IntevaInteva Products Selects Sight Machine for Manufacturing Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, May 19, 2015

Sight Machine Inc., developer of the leading manufacturing analytics platform, today announced that Inteva Products LLC, a global automotive supplier of engineered components and systems, has selected Sight Machine’s manufacturing analytics solution for deployment in Inteva factories.

Sight Machine transforms heterogeneous machine and sensor data into actionable insights, helping manufacturers tackle critical challenges in quality, performance and operations. Unlike general-purpose Big Data tools, Sight Machine is built for the specific needs of manufacturers.

“Inteva has a history of deploying advanced technology for business advantage, first with cloud computing and now with Big Data for the factory floor,” said Jon Sobel, CEO of Sight Machine. “Working with Sight Machine, Inteva is using factory data and manufacturing analytics to move ahead of its competitors by continuously improving part quality, process efficiency, and plant performance.”

“Manufacturing software can be a data prison,” said Dennis Hodges, chief information officer of Inteva Products. “Sight Machine breaks factory data out of its prison so we can understand what is happening now, make sense of what happened yesterday, and predict what will happen tomorrow. We see manufacturing analytics as a must-have technology for any manufacturer that wants to maintain a competitive edge.” Hodges has received several industry honors including recognition as one of Computerworld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders, InfoWorld’s CTO 25, and ExecRank’s Most Distinguished CIOs.

Manufacturing analytics is rapidly gaining recognition as the most impactful new technology for advanced manufacturing in a generation. According to a 2014 report from McKinsey & Co., “[advanced analytics] can be a critical tool for realizing improvements in yield, particularly in any manufacturing environment in which process complexity, process variability, and capacity restraints are present. Indeed, companies that successfully build up their capabilities in conducting quantitative assessments can set themselves far apart from competitors.”
