Expertise Digital Transformation Data-driven Optimization

Data-driven Optimization

Manufacturing companies are sitting on a massive amount of data generated during the production process. Leveraging this data is hard, but worth it. Companies who invest smartly in the skills, technology and processes necessary to unlock their data will reach the next level of optimization, with tangible improvements in productivity, energy efficiency, quality & safety.


Want to run smarter operations? You can start by doing more with the data you collect. Less than 20% of the data generated by industrial companies is used. Even less is analyzed, that means that up to 80% of data is not being properly leveraged for analytics and decision making. We are changing that.


Current challenges

Many manufacturing companies face the challenge of not having accurate, up-to-date information about their operational processes. There’s a lot of information out there, but it doesn’t always reach the people who can use it effectively. This issue makes it hard to understand important factors that affect outcomes like product quality or energy use.

Often, this lack of clear information leads to a trial-and-error approach instead of using data-driven strategies, causing unpredictable and inefficient processes. And depending too heavily on human experience, without the support of data, can hinder consistent optimization.

In light of new regulations such as CSRD and NIS2, there is an increased need for clear and controllable production processes in manufacturing. Maintaining visibility at all times is essential to meet these requirements.


Unlock data:
bring clarity

To become data-driven, the first step is to unlock the available data. Invest in the collection, storage & processing of data, as it’s often locked in various systems, goes nowhere and is rarely analyzed or used to detect patterns.

Create insight:
understand why

Interpret the data and try to understand why certain things happen. By looking at the data, you can gain an additional set of objective insights.

take informed action

Based on the additional insights, you can take certain actions to optimize the production process. Go the extra mile with state-of-the-art AI techniques for real-time process optimization.
