Data Analytics (AI and ML)
For over 20 years Sandalwood has been implementing plant floor data collection systems to better inform our customers and drive better decisions in their manufacturing facilities. As data collection capabilities have increased there is an ever-increasing need to make sense of all the data available to the users so they can make smarter and quicker decisions. By leveraging data analysis tools including Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, the users now have more capabilities available to them than ever before. These tools can provide insights, eliminate guesswork, and quickly turn raw data into actionable information thus keeping your business competitive.
One example is around unplanned downtime. Unplanned downtime is one of the biggest challenges a manufacturer can face as it is costly, frustrating, and has been historically unpredictable. By applying analytics to your machine data, you now have the opportunity to make the move from preventative to predictive maintenance, by making the unpredictable, predictable. Predictive maintenance provides cost savings as you only spend resources on maintenance when necessary and it decreases unnecessary downtime and part or tooling replacements.
