Digital Twins in Manufacturing and Industry

Digital Twins are real things interacting with virtual, high-definition models of themselves.  Fueled by the convergence of connected sensors & IoT, AI & big data technology, digital twins expand ordinary human vision and insight.  They allow us to immerse ourselves in micro, macro and remote environments, access Internal conditions that can’t be directly measured, predict the future and extract meaning from blizzards of data and complex systems ... in real-time.  They provide the level of agility needed to quickly adapt to changing conditions.  This webinar provides an introduction to the topic, covers technology requirements for digital twins and examples of their use in manufacturing for: improved designs, predictive maintenance, proactive yield management, advanced process control, remote monitoring and control ... and more. 


The many types of digital twins in manufacturing are shown above.  View video below for some examples from our practice.

Anomaly Detection in Manufacturing

Anomaly detection is a step towards resilience that will serve any manufacturer well. Manufacturers with mature anomaly detection capabilities achieve substantial operational cost reductions from reduced defect and scrap rates, improved quality and reliability, prevention of unplanned equipment downtime, and even optimized energy consumption. Typically, most data streams simply confirm normal operations and provide no new actionable information. However, when data shows an anomaly, it can indicate something has changed or is behaving abnormally—leading to actionable insights about how to correct any issues before they become widespread or time-consuming.  This whitepaper covers the basics of anomaly detection for manufacturing, relevant use cases from our practice, and key techniques you can use in your business.

Using AI to detect complex anomalies in time series data

The TIBCO Data Science team is actively engaged in developing applications of Deep Learning Autoencoders for Anomaly Detection in Manufacturing.  In a dynamic manufacturing environment, it may not be adequate to only look for known process problems, but also important to uncover and react to new, previously unseen patterns and problems as they emerge.  Univariate and linear multivariate Statistical Process Control methods have traditionally been used in manufacturing to detect anomalies.  With increasing equipment, process and product complexity, multivariate anomalies that also involve significant interactions and nonlinearities may be missed by these more traditional methods.  This is a method for identifying complex anomalies using a deep learning autoencoder.  Once the anomalies are detected, their fingerprints are generated so they can be classified and clustered, enabling investigation of the causes of the clusters.  As new data streams in, it can be scored in real-time to identify new anomalies, assign them to clusters and respond to mitigate potential problems.  These tools are no longer the exclusive province of data scientists.  After an initial configuration, the method shown can be routinely employed by engineers who do not have deep expertise in data science. 

Anomalies and their component signatures in a time series dataset

The TIBCO anomaly detection solution leverages cutting edge Tensorflow Autoencoders to identify anomalous behavior in multivariate environments. This methodology maps many variables into a lower dimension and compares the predicted value to the actual readings; if the predicted value is far from the actual reading it is labeled as an anomaly. This approach also offers the user visual analyses to find causes of the anomalous behavior. 

Real-time Monitoring

The Hi Tech Manufacturing Accelerator provides a framework for real-time monitoring of univariate and multivariate control charts.  (See section on Factory Monitoring and OEE.)  Watch a demo of the Autoencoder deployed to the Hi Tech Manufacturing Accelerator for real-time monitoring.  

Advanced Process Control

Advanced Process Control is an application of digital twin technology that involves the use of sensor & metrology data to implement real-time tuning and control of processes.  This facilitates greater control of process variability than is achieved with the Basic Process Control techniques above.  Techniques include feed forward, feed backward and predictive process modeling.

FACTORY: Monitoring, Maps, Anomaly Detection & OEE

Modern factories are populated with complex, expensive equipment.  Manufacturers want to extract the greatest value from their factory equipment by maximizing equipment uptime, product throughput and quality and minimizing cycle times. Identifying bottlenecks in processing, taking proactive action in response to developing situations, and increasing operational system awareness are all key themes in sensor-driven manufacturing monitoring.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness or OEE is a high-level measure of equipment productivity.  The OEE model combines measures of equipment availability, performance and quality. 

  • Availability is the percentage of time that the equipment is available to operate … or Uptime.  Scheduled downtime, unscheduled downtime and non-scheduled downtime (holidays or training) all contribute to availability losses.
  • Performance is the speed at which the Work Center produces product as a percentage of its designed speed.  Performance losses are categorized as either due to Rate or Operational inefficiencies.  Rate losses are caused by equipment running slower than theoretical speed.  Operational Losses may be further broken down into Engineering and Standby Losses.  Engineering losses occur when production turns equipment over to engineering, often to perform tests or experiments.  Standby losses occur when the equipment is available but there is no product or operator to run it.
  • Quality is Good Units produced as a percentage of the Total Units Started. Sometimes referred to as First Pass Yield.  Rework and scrap contribute to Quality losses
  • OEE is calculated by multiplying Availability, Performance and Quality percentages together.

The High Tech Manufacturing Accelerator contains components to allow monitoring of production line performance against established metrics using Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). It caputres data feeds from sensors on production equipment, validates the feeds, and evaluates the data against configurable business rules. It includes components to visualize all these activities in a custom web dashboard, allowing operators to take corrective action when production issues are identified.

Blockchain Opportunities in the Manufacturing Supply Chain

Manufacturers today face a number of logistics and supply chain challenges that could be overcome by systems providing a secure, tamper-resistant, single source of truth. Chief among these challenges is limited data sharing due to data security barriers among suppliers, shippers, manufacturers and test houses, an impediment to achieving optimal product quality and regulatory compliance. Additionally, inefficient and inadequate processes for tracking goods make it more difficult to isolate shipping problems, track faulty parts and verify product authenticity. Counterfeiting has become a serious problem that costs US-based semiconductor manufacturers $7.5 billion annually.
