Mind - Database
Measurement data in itself is worthless. Only further information and metadata make a measurement meaningful:
- Which specimen was tested?
- Which operating conditions were present? (e.g. temperature, condition, power, current etc.)
- Which materials, chemicals and components were used in/on the specimen?
- Which processes with which parameters were used to produce materials, components and test items?
- Which tools were used for production?
- When was measured on which device and by whom?
- To which project, group/department/organizational unit does a measurement belong?
- Were there comparable measurements?
Mind stores all this information for you and links it to a specific measurement. So you have access to all background details when interpreting measurement results.
- The database is maintained by your employees. Information from existing chemical/material/process databases is exported to Mind.
- Background information is assigned to a test item/measurement (material, test plan etc.). Mind sends all information to an evaluation module (e.g. Batalyse).
- The evaluation module creates the result diagrams.
- The results are automatically stored in the Mind database for your test item.
- Mind provides you with extensive filter/search and comparison functions. e.g. which measurements were performed in the “ChemBat” joint project by the “Applied electrochemistry” working group with the cell chemistry “Lithium sulphur” in the 2019 working year with electrolyte “E1”.
Program modules for complex data analysis (“machine learning”) are being developed on this basis.
Working with Mind:
- Create materials, components, processes and tools. You can define any attributes (for example, temperature, density, date of purchase, …) yourself and assign physical units to them if required. Furthermore, image files and free text can be used for individual descriptions. Mind is independent of a special field and universally applicable!
- Components consist of one or more materials, which have been produced by a process, possibly using tools. One or more components and materials result in a test specimen, which is examined with a specific test plan. The evaluation of the measured data is carried out manually by you or by software such as Batalyse.
- Each measurement can be assigned to a project and an organizational unit that is part of higher hierarchical organizational units.
- Access protection is provided by individual passwords for each employee.
- The user rights to data and results can be defined individually. Projects can only be released for specific users and read/write rights can be granted. In addition, read/write access can be both possible and prohibited for other organizational units in the company.
