Creating an Insights-Driven Factory Floor

Manufacturers today need to fight against shrinking profit margins while transforming established processes to become more data-driven. The good news is that these changes do not need big investment, and the benefits they bring can not only cut costs, but also increase productivity, streamline operations and enhance quality.

Fero Labs, using Intel® hardware, has developed a cloud-based machine learning (ML) solution designed to be quick and easy to implement while enabling manufacturers to get maximum value from their data. Its algorithms use current and historic data to provide factory decision makers with dashboards that display the latest activity and provide probabilistic predictions about what might happen next. This added insight, combined with the expertise of managers and engineers, helps uncover opportunities and possible issues sooner and ensures action can be taken proactively.
