The manufacturing of structural parts made from carbon fiber composite materials is a complex process that requires extended quality control. To facilitate better decisions about the mechanical properties of the part and, consequently, the need for re-work, a manufacturing database is proposed that creates a digital twin of the part as manufactured. The main contribution of the paper is to highlight how to merge incoming sensor data into the database and how to use these data to determine the margin of safety for the part. This is demonstrated on the example of an ADMP (automated dry material placement) process during the manufacturing of a section of an aircraft wing lower cover.
