The Sight Machine Platform

Sight Machine enables companies to gain real-time visibility and actionable insights for every part, machine, line, and plant throughout a manufacturing enterprise. Our analytics platform enables manufacturers to use all of their data—no matter where or in what format it’s created. We do this with an automated and systematic data intake process that acquires, refines, and contextualizes data, creating a digital twin of each part and process.

01

Acquire

Transmit Inputs

Receive data from virtually any data source.

  • Historians
  • Energy Meters
  • Images
  • Quality Systems
  • MES
  • ERP
  • PLCs
  • Spread Sheets
  • Logs
  • SQL
  • PCs
  • Batch Reports
  • MTConnect

Condition Data

Translate, add metadata, and package for API input. On low bandwidth connections, redundant data can be micro-batched and compressed to maximize transmission efficiency to the cloud.

Ingests and conditions the full variety of data from the factory floor to ship to Sight Machine’s AI Data Pipeline.

API – Data Inputs

Our inbound API lets customers use existing data collection infrastructure to feed Sight Machine using a convenient REST/JSON format. IT maintains fine-grain control of any on-premise infrastructure.

02

Analyze

Refining & Cleaning

Blending & Joining

Contextualizing

AI Data Pipeline

Convert unstructured data into contextualized data in real time by using our unique expert systems and machine learning classifiers. Our AI Data Pipeline is customizable using Digital Twin Builder.

Automatically prepares and contextualizes process and product data using artificial intelligence. Generates a Plant Digital Twin configured to mirror your manufacturing production. Applies machine learning and advanced analytics to surface anomalies and insights.

Digital Twin Builder

Complete control over the Extract Transform Load (ETL) layer with self-service data preparation, using Digital Twin Builder. Inspect raw payloads, organize streams, and input parameters used to contextualize data.

Plant Digital Twin

Create a dynamic mirror of your plants, lines, machines, products, and processes using our purpose-built digital twin, which produces a comprehensive, real time semantic context of process and product data.

Dashboards

Process Control

Supply chain visibility

Alerts

Analytics

Real-time streaming analysis supporting best practices in quality reporting, engineering diagnostics, and KPIs on asset performance.

Analytics Workbench

Design new reports and dashboards, showing correlations, distributions, and root causes, in real-time.

  • Rootcause
  • Optimization
  • Predictive
  • Statistical Process Control
  • KPIs
  • Anomaly Detection
03

Visualize

Data Scientist

Access to cleaned, conditioned data, transformed into tables and intuitive objects.

Machine Operator

Key sensor information and related KPIs for the line and machine.

Plant Manager

Real-time visibility into every machine and line throughout the facility for immediate and actionable insights.

Corporate Manager

Standardize KPIs to compare across divisions, plants, and suppliers to identify problems and best practices.

Uses analyzed data to present real-time visibility and actionable insights for every machine, line and plant across your entire enterprise. Sight Machine’s Global Ops View and contextualized dashboards present the right information to the right people.

API – Data Inputs

Your data is completely portable through our REST and SQL-like HTTP APIs, or access your data directly through ODBC interfaces. This lets you integrate your digital twin data into existing BI workflows and reports.
