BISTel, a provider of intelligent, real-time data management, advanced analytics and predictive solutions for smart manufacturing announced today its first adaptive intelligence (A.I.) based applications to enable the smart connected factory or industry 4.0 as some call it. Called Dynamic Fault Detection (DFD), BISTel’s new fault detection and classification solution offers customers full sensor trace data analysis to detect and classify faults real-time, improving quality and yield significantly.
Today, customers rely on legacy FDC systems for accurate fault detection. These systems offer only summary data analysis from sensors for fault detection. Consequently, small changes in sensor behavior can go undetected, resulting in a negative impact on yield. BISTel’s new Dynamic Fault Detection (DFD®) system overcomes these challenges by offering full trace analysis. Because BISTel’s new DFD® system establishes trace references dynamically and does not rely on the traditional control limiting methods used by FDC, it eliminates modeling completely. DFD also uses smarter algorithms to better distinguish between real alarms and false alarms resulting in 10 times fewer alarms than FDC systems.
“DFD is the first of several intelligent manufacturing applications with new machine learning that will help our customers to start to realize the full potential of A.I. for smart manufacturing,” commented W.K. Choi, Founder and CEO, BISTel. “DFD enables customers to quickly and accurately identify and classify faults. DFD helps our customers create early identification of yield related issues so that they can quickly execute the fastest possible response to solving these issues.” added Choi.
Sensor trace data contains a wealth of information that helps manufacturers identify potential yield issues, including ramp rate changes, spikes, glitches, shift and drift. BISTel’s first of its kind, online Dynamic Fault Detection (DFD®) system lowers these risks by offering manufacturers real-time monitoring and detection of full sensor trace data. Customers can now quickly detect, and analyze yield impacting events and quickly resolving yield issues. DFD® also integrates seamlessly to legacy FDC systems.
