The Role of Visualization in Industrial Production
2020-10-30T14:00:00Z – 2020-10-30T15:30:00Z
Industrial production is a manifold and complex process holding several substeps from product concept over prototyping to manufacturing and quality management. Here, visualization approaches can be applied in nearly each step in order to increase the quality of decision making processes. In this context, each step of the process contributes unique requirements for visualizations to be applicable. This holds several problems: first, there is no standardization for visualizations in industrial production. Second, companies and visualization researchers can follow different aims which can make it hard to build a functional collaboration and third, there is no mechanism that keeps track of already invested or unsolved problems in visualization in industrial production. In this application spotlight we aim to shed a light on the application of industrial production when concerning visualization tasks. We aim to bring together different actors in visualization of industrial production, such as visualization researchers, research institutes and company fellows. We aim to structure our application spotlight along the industrial production pipeline and highlight the challenges when considering visualization approaches. Furthermore, the spotlight aims to discuss the open problems and solved tasked on the boundary between visualization research and industrial production. Here, the goal is to generate an overview over the role of visualization in industrial production, generate access for visualization researchers to this unique application and build a first step in creating a taxonomy of visualizations in industrial production.
