With growing consumer expectations and increasingly complex supply chains, digitization is a main driver for today’s discrete manufacturing industry to optimize operations and to stay competitive. A key to disruptive advances is in empowering domain experts to gain important insights from fast growing data.
By analyzing process data from a large foundry with Visplore, complex dependencies were detected that we didn’t find with other software. As a result, our customer’s heat energy was reduced by around 5% and mold wear by around 4%.
Visplore enabled our maintenance department to predict bacterial attacks on a central cooling system. This has increased the average time between bacterial attacks from 19 to 49 days, allowing the plant to operate more economically and stably.
