Improve enterprise quality, lower the costs associated with poor quality and increase production yields.
How SAS Enables Better Manufacturing Quality
Get a consolidated view of quality across products, people, places and processes. Gain in-depth knowledge of customer perceptions. And detect potential problems early.
Enterprise quality data management
- Get a single, comprehensive view of quality across the entire product life cycle.
- Eliminate data silos and combine the voices of the process, product and customer.
- Integrate structured and unstructured quality-related data from all sources.
Advanced early-warning analytics
- Quickly combine and analyze huge quantities of data using predictive analytics with embedded AI.
- Identify issues early, even before they occur, so you can proactively take corrective action to improve outcomes.
- Use patented analytic models to detect emerging trends faster and more accurately than traditional early-warning techniques.
- Achieve advanced process control (APC) using predictive modeling techniques, including neural networking, regression analysis and clustering.
- Automatically monitor the health of all manufacturing processes to help ensure continuous product quality.
- Set up downstream processes based on upstream results to compensate for prior quality issues.
- Increase production yield while reducing scrap and waste, lowering energy usage and costs, and supporting sustainability initiatives.
- Gain deeper process understanding with a complete spectrum of market-leading advanced analytics tools – from exploratory analysis, to design of experiments with optimizers, to cause-and-effect tools.
- Enable more uptime and smoother operations by using root-cause analysis to troubleshoot and correct issues fast.
