Using AI to Optimize IoT Data in Quality Control for a Global Heavy Vehicle Manufacturer

Using AI to Optimize IoT Data in Quality Control for a Global Heavy Vehicle Manufacturer

Quality control is a critical function in automobile manufacturing. More so when you are manufacturing premium heavy automobiles like buses and trucks for a global market. Like most digitally advanced manufacturers, our client invests significantly in next-gen technologies like robotics and IoT to minimize faults in production line. But with the sensors and connected devices spitting out complex and huge volumes of data, quality control becomes a data and analytics problem in no time.

Challenges:

  • Client sought a proactive & quick system to avoid the scrap in production line
  • Speed up the current manual inspection process in QC
  • Streamline data collection process as the data volume is huge
  • Provide operating limits for the newly identified parameters that define the quality
  • Identify the pattern of more than one parameter causing the faulty crankshaft

Our Solution:

Leveraging our experience in implementing AI for manufacturing Quality Control, we came up with the right solution.

  • Set up the environment in the Microsoft Azure with additional
    components of Azure ML, Blob storage and Data lake
  • Created natural threshold to monitor abnormality
  • Built an early warning predictive model
  • Sourced data from IoT devices fitted on the machines in production line

Business Benefits:

  • 25% reduction in the scrap rate achieved through the AI/ML Patterns
  • The scalable ML model was able to save the Inspection time and effort
    by more than 60%
  • It also brought about a 70% reduction in the fault rates
  • Made the inspection process smoother through automatic alerts if
    parameters values crossing the limits
