DataProphet is a data science company specialising in predictive and prescriptive machine learning solutions within the manufacturing industry. Behind DataProphet’s success is a strong team of thirty data scientists, with diverse skillsets in Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics and Actuarial Science.

Our solution, OMNI, is targeted towards complex, multi-step industrial manufacturing processes, utilizing an advanced form of supervised and unsupervised machine learning to:

  1. Predict defects, faults or any quality issues with a product.
  2. Identify high yield operating regime.
  3. Perform quality control tasks using computer vision on every product.

With the ability to learn from historical production process data, OMNI automatically finds the optimal set points for variable process parameters within their control limits to maximise the output yield. The solution takes into account ambient features and understands how different process parameters interact with each other through the successive steps in the manufacturing environment.

OMNI can then, for any new production batch, serve optimal parameters learnt from previous experiences and account for process drift occurring in the natural manufacturing environment (e.g. regular machine wear).

Currently deployed at numerous manufacturing sites globally, OMNI has consistently increased yield and reduced scrap rates. In each case, the results are quantifiable at a financial level.
