Artificial Intelligence in Manufacturing: Case Studies on Predictive Maintenance and Predictive Quality
Mo Abuali, Managing Partner
Isaac Bennett, CIO and Digital Transformation Director
Detroit Manufacturing Systems
A reduction in unplanned downtime or a few percentages of scrap reduction can yield millions of dollars in savings for manufacturers. This compelling value proposition has resulted in significant investment and interest in using predictive maintenance and predictive quality solutions based on artificial intelligence (AI). This presentation will address many of those challenges and present compelling real-world business examples with demonstrated value for rapidly deploying AI in manufacturing. Introduce a methodology including a workshop to define the business and technical problem, a state of the art and end-to-end analysis platform from data collection to the delivery of the health and process information, and lessons learned on how the solution can be maintained and improved over time. The presentation and case studies will shed the light on how manufacturers can transform from a “fail and fix” to a “predict and prevent” zero-downtime and zero-defect operation; keeping in mind cost, time-to-deploy, technology architecture, and scalability.
