Improving Availability

DataProphet PRESCRIBE reduces unplanned halts in production due to scrap rate increase, quality troubleshooting and setpoint adjustments, and increase changeover speed by guiding the process back into its most effective state through the use of prescriptive analytics.

Improving Performance

DataProphet’s Expert Execution System is able to optimize the production rate by discovering the most productive line state, and prescribing small and regular process parameter changes in order to maintain this high throughput/low variability performance level.

Improving Quality

DataProphet PRESCRIBE, through prescriptive changes to process parameters, is able to avoid downstream quality issues and scrap, and reduce end product variability. By doing so, it reduces most of the costly events on the production line and improves the overall quality of products.

Traceability

Our Expert Execution System provides improved levels of traceability and supports faster inspection against multiple possible defect types, such as spikes, blisters, cracks, and scratches.

The production of hollow glass is a challenging process that operates at high speed. Interruption for maintenance and troubleshooting can be very costly and process deviation can generate large amounts of scrap before corrective action is implemented.

The process is composed of several steps with many interactions that require a high level of expertise to operate. Despite many iterative recipe adjustments, optimal process performance is hard to maintain.

By ingesting historical process data and related quality data, DataProphet PRESCRIBE is able to discover the optimal recipe across the different substeps, and deliver optimal ranges for key controllable parameters.

DataProphet PRESCRIBE is an Enterprise-ready AI-driven Expert Execution Systems (EES) that analyzes relationships across multi-step processes to provide operators and machines with pre-emptive process control changes to reduce surface defects or physical variation across glass products.
