Of all digital transformation providers, only Sight Machine offers a complete manufacturing-specific analytics platform, together with the industry expertise to make a business difference for Paper & Tissue manufacturers. Here’s how:

Unlock the Business Insights Hidden in Your Data.
With the One Platform that Can Actually Do it

The Sight Machine platform is an analytics breakthrough that acquires, blends, and contextualizes all your data — from machine sensors, quality systems, and MES — and models it into an in-depth digital twin of your entire production process. Sophisticated AI, machine learning, and advanced analytics algorithms are then applied to deliver:

Complete mapping of process interdependencies upstream and downstream

discovery of the root cause of problems

Optimal, evidence-based production settings for each individual paper reel

Real-World Results

In mid-2018, a global Paper & Tissue manufacturer chose Sight Machine as their facilities-wide data analytics platform. Here are some of the results already achieved from Sight Machine’s initial deployment at a plant with annual production of 1.2 million tons:

Eliminating Problems at the Root.

The Sight Machine platform analyzed workflow events such as dryer steam pressure swings for defined time intervals in the context of recorded outages, to identify parameters correlated with downtime.

This precision root-cause analysis was performed without any data wrangling: the platform made all information readily presentable in whatever view, matrix, and context the analysts specified.

Days or weeks of tedious numerical analysis were condensed into a few minutes of straightforward visual scrutiny.
