Presentation: Prerequisites and quick wins for AI on the shop floor

As per Johns Hopkins Medicine, intelligence in humans is defined as the ability to solve complex problems or make decisions with outcomes benefiting the actor. But to come to this beneficial outcome the information on which the decisions are being based has to be correct. The same is true of A/I. Therefore, in Manufacturing we need to focus on the following:

  • Ensure one single source of truth.
  • Provide the right information at the right time.
  • Identify quick wins to gain trust and acceptance.
