APPROACH

To address this, the team at Tredence developed an analytically robust approach with the following specifications:

  • Identified primary drivers among the selected machine variables using ML variable reduction techniques
  • Driver models to understand key influential variables and determine the energy consumption profile
  • Identified the right combination of drivers under the given production constraints – time, quantity and quality
  • Optimization engine to provide the machine settings for a given production plan

KEY BENEFITS

  • The learnings will be used across similar machines to create operational guidelines for reducing energy consumption

RESULTS

  • We were able to achieve a ~5% reduction in energy consumption across major machines
