Altizon implemented its proprietary smart IoT-enabled manufacturing intelligence solution, Datonis MInt to find the sources of the quality degradation problem for the manufacturing company. The IoT solution can process the machine and its historical performance data, and establish a correlation between machine settings and production output. The insights offered by the Datonis MInt gave the manufacturing company’s QA team the ability to monitor critical machine settings parameters, ascertain whether they are in statistical control, and eventually correlate the process and machine data to identify two critical parameters (pressure and tension) that were causing the problem. Based on this insight, a prescriptive quality model was built that aimed to change the machine configuration for every new order. The manufacturing intelligence helped the company in achieving predictable quality goods.
“Right now we have reached the critical point where manufacturers need to either embrace the digital transformation or face the possibility of becoming obsolete,” says Vinay Nathan, co-founder and CEO of Altizon. And this is where Altizon has been able to strike its impact with its Datonis suite of solutions. Altizon’s Datonis is a fully managed IIoT platform that lets the organization securely connect and process IoT data.
It provides the ability to analyze and visualize data in real-time, integrates IIoT data into business applications and makes operational decisions to impact business operations and bottom-lines. The platform follows standard connectivity protocols and is supported by all operating systems, including custom real-time operating systems. The second offering of the suite is Datonis MInt, which connects with clients’ heterogeneous plant floor systems and measures key performance indicators. The Datonis MInt module collects data from machines, existing SCADA and DCS systems, enterprise data historians and manufacturing execution systems (MES) to a single repository that provides a holistic view into clients’ manufacturing operations data. Lastly, Datonis Edge, the final solution in the Datonis suite can overcome unstable connectivity issues. The Datonis Edge is a store and forward system and has a built-in cache for storing messages when offline. Additionally, it also uses data batching, compression and various other techniques to ensure that it can deal with limited network data bandwidth.
