[54] SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR FORMING A COMPOSITE PART
[57] Abstract: In an example, a method for forming a composite part includes, based on a part specification, cutting layers of material in a sequence and positioning the layers to form a stack. For each layer, after positioning the layer and before cutting a next layer in the sequence, the method includes (i) scanning along a length of the layer to determine an image, (ii) determining, based on the image, at least two edges of the layer, (iii) determining, based on the edges, a measured width at locations along the length of the layer, (iv) comparing the measured width at each location to a target width at the location, (v) deciding, based on the comparison, whether to adjust the production process, and (vi) if the decision is to adjust the production process, then adjusting the production process based on the comparison. The part specification specifies the target width at each location.
