The discussion about ‘Artificial Intelligence’ (AI) in manufacturing is now gaining momentum. This is mainly due to the availability of greater processing power and increasing volumes of data (the ‘sensorisation’ of the industry). A key factor that will help manufacturers to gain the maximum benefit from these recent advances is the use of adaptive algorithms.
Reliable, safe and high-quality manufacturing is the key for operational excellence. Manufacturers need to safely predict problems in their manufacturing processes to prevent production stops or quality losses.
In this context, Artificial Intelligence is a key technology offering advanced solutions for predictive maintenance and quality in automotive manufacturing. Large amounts of data need to be analyzed by data analytics methods and capable AI Edge controllers with smart sensing devices – in real time, locally where the data is generated.
Operators are informed about the current manufacturing status and will be informed about future issues,so that predictive maintenance can avoid production stops and companies can retain their product quality.
Strategic predictive maintenance therefore helps to improve manufacturing processes.
