Superior Caster Analytics for Data-Driven Decision Making

At Kiss Technologies, everything starts with data. We don’t believe in guesswork. Instead, we believe in the data we collect, measure, and test with our state-of-the-art caster analytics tools. We use data gathered from these tools to make strategic decisions that improve our clients’ caster functionality and production quality. This is called data-driven decision making, and it’s at the heart of everything we do.

This six-step process wheel is a visual representation of how we make those data-based decisions. From collecting and measuring data to analyzing it for your specific application, we follow each step in the flywheel to develop insights we know will positively improve your casting process. After each insight is implemented, our process wheel keeps turning as we evaluate the impact of those new decisions for continuous improvement.

1. Audit

We start our process by examining your situation. We take stock of your current casting process and work with you to determine what problems you are experiencing and how we can help. We’ll also look to see what data you have available, and in what form.

Kiss Technologies concludes this step with a complete evaluation of your challenges followed by an identification of opportunities for improvement. We paint a picture of your current casting situation, and we’ll identify key casting goals for the future of your plant.

2. Measure Data

Once you’ve had time to review our proposed approach to your plant, we will deploy Kiss Technologies measurement systems and services specifically tailored to your plant and your machines. Our caster measurement tool is called CasterANALYTICS, and it works to collect and measure data from all key functions of your machines. CasterANALYTICS outputs allow us to measure your machine’s performance and analyze the data we need to optimize your casting process.

3. Manage Data

With the Kiss Technologies CasterANALYTICS tool in place, we then work to aggregate data for real-time analysis and historical trending. We take data from every source in your plant, including plant processing data, measurement systems, as well as our own measurement systems, and we put it all in one common storage. This affords a big-picture view of your casting process and allows us to apply machine learning and analytics techniques to all data sources simultaneously.

With data managed in one convenient location, we’re able to apply machine learning and analytics techniques to all data sources simultaneously. This affords a bigger picture view of your casting process and enables us to develop insights that benefit your entire production.

4. Analyze Data

At this point, Kiss Technology data engineers review all data collected throughout the previous three steps and analyze it. Information collected through our machine learning and modeling systems is interpreted to improve your facility’s overall production capabilities. It’s our data engineers’ broad casting expertise that sets Kiss Technologies apart from the competition and enables us to develop sophisticated, applicable insights that optimize your casting process.

5. Visualize Data

As Kiss Technologies solutions start to positively impact your plant, our team works hard to ensure it’s all visible and easily accessible to you. We place a high priority on data visibility, which is why our CasterANALYTICS tool allows you to manipulate views into data for your own analysis, and see key data measurements and parameters on one screen. We call this your dashboard. Totally customized to your data, your company, and your preferences, your dashboard offers:

  • KT900 3-D and Heat Map Visualizations
  • Key casting parameter display
  • Shared process insights, from our team to yours
