Industrial & High Tech Manufacturers

Industrial Case: Use Smart Connected Operations to Minimize Production Downtime, Maximize Team Performance and Optimize OEE End-to-End

With SCO, companies use interconnected machines and devices, intelligent analytics, and connected workers across product development, manufacturing, operations, supply chain and service to enable smarter, faster business decisions and achieve meaningful results.

Companies have high expectations for SCO, but face significant challenges, including general business awareness, a complex technology ecosystem, lack of people and skills, security concerns, data governance gaps, and change leadership.

One clear way to prove the value of SCO is to enable operational excellence in field operations. When there is large capital equipment in the field, it generates massive amounts of data. Companies are seeing real value through their ability to quickly glean insights from that data, and automate a wide range of processes and tasks.

At LiveWorx 2019, Kalypso brought to life a smart connected, field service operation that digitizes field operations to enhance OEE and reduce non-productive time. Our demonstration used machine learning algorithms to monitor condition health indicators of critical equipment and predict upcoming faults. Prescriptive analytics drive insights into real-time OEE for enhanced decision making. We also showed how insights can be turned into actions for connected workers in the field, with the use of augmented reality (AR) to conduct equipment maintenance.

We used a real oil & gas industry example, but the concept applies to any large capital equipment operating in other industries. Digital technologies like IoT, machine learning and augmented / virtual reality all come together within a connected enterprise to seamlessly offer tangible business value. Viewers learned how to minimize production downtime and optimize preventative maintenance, maximize team performance and empower managers to make informed decisions, and facilitate end-to-end asset optimization through connected production management and integrated operations control.

We presented the following educational sessions for industrial & high tech manufacturers

Digitizing Field Operations in O&G to Enhance Production Throughput and Overall Performance

A large independent oil and gas exploration and production company are among the top five developers of oil-rich shale in the Permian basin, producing about 288,000 barrels of oil equivalents per day (BOEPD). They must leverage innovation and emerging technologies to find new approaches to operate oil fields that result in increased oil production and improved asset life.

This session showcased a practical implementation of industrial IoT technology, involving real-time data from thousands of sensors located on a site in Midland, Texas with 30 wells. The company is using the ThingWorx platform to rapidly deploy a smart connected field operations solution designed to help personnel transition from reactive to proactive mode. This will have a direct impact on increasing overall oil production and extending the useful life of surface facility equipment.

The integration of generative design, advanced simulation, IoT and additive manufacturing offers manufacturers a powerful opportunity to enable an automated, responsive design cycle. With digitally integrated product development, product performance results can automatically enhance and optimize 3D models in real-time, leading to direct additive manufacturing of a re-designed product or component.

In this session, presenters demonstrated this approach through an integrated prototype solution and will demonstrate the automated update and additive manufacturing of a real automotive component.

Request the slides to learn about the transformative opportunity for new product development through generative design techniques.

The EHT industry has its owns unique set of challenges including new product introduction cycles, shorter product lifecycles and increasing product complexities and regulatory compliances. As a result, achieving the end-goal of reducing costs while increasing efficiencies between OEM/ODM, EMS and downstream suppliers can seem like a monumental task. In this session, we will explore how PLM can be used to manage the EHT Digital Thread across multiple stakeholders to resolve issues related to disconnected processes, product data and resources.

Jabil, the world’s third largest electronic manufacturing services provider, discussed how they leveraged the Digital Factory to expand expertise, ingenuity and supply chain optimization to help their customers innovate and maintain market leadership.

Medical Device Manufacturers

Medical Device Use Case: Improve Business Outcomes and Patient Experiences with IoT and Advanced Analytics

Medical device manufacturers are racing to capitalize on innovative new business models enabled through outcome-based reimbursement. Meanwhile, increasing regulatory requirements like EU MDR and initiatives like FDA's Case for Quality program put a growing emphasis on product quality and post-market surveillance.

At LiveWorx 2019, Kalypso brought to life a fully integrated smart, connected medical device program to showcase how field service organizations can use IoT to manage complexity and drive new revenue models.

In the booth, Kalypso showcased a Field Service for Medical Device use case to highlight how a leading medical device manufacturer leverages ThingWorx to deploy a global, fully connected field service operation. Leveraging IoT, machine learning and predictive analytics, medical device service operations can increase productivity, decrease equipment down-time, and ultimately improve the provider and patient experience.

The FDA Case for Quality (CfQ) provides guidance on how to shift from compliance-centric to product-centric outcome based innovation business models. This new strategy relies heavily on digital transformation and harmonization of cross-functional activities that contribute to the safety and efficacy of each device. Once implemented, regulatory imperatives like EU MDR, UDI, and EUDAMED become more easily managed and a competitive differentiator as regulatory information management (RIM), product BOM’s, documents, changes, non-conformances, complaints and CAPA’s are part of one integral system.

During this session, CONMED shared how they are implementing proactive regulatory and quality business strategies within their businesses, milestones to date, and lessons learned along the way. As moderator, Kalypso showcased industry best practices and leading methodologies.

To meet consumer demand for the latest trends and hottest styles, brands and retailers are challenged to bring products to market at unprecedented speeds – in an era when the supply chain is becoming more global and complex than ever and where transparency is becoming essential. This panel explored the need for supply chain connectivity and will provide real-world practical use cases to demonstrate how brands and retailers can integrate PLM with other leading technologies to digitally ‘join the dots’ in the supply chain to open up new opportunities, unlock additional value, improve sustainability and reduce time to market.

What if you could turn your PLM data into insights that matter?

Your business is sitting on months, even years, of untapped product data. And today’s PLM analytics can only do so much to maximize it.

Product Lifecycle Intelligence (PLI) is an evolution of PLM that applies artificial intelligence and automation to help PLM users extract meaningful insights from product data, formulate predictions, recommend improvements, and automate actions within systems and processes.

Enabled by advanced machine learning techniques, PLI helps organizations predict the impact of product development decisions on key business performance metrics like demand, cycle time, cost, quality, regulatory compliance, manufacturability and supply chain efficiency.

What is PLI?

Watch this video to learn about structured data, advanced analytics vs. machine learning, and more about how PLI leverages these technologies to maximize the value of PLM data.
