Use data to improve your OEE
Overall Equipment Effectiveness is calculated through the availability, performance, and quality of your production. Availability is affected when unplanned downtime occurs. By taking advantage of your historical data, predictive maintenance can help significantly improve availability, by creating warnings and transparency to when an asset can be proactively maintained. Performance can be affected if planning is not right, and can be improved by the help of better forecasting models. Quality is impacted by the process you use to manufacture and this can be significantly improved by monitoring the process in real-time with machine learning.
Reduce unplanned downtime
By utilizing the possibilities within predictive maintenance, you can improve equipment availability, equipment safety and reliability, while reducing mean-time-between-failure and mean-time-to-repair.
Reduce costs on discarded products
By having insight into equipment's remaining useful life and probability of function failure, you can discard less batches due to unplanned downtime when having products with narrow control limits.
Reduce costs on maintenance
With predictive maintenance, machines are maintained when necessary, reducing the total cost of maintenance both in time and materials.
Improve customer satisfaction
With a more reliable equipment, you can get predictable delivery to customers, and be able to deliver the given order right-on-time!
Automate quality inspection
By using image recognition and machine learning, you can automatically inspect whether your products are produced in the right quality. E.g. whether it is the right colour or the right angle.
Make efficient production planning
Plan your production based on historical data from your company. This way you get input on the quantity of raw material to order, the number of employees required, and utilization of your production lines.
Detect breakdowns before they occur and improve uptime
Get health-status in real-time from your critical components, and handle possible breakdowns, before they delay your production. All manufacturing companies rely on assets such as bearings and electric motors or more complex assets such as processing machines and conveyor belts. They are key for your production to run and we can help keep them running. By using operational data from the asset, vibration sensors or edge computers with cameras we can help you monitor and get you started with predictive maintenance. Predictive maintenance is about being proactive about maintenance in your production and catching failures before they happen. This helps you digitize your maintenance and make it data driven which helps your maintenance crew better plan services as they have more information to work with. It does not matter where you are on this journey as we help companies in all stages including selecting the right sensors, how to store and process data, and creating machine learning models for predictive maintenance.
Detect defective products earlier and reduce operational costs
Delivering your products in the right quality to your customers is one of the key drives to a successful business. By installing sensors or small cameras in the manufacturing processes, it is possible to have an automatic quality control that can help detect defective products due to unwanted process parameters. It can help your quality to monitor the manufacturing process in key areas to give you insight into key metrics such as temperatures or speed. This will make it easier for you to perform quality assurance and with the data logged you can start connecting good quality with the right set of parameters for production. Leading to better quality and lower operational costs in your production.
Start your Machine Learning Journey and optimize your business!
Do not worry we will do it together with you.
Your Machine Learning journey starts by getting a feeling of Right Data over Big Data, Machine Learning and statistical concept. Throughout the AI Camp you will learn how to use these concepts to improve your business. Together we will select a potential pilot project and do a readiness assessment to ensure its feasibility in your company and on your data.
Want to know more? Read more on our AI Camp page.
A good way to learn as an organization is to try. A pilot project will give you the opportunity to see what machine learning can do in your company. Together we analyze data, investigate possible solutions, and create a tailored prototype for your company. We develop the solution in close collaboration with you, so we ensure that it fits your needs, people, and company. The end of a good pilot project is to test the model in production to see that it works. To read more about some of our pilot projects check out our customer cases.
A successful pilot project will naturally lead to an implementation and integration of the solution into your company. It is about take the prototype to production. You will now have a reliable, consistent, and efficient production where you can use data to make decisions. You are capable of operating the solution, and we leave you to do what you do best.
“The AI Camp gave us insight into what Machine Learning is, and how it can create value. During the process we gained the knowlegde required to begin a machine learning project in our company.”
Jens Rishøj SkovKredsløb A/S
“We had high expectations for the AI camp, including learning about machine learning and a common understanding of an optimization task that affects several heat production plants in Copenhagen, in order to get cheap district heating for our customers. The AI camp proved that there is a clear opportunity for optimization and we are confident in the results of the analysis. Neurospace has been quite committed, and has been good at asking about correlations, in order to get an understanding of the problem. CTR is ready to continue working with the pilot project, as our goals with the AI Camp have been fully met.”
Michal Brahm ThomsenCTR I/S
“The AI Camp concept fits perfectly into our innovation agenda, where we need new technology and people to work together. In the process, we have become wiser about optimizations in production and gained an understanding of how machine learning can solve these in collaboration with our employees. The AI Camp process solves this perfectly. We are extremely satisfied and achieved all our goals with the AI Camp.”
Martin JørgensenDanish Crown A/S
“We have been introduced to the new world of machine learning by Neurospace. Their AI Camp provides a good basic understanding of machine learning and data. At Nordic Sugar Nakskov, we have gained an understanding of why it is important to examine correlations systematically instead of limiting the usage of sensors and measurements based on gut feelings.”
