Industry 4.0: Are We There Yet?
Industry 4.0 seems to be the white whale of industrial manufacturing. It’s the goal that every large-scale manufacturing facility is striving to achieve, but it always seems just barely out of reach. One reason for this is a lack of cohesive understanding of what Industry 4.0 truly is, but to understand that, we must first […]
How Do You Calculate First Pass Yield in Manufacturing?
First pass yield is a key performance indicator that demonstrates the quality and efficiency of a manufacturing process. This manufacturing intelligence figure specifically tells you the proportion of finished units that pass inspection during product testing. The best way to improve production yields and efficiency is to gain full visibility into the manufacturing process. Enhanced […]
Why Context is King in AI for Manufacturing
Introduction There’s a lot of excitement around the potential of AI to transform manufacturing. And that’s because it can improve efficiency, optimize processes, and even lower costs. But there’s also a lot of hype and misinformation about how it works and what AI can do. In this article, we’ll look at why context is king […]
Approaches to Industrial AI: Finding a Path to Scale
Traditional approaches to AI in manufacturing end up as costly prototypes with little real-world impact. To achieve scale, a new type of solution is needed. It’s hard to explain. The manufacturing industry is one of the most natural candidates for driving value from artificial intelligence and machine learning. Manufacturing processes generate high volumes of semi-structured […]
AI-based Defect Detection – A Brief Overview
You don’t need us to tell you—faulty parts leaving the assembly line are bad news. Defects increase manufacturing costs, hurt product quality, diminish brand value, and generate industrial waste.

A Breakthrough in High-availability ML in Production
A new approach to guarantee 0 down-time in production ML models. ML models are static, but data is dynamic and constantly changing. It’s just a matter of time before the model is no longer relevant, or even worse — starts making costly predictions. Why is Data Drift so dangerous? Let’s look at a simple example: […]
Everything You Need to Know About Automated Optical Inspection With AI
Producing quality products is of the utmost importance for any manufacturer. An important element of ensuring quality is visual inspection, otherwise known as optical inspection. This process has traditionally been carried out by humans, but recent advances in AI in the manufacturing industry have revolutionized this quality control process. Manufacturers across all industries, especially in electronics and […]
Top 3 Ways Manufacturing Analytics Will Help Your Factory
Success in manufacturing requires constantly exploring new ways to streamline operations. In the past, this meant spending months dissecting every single process looking for ways to make that process more efficient. Thankfully, the rise of industry 4.0 and IoT have given rise to a new way for manufacturers to assess their processes: manufacturing analytics. These […]
Best Practices for Training ML & AI Models for Manufacturing
Model training is the process by which a machine learning program is trained to perform the specific task at hand. The goal is to achieve the best possible performance through model training, to the point where the end result can mimic human-level performance in its specific task, or even surpass it. AI training models are […]
