Use Machine Learning To Predict Remaining Useful Life

Machine learning (ML) and stream processing technology are powerful solutions for remaining useful life (RUL) analysis. Manufactures can use the large amounts of data produced by sensors combined with human inspections of finished pieces to train ML algorithms. The ML tools can then proactively alert operators when a tool is approaching its end of life, allowing them to schedule the replacement for a convenient time. Stream processing algorithms can also process all the sensor data being generated by any number of production machines, make on-the-fly comparisons with historical data, and increase the accuracy of ML algorithms. This solutions flyer explains how smart selection and application of ML tools combined with the availability of clean, governed datasets help manufacturers optimize their maintenance and wear part replacement schedules.

Data-Driven Warranty Risk Profile Analysis

Most manufacturers must handle large numbers of warranty claims related to a variety of products and components. The volume of claims can easily run to millions per year for consumer goods manufacturers. Patterns within claims data may indicate emerging quality or design problems; therefore, identifying and prioritizing the issues requiring high priority responses is critical to improving quality and reducing the financial impact of claims. This solutions flyer how advanced data analytics tools enable teams to cleanse and organize data from any set of repositories and apply machine learning technology to identify emerging quality or design issues.

The Data Driven Enterprise, Panel Discussion

The panelists for this discussion hosted by Altair CTO Sam Mahalingam, are Joshua Patterson, Sr. Director of Engineering at NVIDIA, Dr. Carsten Bange, Founder & CEO of BARC, Juan Orlandini, Chief Architect, Cloud and Data Center Transformation at Insight, and Carsten Buchholz, Project Engineer - Hybrid Electric Flight Demonstrator bei Rolls-Royce. Transforming an organization into a data-driven enterprise isn’t simply a change in how data is used, it’s a fundamental culture shift that requires more than just access to data. What analytic capabilities and tools are needed across an organization to leverage data across an enterprise? How is data-literacy accomplished throughout the workforce? How can competing business needs, decentralized environments and resulting data silos be overcome? Our panel will discuss roadblocks and best practices for enterprises to successfully move data to the center of decision-making. The recording is about 35 minutes long, and was presented at the 2020 Global Altair Technology conference.

The Next Generation Data Scientist

Gartner recently released their  'Top 10 Data & Analytics Trends for 2020' where they stated that "the collision of data and analytics will increase interaction and collaboration between historically separate data and analytics roles. This impacts not only the technologies and capabilities provided, but also the people and processes that support and use them. The spectrum of roles will extend from traditional data and analytics to information explorer and citizen developer as examples". With Forbes predicting that there will be a shortage of at least 250,000 data scientists in the US alone by 2024, how will our data-driven enterprises survive? Should we empower citizen data scientists and embody a data democratisation approach or is there a better way to optimise our data science teams? Join us as we discuss  'The Next Generation Data Scientist’  with our expert panel. Discussion Points: What type of person is the Next Generation Data Scientist? How can organisations develop these highly prized people? Can you explain one of the most advanced data science projects in your organisation and some of the stumbling blocks you have encountered along the way? What do you see as the most pressing trend in data science? If you had to boil it down to one sentence, what is the most important thing organisations should do to stay ahead of the competition?
