Abstract

"Hand-held fastening tools are extensively used in manufacturing, especially in aerospace industry. Typically, the process is monitored by the operator and joints are visually inspected after the process is completed. When complex products, such as an aircraft, are considered, fastening process and its inspection can be very time consuming. In addition, no inspection data is typically collected during the process unless a major problem is encountered. Real-time monitoring and verification of the fastening process of joint quality are two important advancements to reduce the manufacturing lead time while ensuring safety and quality"--Abstract, page iv.
