Our client is a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer that produces the latest medicines. To test medicines they create, our client utilizes a special dissolution machine that dissolves medicines in a water-like medium.
In order to test accurately, the dissolution machine needs to be calibrated; if the machine isn’t calibrated, medicine experiments are potentially inaccurate. Later, if the client finds out the machine wasn’t calibrated, they then must manually check all previous experiments, which is a very tedious and expensive process.
Also, since the machine was being monitored via human observation at all times during experiments, this resulted in a high percentage of human error.
Luxoft implemented an artificial intelligence (AI) solution to replace the majority of time-consuming and potentially erroneous human observation. This semi-automated solution helps avoid hours of manual inspection freeing up the resource for other work.
Using a visual sensor to analyze the wobbling and rotation speed, this solution uses computer vision to “visualize” the process, frame-by-frame. Deviation from the correct amount of wobbling and rotation speed is calculated automatically. Afterwards, if the machine is in an incorrect state, the AI alerts our client to the situation via a user-friendly dashboard.
- Saves time by accurately notifying when the machine is not in its correct state, cutting out the guesswork. This allows employees to avoid bottlenecks in their workload and finish tasks quicker
- Eliminates the possibility of human error by letting AI handle the observation task
- Helps save money by decreasing the amount of manual labor, enabling workers to focus on more important tasks
- Is scalable – adding a new smart camera to accommodate future changes is easy
Thanks to predictive maintenance, our client is now free from unexpected delays caused by machine faults, ensuring a dependable testing environment.
