Content: Large scale manufacturing systems are often run with constant process parameters although continuous and abrupt disturbances influence the process. To reduce quality variations and scrap, a closed-loop control of the process variables becomes indispensable. In this thesis, a modeling and control framework for multistage manufacturing
systems is developed, in which the systems are subject to abrupt faults, such as component defects, and continuous disturbances. In this context, three main topics are considered: the development of a modeling framework, the design of robust distributed controllers, and the application of both to the models of a real hot stamping line. The focus of all topics is on the control of the product properties considering the available knowledge of faults and disturbances.
