Case Study: IoT solution implementation at an international process company in the food industry

The company sought to streamline operational processes in a complex manufacturing environment. The pilot began with the lactic acid pumps.


The challenges

  • The pumps were running different recipes, which made their performance assessment a challenge
  • The company had no reliable way of mapping failure data to specific machine IDs due to problems with the ERP system
  • Within 6 months, we’ve designed a unified forecasting model

The implementation of ThingWorx Analytics platform resulted in the following:

  • A forecasting model was developed to anticipate pump failures and provide early warning
  • Four distinct patterns, leading to significant failure rates, were identified
  • Various models were developed in collaboration with the company engineer, resulting in improved manufacturing performance
  • A unique one-to-one model was implemented for each machine: one machine = one recipe

This innovative, unique solution is suitable for all Industry 4.0 engineering tiers.
As part of this collaboration, companies provide consulting, planning, and implementation of augmented reality-based services for IIoT solutions.
