Accelerate your digital journey with Monitizer®

Around the world, foundries are on a digital journey. The goal? To use data to enhance operations and productivity. That journey breaks down into four steps: You collect, visualise and analyse the data, and then you intervene in the process to optimise it, applying what you’ve learned from the data. So far, so familiar. But if you digitise and automate these four steps, one by one, the loop closes and your data continuously drives improvements.

Building the foundation for the digital foundry

We split the digital foundry journey into four phases. Each phase builds on the previous one to enable data-driven optimisation.

 Collect Visualise 
1. The digital foundry journey starts with collecting process data
from local machines and sensors and feeding this time-stamped, standardized and encrypted data to a central database. 
2. With real-time and historical data available locally, managers
can start to visualise it using customised dashboards, charts, graphs
and other reporting tools to gain insight into their processes. Companies
can also use cloud systems to access information remotely, aggregate process data from multiple global sites or lines and visualise it.

Analyse Intervene 
3. By analysing data from one or more foundries, managers can
pinpoint process bottlenecks or problems like poor quality or downtime, and look for what causes them. They can also adopt more complex automated analysis, using techniques like machine learning, that delivers insight in real time. 
4. Based on the learnings from analytics, action must be taken to improve foundry performance. The intervention can be a simple manual adjustment to a machine or an automatic real-time change to machine settings that keeps a process on track. 

What is possible?

Using Monitizer® | CIM, individual foundries can collect data across multiple machines, then visualise it to understand their processes and inform improvements. With Monitizer® | GLOBAL, managers can aggregate data from multiple global foundries, lines or sites, report and analyse it, and again use the learnings to inform improvements.

So, no matter whether foundries are experts or beginners, they can improve their business performance by looking for possible improvements and intervening to make them happen. With Monitizer, DISA can already help businesses turn their data into value right now.

Monitizer® | PRESCRIBE takes an even bigger leap forward, with automated analytics that deliver dynamic, real-time process control across the entire line. This practical, proven service employs Artificial Intelligence to significantly reduce scrap and improve profitability.
