Focus course

Quality control in the production of wood-based materials

The four-day course imparts general normative and material-specific fundamentals for the production and application of wood-based materials. In addition, the course content also focuses on factory production control (FPC) as well as the requirements and verification methods for emissions and the mechanical properties of wood-based materials.

A further focus is directed at the methods of statistical data evaluation as an instrument of quality control. The course is divided into five modules, whereby selected teaching content is supplemented by practical units in the laboratory, testing facility and technical center of the Fraunhofer WKI.

Dates:
23th to 26th November 2020
 

Course location: 
Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research
