Improve quality by predicting issues before they occur, decrease costs, and increase supplier and customer trust and satisfaction
Quality issues can lead to high production costs, low production yields, high scrap rates and service issues that drive up costs and erode margins. Many organizations lack the resources and tools to analyze process variables that can have the biggest impact on quality. They also face serious challenges associated with disparate systems and data – and a lack of visibility that could lead to better insight.
Improve asset uptime, quality and yield
CSC’s Predictive Quality solution helps manufacturers analyze data from multiple operational sources to reach the next level in automation and human-machine interaction. By enabling predictive defect detection and prevention through advanced analytics, it helps improve asset uptime, quality and yield of your production processes.
CSC’s Predictive Quality solution is a suite of systems and services, underpinned by CSC’s Big Data Platform as a Service and data science expertise, to increase product quality, reduce scrap and reduce costs through predictive quality analytics. With Predictive Quality, you can monitor multiple operational data sources in real time, merging data sets to identify unique patterns or anomalies that predict future performance issues. Predictive Quality includes:
- CSC Data Science services to map and analyze data, perform regression analysis and generate predictive analytics
- CSC Big Data Platform as a Service to enable application developers to quickly develop, test and deploy analytics
- CSC OmniLocation® location services platform and M2M/IoT services to integrate systems, machines and assets, using real-time and predictive data to automate processes and alert personnel to potential quality issues
- CSC Agility Platform to enable the rapid deployment of infrastructure in a public or private cloud, with appropriate security controls in place
- CSC BizCloud HC, which enables organizations to create a hyper-converged infrastructure of mainframe, midrange, private and public clouds including Amazon Web Services (AWS), VMware’s vCloud Air and Microsoft Azure.
Turn data into business insights
CSC’s Predictive Quality solution helps companies use their data to discover the untapped potential in their production system data.
Using from sources such as the design data from PLM systems to the claims data from product warranty systems, CSC can build layers of analytics across the entire process. We don’t just take the data and crunch the numbers, we provide an interpretive view of your production processes. Our data scientists, using a proven analytics platform, are able to translate the data into something that is easily understood. This, in turn, enables your organization to make practical uses of your data and implement meaningful change for the business.
Improve quality in real time
Manufacturers already have a wealth of data: manufacturing process data, machine data, quality data, environmental data and more. The sheer volume of this data is impossible to sift through by even highly skilled analysts. But Predictive Quality consolidates that data into a single place, scaling for the velocity and volume required, and then finds ways to create a mapping among the data elements.
You can leverage existing quality data, ERP, supply chain information, Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) data, Manufacturing Execution System (MES) data and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) data. You can also add all the different classes of data from other sources. This includes environmental factors within your manufacturing plant, such as temperature, humidity, light and vibration — anything that can impact your manufacturing process and result in a nonconformance.
CSC’s data scientists apply pre-set data libraries to speed the process of configuring your Predictive Quality solution and use natural language processing, regression analysis, phasing analysis and staging analysis to generate predictive insights from your data.
Predictive Quality reduces data to terms that are easy to assimilate and manipulate. By using continuous measurement (real-time analytics), you can streamline and immediately respond to production process issues. You can review analytic dashboards anytime, anywhere on a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablets.
Gain speed and agility
The uniqueness of CSC’s Predictive Quality solution is its ability to very quickly implement Big Data Platform as a Service in a private, public or hybrid cloud environment or hosted in your data center.
Flexible cloud and deployment models allow you to scale up various business units or projects very quickly, with the level of security necessary. You could run a development or test environment in a public cloud or a production environment in a private cloud. CSC can spin up the initial environment in minutes and from then it’s about “30 days to insights.”
Make data-driven decisions
CSC provides the right balance of accelerators and standards to enable the Predictive Quality solution for any industry, in any environment, with any type of compliance or security requirements. And, depending on your needs, CSC provides an end-to-end solution including information strategy and governance, master data management, data warehouse implementation, systems integration and more.
CSC is technology and vendor-independent, which means we leverage best-of-breed technologies from our global network of strategic partners to provide you with exactly what meets your business needs at any point in time. Nobody can deliver the speed, open-source technologies and expertise like CSC.
With CSC’s Predictive Quality, you’ll gain valuable insights to enable predictability and more efficient manufacturing processes. Talk to CSC about how we can help your organization improve product quality, reduce costs and truly differentiate your brand in the marketplace.
