Case: VELUX Group achieves capacity optimisation with machine learning
With a well-defined goal of increasing capacity and quality on a critical production line, VELUX Group and kaastrup|andersen have collaborated on an analysis of sensor and production data, resulting in a prototype of a machine learning model.
We have deep business understanding and expertise in:
Shop Floor Management
Shop floor management fokuserer på at optimere produktionsmiljøet ved at inddrage medarbejdere på alle niveauer af virksomheden i daglige forbedringsaktiviteter. Ved at skabe en kultur med kontinuerlig forbedring og ansvarlighed, motiverer vi medarbejderne til at identificere og løse problemer, hvilket øger jeres produktivitet og kvalitet.
Using Lean principles and methods, we optimise your production by focusing on eliminating waste, identifying root causes of errors, and optimising resource utilisation. We look at unnecessary movements and processes, waiting times, overproduction, inventory, overtime, and can conduct activities such as 5S and value stream mapping. This increases productivity, improves quality, and reduces costs.
Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
A MES solution allows you to control and monitor your production processes in real-time. It bridges business systems and automation/production systems. MES can increase productivity, improve quality control, reduce costs, increase traceability, and improve planning, among other benefits.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) SCADA is a system used to monitor and control industrial processes in real-time. SCADA is relevant for you if you have complex production processes, large-scale and high production volumes, a need for increased efficiency and safety, better handling of emergencies, or need to strengthen your data-driven decision-making approach.
Warehouse Management System (WMS)
Are you facing challenges with growing warehouse complexity, rising inventory costs, lack of traceability and accuracy, increasing demand and the need for faster fulfillment, complex logistics needs, and requirements for accurate data collection and reporting? Then we can help you organise your warehouse or distribution center and ensure that your facility operates efficiently and achieves its goals.
New Product Introduction (NPI) & Technology Transfer
NPI and Technology Transfer play a crucial role in production. By improving NPI and technology transfer, you can achieve accelerated innovation, effective knowledge sharing, and increased competitiveness. Improvement methods include establishing interdisciplinary team structures, implementing technology transfer strategies, and investing in modern technological tools.
