Gain real-time estimates for variables that are time-consuming, costly, or even impossible to produce. Soft sensors help foster your overall production time by providing you with the reliable signals needed to adjust or call off faulty production in advance.
Continuous, precise values
Gain real-time estimates of control values at pin-point accuracy. Our automated model maintenance ensures that models are always up-to date.
Enhanced efficiency and sustainability
Make immediate adjustments to your production to increase efficiency, reduce waste and improve product quality.
The Cost-effective alternative
Thousands of models are built and tested in a fraction of the time as compared to traditional methods for soft sensor modeling. Deployment requires minimal time from your experts.
Real-time insights for early detection
Factory Harmonizer’s Soft Sensor module offers continuous, real-time predicted values for variables that are costly or require a substantial amount of processing time, such as lab measurements. The instant insights empower manufacturers to monitor and adjust processes instantly. This proactive approach aids in the early detection and prompt rectification of deviations for improved throughput and enhanced quality, e.g. by identifying subtle variations in chemical composition before they lead to production defects, saving substantial funds.
At the core of our unique soft sensors is automated machine learning, which eliminates the need for manual model development and hiring an expensive data scientist. The soft sensors are crafted by concurrently building thousands of models, utilizing various algorithms and hyperparameters to identify the most accurate model for your specific use case. Put simply, we let the algorithms make the decisions. This automation not only saves a substantial amount of time but also delivers superior performance.
To guarantee your satisfaction, we make sure to provide precise and clearly quantified model assessments during development to reduce the risk of deploying models with misleading predictions. In addition, our soft sensors remain adaptable post-deployment, continuously enhancing accuracy without the need for expert input.
