A global manufacturer seeks to improve production yield at polymer mixing process.

The company’s polymer mixing process was producing output of inconsistent quality, with yields sometimes dipping as low as 50%.

The scrapping of poor batches created huge costs and was crippling production capacity.

Dynamic product specification in addition to variation in a range of production parameters causing the trouble.

Discovered the critical factors and optimal process parameters through correlation, visual analysis, and optimization algorithms.

A deep process insight was achieved, enabling production teams in daily decision support and continuous improvement.

 

Machine learning helped to further optimize the mixing process. 

The solution eliminated over 50% of the poor quality batches, increasing the average yields to above 90%, and cause a Significant reduction in operating costs (multimillions of dollars).

 

Increased mixing capacity with raised overall production throughput.
