Student Project Assignment | Visualization of Data Analysis

Data Visualization, Analytics, 3D, Artificial Intelligence, charts, C#, WPF in Eindhoven

Why are we looking for you

NTS develops, produces, assembles and tests complex (opto-)mechatronic systems and mechanical modules for large, high-tech machine manufacturers (OEMs). As a first-tier systems supplier, we focus on companies active in markets with high levels of product diversity, low volumes and high complexity, such as the semiconductor, lifesciences and digital printing markets, in which precision, actuation in multiple degrees of freedom and cleanroom manufacturing are paramount.

NTS is involved in the entire life cycle of  mechatronics precision equipment. This includes development, production, and also maintenance. From the moment of shipment of  a system to a customer, typically the data that is collected in the equipment itself will be used for remote monitoring, e.g. over an IoT gateway to the cloud. Also, already during the several stages of development and testing at NTS before shipment to the NTS customer, a large amount of relevant data is generated.

For better understanding of the data, for a better discussion on the data, data visualization is key. NTS wants to keep improving it’s existing framework, which is also using pre-existing libraries. Goal is to make the data available to all types of engineers, rather than having predefined reports.

What will you be doing

The Project Assignment has the following objectives:

  • Create visualizations regarding:
  • -Distributions and trends
  • -Deviations from distributions and trends
  • -Areas of interest, e.g. apply hour glasses
  • -Tree-alike models of budget-decompositions with expected values and actual values, expected ranges and actual ranges.
  • -Commonalities between areas of interest
  • -Extrapolations/predictions
  • Alternative representations for information-intensive views on data
  • Apply on both individual system data and multi-system collective data
  • Apply 3D charting on multidimensional data, e.g. on collective data and re-runs
  • Goal is to make the visualizations highly intuitive for the typical users: system engineers, service engineers, test engineers
  • In addition to pre-programmed charts, allow for self-service options
  • Auto-suggest representations, auto-suggest areas of interest, auto-suggest extrapolations. Here (artificially) intelligent algorithms may be used
  • Make sure that visualizations are highly configurable/reusable

Because you are part of a multidisciplinary project team, the execution location of this project is at our D&E location in Eindhoven. Coaching and supervision is provided from this site.

TimingWe are flexible regarding the start of the project. Soonest start is September 2020, and the project should not start later than March 2021.

What skill do you have

  • The project can be carried out as a graduation project or PD-Eng traineeship.
  • Preferred is a background in Computing Science, but we also encourage people with an education in Mathematics, Physics or Mechatronics with a significant software component to apply.
  • Knowledge of C#/WPF is a plus but not a must.
  • Tailoring the project deliverables towards the requirements of your institute/university is possible.
  • Also the project can be tailored for the execution by multiple students.
  • As an individual person, you are pro-active, eager to learn and a self-starter.
