Quality Whisperer – Self-learning AI Improves Production Quality in Complex Variant Processing
Monday, May 11, 2020
ZF plant Saarbrücken manufactures around 11,000 transmissions per day with a large number of variants. An AI project was started to get reliable and fast results on root cause discovery. Speed is important because production runs 24 / 7. The target is to reduce waste in certain manufacturing domains by 20%. Key success factor is fast detection within the production chain by AI. Complex root-cause findings can be reduced from several days to hours. Self-learning AI solution Predictive Intelligence from IS Predict was used to analyze complex data from production, assembly + quality and to realize transparency on disturbing factors.
