AI-based Setup Time Prediction
MPDV Mikrolab GmbH
Predict setup times with AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) methods make it possible to analyze large amounts of data, identify patterns and make predictions based on this information. The mApp AI-based Setup Time Prediction identifies factors influencing the setup time (e.g. combining different machines, tools or material properties) from historical order data. This information is then used to make a forecast as accurate as possible on the duration of the setup time to be scheduled.
The mApp compares the predicted setup time with the planned setup time and the actual setup time per operation providing you with detailed information. You can then intuitively evaluate the differences by visualizing the data graphically with line and bar charts. The results are presented either by workplace, by day or as an overall analysis for the selected period.
The mApp also calculates setup time ratios. For example, this can be the number of setup operations per day where the predicted setup time is closer to the actual setup time than the planned setup time.
You receive setup time predictions that you can use to plan much more realistically and at the same time avoid unnecessary buffer times and increase your productivity.
The mApp uses data of the Virtual Production Reality (ViPR) of MPDV's Manufacturing Integration Platform (MIP).
