Seeq is founded on the premise that many process manufacturing organizations are DRIP “Data Rich, Information Poor” (DRIP) and the number will increase with new sensor deployments and higher data creation rates driven by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As a result, the existing need for solutions for process manufacturing companies to derive insight from their data will only become more widespread and important in the future. Seeq’s vision is to address this requirement by closing the gap between advancements in data and computer science - big data and machine learning as examples – and the software available to engineers and plant employees, delivering innovation as features in easy to use, advanced analytics applications. In addition the Seeq vision includes the needs of whole organizations including collaboration, publishing, and IT requirements that span teams, plants, and divisions. Finally Seeq includes the flexibility of on premise or in the cloud and distributed deployments to “future proof” customer investments and accommodate organization strategies for data collection and management.

✍️ Authors: Gautham Unni, Namrata Sharma, Sean Tropsa

🔖 Topics: Predictive Maintenance, Manufacturing Analytics

🏭 Vertical: Semiconductor

🏢 Organizations: AWS, Seeq

There are challenges in creating predictive maintenance models, such as siloed data, the offline nature of data processing and analytics, and having the necessary domain knowledge to build, implement, and scale models. In this blog, we will explore how using Seeq software on Amazon Web Services can help overcome these challenges.

The combination of AWS and Seeq pairs a secure cloud services platform with advanced analytics innovation. Seeq on AWS can access time series and relational data stored in AWS data services including Amazon Redshift, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), and Amazon Athena. Once connected, engineers and other technical staff have direct access to all the data in those databases in a live streaming environment, enabling exploration and data analytics without needing to go through the steps to extract data and align timestamps whenever more data is required. As a result, monitoring dashboards and running reports can be set to auto generate and are easily shared among groups or sites. This enables balancing machine downtimes and planning ahead for maintenance without disrupting schedules or compromising yields.

🏢 Organizations: Seeq

With advanced analytics, the engineers collaborated with data scientists to create a model comparing the theoretical and operational valve-flow coefficient of one control valve. Conditions in the algorithm were used to identify periods of valve degradation in addition to past failure events. By reviewing historical data, the SMEs determined the model would supply sufficient notification time to deploy maintenance resources so repairs could be made prior to failure.

How Seeq, a Grantek Partner, Predicts Batch Quality at Life Sciences Manufacturing Facilities

📅 Date:

🏢 Organizations: Seeq, Grantek

Nothing is more important than protecting patient health. That is why quality is the most critical metric in pharmaceutical manufacturing. During manufacturing of new or existing medicines, drug companies need to test each batch to ensure that the quality consistently meets standards. Predicting the quality of each batch is a challenge for most drug manufacturers. It is a labor-intensive and time-consuming—though necessary—process. Typically, samples are taken and sent to the lab for analysis while the process is actively running. The analysis alone adds several hours to the process time. And, if the lab returns inadequate results, time-consuming—and often expensive—changes need to be made if the batch is recoverable. If not, the manufacturer can lose hundred of thousands to millions for the lost batch.

Using Seeq, the scientists running the processes built a model of process quality based on data from the OSIsoft PI data historian. The manufacturing team uses this model to predict the quality of the in-progress batches. This allows for modifications to be made during the production process before the batch would be lost due to quality issues.
