Greater manufacturing efficiency: it’s the golden egg we’re all looking for. But it’s getting increasingly hard to find. The solution could be smarter automation, which involves lots and lots of data (‘big data’) and data collection and data-driven modelling. The smart machine then uses the models to automatically adjust its own behaviour (i.e. machine learning).
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.
