the cost needed for testing?Care este costul necesar pentru testare?
Costs of software product (research, design, validation) are estimated at Euro 2500. Costs related to testing, probing and homologation of functional model are estimated to be 1400 Euro.

SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development

SECŢIUNEA 2: Stadiul actual de dezvoltare



To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )În ce măsură dispune echipa de resursele necesare pentru a asigura fabricarea noului produs? (Cercetători, resurse umane, hardware, etc.)
University of Craiova has the resources required to ensure the manufacturing of the new software product (research, human resources, hardware, etc.).
It has management experience in scientific research performance, both fundamental and applied research in all areas, and, consulting and expertise.
The research team can complete the project with proposed parameters, with appropriate funding, within deadline. Also, the research team includes experts recognized nationally and internationally, with significant results in the software, validated by publications and research skills in all directions expected


What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?Care sunt aspectele tehnice ce trebuie abordate pentru lansarea în fabricaţie, dacă sunt necesare?
For software implementation in practice are required the next steps:
- Development of design concept and requirements;
- Model building;
- Model checking and validation (validation of model assumptions, comparing model sizes of input / output with the real system);
- Simulation to study, under specific conditions, the virtual system’s behavior. The results are used to obtain a clear picture of the system, based on which to make different decisions.
Simulation steps: formulating the problem, setting objectives, concept design, verification, validation, experimental design, product use and analysis, report preparation, implementation.Also, during the implementation stage are completed the installation & operating instructions for software product, as well as training decision makers.


What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?Ce resurse tehnice suplimentare sunt necesare pentru fabricarea acestui nou produs?
 Logistics systems for creating and implementing a software product can be easily analyzed using a simulation tool, if the instrument provides the necessary elements to create a model. For product information described these elements are:
- Modules;
- Objects.
A model is created in several steps:
- placing modules in the program window;
- Editing the modules (s);
- connecting modules;
- define the simulation parameters;
- operation of simulation;
- results  analysis (results, statistics)To implement modules in the software structure further research is needed by firms specializing in these areas.

Detailed commentComentariu detaliat


There are a variety of market software products that can be used in different phases of design and evaluation process to measure complex parts.

Solidworks is a solid based on Parasolid Modeler and parameters used to create models and assemblies. Parameters refer to constraints whose values ​​determine the shape or geometry give the assembly model.

Matlab – Simulink is a simulation tool based on Newton-Euler equations, modeling structure is by definition dynamic link parameters of each element. The development environment is through Simulink blocks that represent stucturii mechanical components. Environment also allows the introduction of actuators and sensors, which makes the model inputs and outputs.

3D scan data collected can be turned into a cloud of points used for:
- Realization of a 3D model;
- Rapid prototyping after being prepared in STL format;
- Inspection of products to be compared with existing CAD model and used to create a graph of error.

The selection of appropriate methods and modeling software system correct and concise allow an accurate simulation the errors are minimal.

SECTION 4: Overall Assessment

SECŢIUNEA 4: Evaluare generală



What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?Care este evaluarea generală a fezabilităţii tehnice pentru rezultatul CD?
The practice of measuring complex parts based on the digital prototype – DMU: Digital Mock-Up products will be fully measured in 3D solid modeling technique and the whole measurement process will be simulated in assembly in the digital environment. Extent of the economic effects generated by the new practice are:
. elimination of physical prototype;
. reduce manufacturing costs;
. increase product quality;
. reduce product release cycle market.Digital prototyping techniques combined with Internet communication tools allow design team members to access current, complete and correct product relative to the definition, at any time and from anywhere.

It fits perfectly with the trend of globalization of engineering efforts and the integration of suppliers, supply and service, from the early stages of new product design.

Assumed risks (technical, financial) related to product design and the mathematical modeling of informatics for management decision-making activities with the highest risk in intelligent robotic systems. specifically refers to the following types:
- Risks that may arise during design;
- Risks that may occur during the execution of the product (technological risk, cost overrun risk, the risk of subcontractors);
- Risks that may occur during operation of the product (the possibility of changing the value of Euro area changing economic circumstances, major legislative changes).

In conclusion, technically, the project can be considered with low risk .
