SAN FRANCISCO, February 25, 2016–
Sight Machine Inc. today announced that Tier One automotive supplier Martinrea International Inc.’s division in Manchester, Mich., has selected Sight Machine to transform the way it uses manufacturing data from the factory floor. Sight Machine is working with some of the world’s largest manufacturers in automotive, life sciences and consumer goods to turn Big Data from the plant floor into actionable insight.
Martinrea’s initiatives represent a milestone for Big Data in automotive manufacturing. Martinrea’s Manchester Division manufactures fuel lines for automotive OEMs and will use Sight Machine both to evaluate lean manufacturing initiatives already underway and to gain the real-time insight it needs to reduce downtime and costly material waste.
Sight Machine is initially working with Martinrea on process manufacturing improvements on lines making critical components for several marquee vehicles. Sight Machine is providing real-time monitoring and retrospective analysis across a broad range of data, delivering early warning when processes are going outside of parameter and root cause analysis of past process failure.
“We chose Sight Machine to help us transform the way we use our manufacturing data,” said Chris Oginski, general manager at Martinrea’s Manchester manufacturing facility. “We continuously push to improve our processes, and Sight Machine offers us critical insight and potentially a competitive advantage.”
