Sensor manufacturer uses a dedicated internal team to guide its industrial analytics partner to reduce production waste by 30%

November 15, 2018 | Case Study

A sensor manufacturer producing pressure sensors for high-temperature pressure applications like inside jet engines was experiencing losses during production. During quality testing, the facility identified defects in its sensors that it suspected could've arisen from poor inspection by its silicon suppliers. Interested in identifying the root cause earlier in the process to avoid wastage of its production resources, the facility decided to delegate a team that was tasked with analyzing information from a variety of sources, such as the supplier inspection data to records related to internal production. However, due to the scale of the data, the team faced barriers to processing it and went looking for external stakeholders.
