Bridge the Gap in Manufacturing Data Analytics

‘Bridge the Gap’ in Manufacturing Data Analytics

Upskilling Workshop (Skills/Tools)

It is a known fact that the implementation and roll-out of time-series manufacturing data analytics is dependent on multiple factors. One of the key elements is combination of skillsets required. Nearly all modern data science methods, including machine learning have a strong mathematical/ statistical base, the right application of underlying methods, considering process understanding is important. The Domain background, Data Science / Time-series Analytics fundamentals, Statistics, ML algorithms and its application, Optimization techniques, Tool-centric expertise (Python, Data Cleansing, Deployment), etc. are essential skills required to execute different levels of analytics. Just developing tool-centric expertise doesn’t meet the requirements. Furthermore, which tool(s) to use, what features it should have, deployable solution is another consideration.

We under our ‘Pilot Guided Services Framework’, have executed many manufacturing analytics projects of different levels / processes / applications / datasets, etc. Over a period of time, we have analyzed the key challenges right from data inputs, time-stamp process data requirements (type/ Quality / Consistency), Unmeasured parameters, application of right statistical & ML methods to meet the end-objective and deployment related issues of ML models. For more insights, please go through the article here -

In order to address these challenges, gaps in tools and skills, we have designed a Knowledge sharing and Learning program – ‘Bridge the Gap in Manufacturing Data Analytics’. 

Objective: To provide Upskilling / training services on Manufacturing Data Analytics for better understanding the implementation of data science and modeling techniques for Process (time-series) data.

  • Python-based template creation and widget building
  • Soft-sensor building (using Physics-based, First-principle Models)
  • Advanced reports and Dashboarding
  • ML Model(s) deployment methods
  • Best Practices / Guide & Methods for Data Analytics

User Profile / Audience: SMEs / Process domain experts with Mathematical Modeling, Process Modeling, Python/ML expertise

Duration: Typically, 1 week. Depends on the Audience Size.


Use Case Development – Workshops

Tridiagonal will provide analytics engineering support to identify and execute the use cases on your data with your users. We will work on the identified three (3-4) Use cases. The prerequisites in terms of the data requirements (signals/tags/volume, etc.), process details, data modeling & analytics objectives will be finalized. The use case can be worked on the Off-line / On-line data, provided the customer give an access to the data /analytics environment. We will submit the analytics outputs and ROI reports to the teams

Duration:Typically,4-6 weeks. Depends on the number of Use Cases


Custom Session

Tridiagonal Analytics Engineer can provide custom training. This can be structured around activities like reviewing a specific requirement or can involve an open discussion around your current use cases or business critical advanced use cases

Duration:Depends on the end-objective

We use Python and Jupyter Notebook for training modules. For any specific Analytics tool-centric training, we can customize the training modules and make it tool-specific.
