Lithium Battery Projects
• BYD, world’s Top-2 electric car manufacturer, with Phase 1
(Logics for MES/Level 2, etc., 2015-2016), Phase 2
(Model-based Level 2 System integrated with MES, 2017-2020) &
Phase 3 (Knife quality detection system, 2017-2020). In Phase
1, highly accurate models for defect warning system of BYD
Lithium-ion battery manufacturing were established, with 85%
prediction records within allowed error range guaranteed in
the contract, while 98-100% was actually achieved! Six Sigma
was integrated to increase model accuracy. In Phase 2 & 3,
Software and Hardware of Defect Warning System was developed.
Soft Sensing was employed when direct measurement is hard or
expensive, where data were extracted from MES and
online-detecting systems. During the work, the cutters’
management system was also developed.
• Tesla Consulting in Reno (Gigafactory) & Fremont (CA)
Center). Completed Lithium-ion Battery electrode material
slitting modeling consulting (Fremont, CA) and for its
Gigaplant modeling group and on field systems (all in Reno,
A list of consulting projects
for various lithium battery manufacturing companies were also
done, such as those in next sections.
We have hosted
2018 Shenzhen (Top-4 Chinese city) Quality Month’s afternoon
lecture on AI-based Defect Warring System.

Level 2 System and
Mill software projects, such as
those on Level 2 model and roll pass design, are described in
more detail in the
Level 2 Model Project Series,
Related Projects, and Metal
Recent Publications, and so on.
Plate/Steckle Mill Level 2 was jointly developed by
Metal Pass and one of its partners. Metal Pass, with high
expertise on rolling process models, develops mission-critical
functions such as Level 2
model, while certain less technology-intensive sections, such as
data collection and the interface with Level 1 and Level 3,
etc., are developed by the partner. The
Strip Mill Level 2 is the version developed by those Metal
Pass experts who have previously developed and supported a
similar Level 2 system for many years in US steel mills. The
Steel Wire Rod Mill Level 2 was firstly customized based on several Level 2 packages
developed by Metal Pass experts for various steel mill
sectors EAF, LMF and Caster, and then extended to add mill
process and product models. The
Mill Software and Systems consists of a collection of
miscellaneous mill software packages including Roll pass
software Packages, Level 2 Packages and Support Programs,
Level 3 Models, Industrial Automation System Packages and
General Engineering Software Packages, etc.
