Kaizen 4.0: Data-Driven Continuous Improvement

14:00 - 14:35



In our presentation we will demonstrate with case studies how we combined concepts of continuous improvement with advanced analytics and data mining in the chemical process industry. Human intelligence and analytics are for us not a choice, but a perfect match.

We aimed to provide the operators with functional indicators to steer the processes. We will show how digital can be a driver for cultural change when combined with participation from the shop floor, not an inhibitor. Further we will address some issues we faced during the project and solutions offered.
