SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/16/13 -- At DEMO Fall 2013 Warwick Analytics will be launching a ground-breaking technology that will enable factories of the future to locate faults faster and easier.
SigmaGuardian automatically locates the root causes of faults, and recommends the most beneficial actions, without the need for hypotheses. It can work with incomplete and inaccurate data, and even resolve No Fault Found problems.
The Cost of Poor Quality is reduced by up to 75%, life cycles are improved, product launches can happen faster, environmental impact is minimised and brands are protected from damaging product recalls.
The software endeavours to move the industry, which has traditionally focussed on improving quality through processes such as Lean and Six Sigma, towards zero defects.
The algorithms within the software have been developed over a decade of academic research. It uses information from all manufacturing processes, including design, warranty and supply chain data, and makes recommendations based on the root causes identified.
SigmaGuardian can be applied across a wide range of manufacturing industries including automotive, electronics, aerospace and pharmaceutical. The technology has already been used to solve issues at global firms including Motorola (provenance of Six Sigma) and is qualified on all major databases such as SAP, Teradata, Oracle, IBM and Microsoft.
Dan Somers says: "Even companies at the top of their game with the most sophisticated Six Sigma techniques may still be losing up to 30% of their product sales value through quality issues, substantially more than their profits. We had reached a glass ceiling when it came to improving processes but now we have the technology to create factories of the future."
Produced by the IDG Enterprise events group, the worldwide DEMO conferences focus on emerging technologies and new products innovations, which are hand selected from across the spectrum of the technology marketplace. The DEMO conferences have earned their reputation for consistently identifying cutting-edge technologies and helping entrepreneurs secure venture funding and establish critical business.
