Optimize manufacturing with AI, machine learning and digitalization

Posted on 9 Apr 2021 by The Manufacturer

Production planning webinar seriesFrom production planning and mechanical engineering to project planning, advanced technologies and digitalization effectively mitigate challenges while optimizing key processes.

INFORM Software Corporation, a leading provider of AI-based optimization software that facilitates improves decision making, processes and resource management across diverse industries, will be hosting three, free webinars focused on optimizing various manufacturing and assembly process in sectors that include: machine building, marine and aircraft engines, turbines, generators, fluid power and air motors, pumps, hydraulics and industry cranes with a high diversity of end products and complex planning processes. Find here a short video of our intelligent production planning solution.

The first webinar scheduled for Tuesday, 1 June, 2021, 17:00-17:30 CEST, 11:00-11:30 AM EDT is on “Production planning of the future – The road to digitalization, AI and machine learning.”

It will demonstrate how companies can utilize AI and machine learning in target environments to increase efficiency and planning in their production. They will learn: how to capitalize on their data by making decisions with the assistance of intelligent solutions that increase planning reliability and adherence to schedules in the long term; how machine learning can help to accurately predict replenishment lead times; and how to optimally schedule production despite limited capacities.

INFORM Software Corporation Chief Operating Officer Justin Newell noted, “By leveraging AI and machine learning, manufacturers can derive key benefits, including shorter throughput times, cost savings, improved materials management, optimized procurement and identification of critical paths within the supply chain, and how to mitigate potential problems.”

The second webinar on Tuesday, 8 June, 2021, 17:00-17:30 CEST, 11:00-11:30 AM EDT will cover “Digitalization in mechanical engineering: Mastering complexity in production”.

Its focus will be on the growing challenges faced by mechanical and plant engineers stemming from increasing production variants, smaller batch sizes, and daily changes often introduced with short notice. Takeaways will include advice on how to master the daily challenges and leverage an intelligent planning solution to achieve delivery reliability, realistic scheduling, and agility within manufacturing and assembly planning processes.

The topic of the last webinar held on Tuesday, 15 June, 2021, 17:00-17:30 CEST, 11:00-11:30 AM EDT, will be “Increased transparency in project and assembly planning focused on machine and plant engineering.”

“Machine and plant engineering demands transparency with up-to-date information, visualization on the impacts of postponements on production processes and orders, synchronization of work lists to capacities and materials, as well as a reduction missing parts, residue and routine work, all of which can be achieved using intelligent planning solutions,” continued Newell. “Through this webinar, participants will learn how to achieve their project management goals while planning and delivering parallel projects on-schedule. They will gain insights relating to centralized planning of all resources from employees and facility space to materials and machines, and how to achieve real-time synchronization with their ERP systems,” added Newell.
