Transforming the Shop Floor: A No BS Look at Data Science in Manufacturing

The concept of digital transformation isn’t new to manufacturers. In fact, it’s probably something you’ve been hearing and thinking about for some time as part of Industry 4.0 initiatives. A huge part of that transformation involves maximizing the value of your datamaking it accessible, using it to predict future outcomes & basing key process decisions on those predictions.

Accessibility may not seem all that intimidatingmost manufacturers have collected and stored data for specialized purposes. On the other hand, if you’re like many of your peers, data science and predictive analytics may seem farfetched, or even unattainable.

The truth is, they don’t have to be. Manufacturers who are already leaning on data science aren’t throwing out their playbooks completelythey’re just using all the existing information at their fingertips to reimagine them so they can compete well into the future. The result? These early adopters are expecting close to double the ROI of competitors with less developed data science initiatives in the next 2 to 3 years.

Join us on LinkedIn Live on Thursday, October 28th at 10am ET to learn how you can lead a similar transformationnot by starting from scratch, but by getting more from what you already have. By walking through a series of real-world examples that show how your data and machine learning can be used to make smarter process decisions, you’ll leave with concrete takeaways that’ll help you fulfill the promise of data and analytics within your organization by lowering costs, creating efficiencies, and better serving your customers.

High-Level Agenda

Join our Head of Data Science, Martin Schmitz, for an introduction to the event and brief overview of the day’s sessions.

Randy LeBlanc, Vice President of Customer Success

In the day’s first session, you’ll see how allowing machines to process visual inputs can help you gather real-time data from a video feed, analyze people’s actions within it, and detect inconsistencies against pre-defined standards.

Scott Genzer, Data Scientist

In this session, we’ll demonstrate how you can use image analysis tools to create a more efficient process by transforming a standard .mp4 video file of an analog pressure gauge into precise, digitized, and timestamp-indexed data table.

Borja Comendeiro López, Head EMEA/APAC Presales

This session will show you how you can use data science to move from preventive to predictive maintenance by using RapidMiner to conduct anomaly detection on real-time data. Production teams that successfully make this shift are able to mitigate unplanned downtime while ensuring that they’re not replacing parts that are still perfectly usable.

David Arnu, Lead Data Scientist

In this session, you’ll learn how RapidMiner can help you continuously monitor the shop floor by accessing industry-standard data storage programs like OSI-PI and OPC-UA, then make your team aware of important developments in real-time.

Fabian Temme, Data Scientist

In the last session of the day, you’ll learn how data science can help to address challenges in the beer-brewing process. We’ll go through an end-to-end example for Malt Yield Optimization that’s based on a research project we’re working on with some of the world’s most forward-thinking breweries. We’ll cover everything from data preprocessing to modeling, and eventually, how the right model can be deployed in a complex production environment.

Martin Schmitz, our Head of Data Science, will be wrapping up the event with a quick recap and some key takeaways.
