PROJECT LEAD: Ectron Corporation

PARTNERS: Inova Diagnostics

PROBLEM STATEMENT: The Manufacturer of the IP team, Inova Diagnostics has identified the bottleneck of their ELISA kit  manufacturing as the ELIA kit pouching machine to produce product with the right quality and  volumes. Inova wants to instrument this machine and the process around it to quantify the  contribution of this step to their overall process.

PROJECT GOAL: 

  • The objective of this project is to provide Inova diagnostics with the profile of success and  data to improve ELISA process and production efficiencies/effectiveness​
  • The second objective from a CESMII perspective is to provide a Generic Pouching/Packing  Machine profile and the a process profile for this step for the SM Marketplace™

TECHNICAL APPROACH: 

  • Deploy SmartEYE™ edge IIoT platform and instrument the ELISA kit pouching machine and  process (SmartEYETM provides the OT-IT bridging)​
  • Build machine and process profiles for a Generic packing/pouching machine​
  • Connect to the SMIP using OPC/UA

KEY TASKS AND MILESTONES:

  • Instrument ELISA pouching machine and process around it using  SmartEYE™​
  • Connect the instrumented machine to Microsoft Azure to get a golden data set​
  • Build a generic Packing/Pouching machine and process profile​
  • Connect the generic profiles to SMIP using OPC/UA through SmartEYE™​
  • Prepare a final lessons learned report and use case including recommendations on AI/ML  algorithms to be used on the edge and the cloud
POTENTIAL IMPACT:

  • Increase in Precision Productivity
  • Predictive Maintenance and Asset Monitoring
  • Energy  Productivity
  • Increase in Operational Efficiency
  • Cost savings
  • Plug and Play Solution for IIoT
  • Future  Upgrades/Scalable Solution that can be deployed across multiple industries

BENEFITS: 

  • Generic Process and Machine profiles for the SM Marketplace™​
  • Increase of ease of deployment of SMIP using plug and play SmartEYE™ IIoT edge platform​
  • Increase in membership of CESMII with clear, direct value add to existing and potential members
