Transforming the Shop Floor

Transforming the Shop Floor

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 intimidating—most 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 completely—they’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.

In this session, you’ll learn how you can lead a similar transformation—not 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.

Creating Smarter, More Efficient Processes with Computer Vision, Randy LeBlanc, Vice President of Customer Success

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.

21st Century Data from 20th Century Gauges, 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.

Cutting Through the Noise with Real-Time Scoring, 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.

How the Right Data Science Platform Helps Access ALL Your Available Data, 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.

How Data Science Helps Address Challenges in the Beer-Brewing Process, Fabian Temme, Data Scientist

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.
