14. Feb 2019

Survey-Based Customer Analytics

Our customer, a heritage-rich porcelain manufacturer, developed a completely new laser engraving method for use on porcelain products after production with the fundamental intension to launch a specific product design in the form of engraved plate sets.

A data collection process using online and offline surveys as well as interviews was designed to identify the market potential and to forecast price sensitivity and expected sales figures using advanced analytics methods.

Digital Transformation in Renewable Energy
20. Nov 2018

A central data management platform for analyzing aggregate sensor data

Collecting, processing and analytically evaluating its own historical data, sensor data and energy data centrally – with this goal in mind, a global energy group planned the development of a digital platform. All facilities for renewable energy were to be monitored and controlled in real time. The use of data science tools to analyze the vast quantity of data should enable predictive maintenance on a large scale.

But the first step was to bridge the gap between business users and IT: the energy group engaged Positive Thinking Company with this qualified change management. Our case study explains which hurdles had to be overcome and how the gap between business users and IT was closed.

Coaxing a 20th-century factory into the new millennium
23. Aug 2018

Retrofitting legacy machinery with IoT-ready control units

Once the plant of an established manufacturer of metal-mesh personal safety equipment was highly innovative. Built in the 1960s and upgraded with the most modern electronic controllers available in the 1980s – is starting to show the weaknesses of its age: although the machinery still works smoothly, the electronic components are woefully out-of-date: replacement parts are no longer easily obtainable, so malfunctions can result in stoppages of unforeseeable duration. In addition, manual processes make process flows more difficult: Starting up a production batch involves flashing a memory card with the process instructions and walking it over to a controller box mounted onto the equipment, where it is slotted in by hand. The procedure has been repeated for each new run, several times a day – for the last 30 years.
