    Anomaly Detection in Manufacturing

    Anomaly detection is a step towards resilience that will serve any manufacturer well. Manufacturers with mature anomaly detection capabilities achieve substantial operational cost reductions from reduced defect and scrap rates, improved quality and reliability, prevention of unplanned equipment downtime, and even optimized energy consumption. Typically, most data streams simply confirm normal operations and provide no new actionable information. However, when data shows an anomaly, it can indicate something has changed or is behaving abnormally?leading to actionable insights about how to correct any issues before they become widespread or time-consuming.  This whitepaper covers the basics of anomaly detection for manufacturing, relevant use cases from our practice, and key techniques you can use in your business.

    Using AI to detect complex anomalies in time series data

    The Spotfire Data Science team is actively engaged in developing applications of Deep Learning Autoencoders for Anomaly Detection in Manufacturing.  In a dynamic manufacturing environment, it may not be adequate to only look for known process problems, but also important to uncover and react to new, previously unseen patterns and problems as they emerge.  Univariate and linear multivariate Statistical Process Control methods have traditionally been used in manufacturing to detect anomalies.  With increasing equipment, process, and product complexity, multivariate anomalies that also involve significant interactions and nonlinearities may be missed by these more traditional methods.  This is a method for identifying complex anomalies using a deep learning autoencoder.  Once the anomalies are detected, their fingerprints are generated so they can be classified and clustered, enabling investigation of the causes of the clusters.  As new data streams in, it can be scored in real-time to identify new anomalies, assign them to clusters and respond to mitigate potential problems.  These tools are no longer the exclusive province of data scientists.  After an initial configuration, the method shown can be routinely employed by engineers who do not have deep expertise in data science.

    Factory: Monitoring, Maps, Anomaly Detection & OEE

    Modern factories are populated with complex, expensive equipment.  Manufacturers want to extract the greatest value from their factory equipment by maximizing equipment uptime, product throughput and quality and minimizing cycle times. Identifying bottlenecks in processing, taking proactive action in response to developing situations, and increasing operational system awareness are all key themes in sensor-driven manufacturing monitoring.

    Overall Equipment Effectiveness or OEE is a high-level measure of equipment productivity.  The OEE model combines measures of equipment availability, performance and quality. 

    • Availability is the percentage of time that the equipment is available to operate ... or Uptime.  Scheduled downtime, unscheduled downtime and non-scheduled downtime (holidays or training) all contribute to availability losses.
    • Performance is the speed at which the Work Center produces product as a percentage of its designed speed.  Performance losses are categorized as either due to Rate or Operational inefficiencies.  Rate losses are caused by equipment running slower than theoretical speed.  Operational Losses may be further broken down into Engineering and Standby Losses.  Engineering losses occur when production turns equipment over to engineering, often to perform tests or experiments.  Standby losses occur when the equipment is available but there is no product or operator to run it.
    • Quality is Good Units produced as a percentage of the Total Units Started. Sometimes referred to as First Pass Yield. Rework and scrap contribute to Quality losses
    • OEE is calculated by multiplying Availability, Performance and Quality percentages together.

    The High Tech Manufacturing Accelerator contains components to allow monitoring of production line performance against established metrics using Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). It captures data feeds from sensors on production equipment, validates the feeds, and evaluates the data against configurable business rules. It includes components to visualize all these activities in a custom web dashboard, allowing operators to take corrective action when production issues are identified.
