A Slovenian steel-fabricator in conjunction with local research centers developed a quality control system for an architectural sandwich panel production line. Previous quality inspections took place through destructive testing a couple of times a day. This is not an efficient or accurate method of control, and often errors our found too late, sometimes after the product is shipped to the field.
