Endress + Hauser
The Endress+Hauser Group is a leading manufacturer of measuring instruments for industrial process technologies and automation. With a production of around 2 million devices per year, a large amount of production and service data is generated. The goal of Endress+Hauser is to use this data better in order to detect an accumulation of problems earlier in the future and to initiate measures for quality improvement at an early stage. The aim of the project was to create an analysis tool that uses this data to improve the detection of faults in the equipment.
Using data sets from several product lines, we developed a prototype of a model in a first project sprint, which enables an early prediction of device problems. In addition, we created a dashboard that allows an interactive visualisation of the data. In subsequent sprints, the entire tool was completed with further relevant data and statistical models in order to make even more qualified statements about future equipment failures.
