A global manufacturer seeks to improve production yield at polymer mixing process.
The company’s polymer mixing process was producing output of inconsistent quality, with yields sometimes dipping as low as 50%.
The scrapping of poor batches created huge costs and was crippling production capacity.
Dynamic product specification in addition to variation in a range of production parameters causing the trouble.
Hitachi's advanced analytics platform helped in integrating a wide range of production data and sensors data to visualize, analyze and diagnose the polymer mixing process.
Discovered the critical factors and optimal process parameters through correlation, visual analysis, and optimization algorithms.
Provided a deep process insight, enabling daily decision support and continuous improvement.
