ANALYZE & ACTION

Put Big Data to Work for You

Every edge counts in the world of manufacturing. In a highly competitive global market with new industry dynamics, the continuous reduction of marginality pushes manufacturers to rethink their manufacturing operations to increase profitability, quality of products and make customers more satisfied and loyal.

Small changes in productivity equal large gains for the bottom line. The investment to achieve even a one-percent productivity increase and cost savings is relevant in many manufacturing industries – in particular in fast moving consumer goods and foodservice industries.

The ability to monitor asset performance and communicate that data to other systems significantly changes the way these assets can be managed and maintained. The possibility to retrofit older assets (invisible assets) to gather asset performance data and the capability to combine new and old data with analytics-driven insight will give to manufacturers the degree of flexibility and decision-making capability they need to deal with increasing market complexity and demand variability.

Wi-NEXT Predictive and Quality Analytics

Wi-NEXT Predictive and Quality Analytics solution uses advanced algorithms and business intelligence technologies to help manufactures rise to the challenge with better business insight, planning and performance. This big data analysis is changing the way we do business – and impacting the bottom line.

Wi-NEXT Predictive and Quality Analytics includes not only traditional statistical process control (SPC), but also sophisticated algorithms that can help companies to predict where, when and why asset failures are likely to occur as well as flag early identification of poor quality issues.

With Wi-NEXT Predictive and Quality Analytics, manufacturers can better understand asset performance and product quality and they will be able to:

  • Significantly minimize machine downtime
  • Optimize production
  • Predict quality issues (low false-alarm rate)
  • Avoid or minimize costly failures – and help planning/budgeting teams with upcoming event information
  • Prevent warranty claims and increase customer satisfaction
  • Reduce inventory costs associated to stockouts and overstocks
