IQ|A is the digital copilot for lean and sustainable manufacturing. The software provides transparency in production processes and pinpoints where improvements truly pay off.
Revolutionize lean manufacturing with IQ|A: unlock efficient and sustainable production processes with an intelligent value stream twin and AI-based analytics.
IQ|A generates a digital twin of production processes at the click of a button. The software uses data from existing IT systems to automatically reconstruct the actual process flows and material movements, eliminating the need for manual process mapping. This fully automates value stream mapping and enables data-driven process analysis.
With automated Lean Manufacturing analyses, IQ|A quickly uncovers improvement potential in your production processes. AI-based algorithms identify even deeply hidden root causes of process weaknesses and prioritize the most critical areas for action.
Instead of snapshot observations, IQ|A continuously analyzes production processes based on a robust data foundation. Deviations from set targets or optimal conditions are quickly identified, enhancing both the continuous improvement process and daily shop floor management.
Value streams for all products are automatically reconstructed from existing data. Instead of a labor-intensive, manual snapshot, all production and logistics processes are continuously captured in the digital twin and are analyzable on a broad data foundation.
IQ|A provides automated analyses to detect waste in production processes and prioritize resulting action areas. Weaknesses are automatically identified and traced back to their root causes through AI-powered techniques.
IQ|A enables the rapid and data-driven identification of untapped productivity opportunities, along with the continuous monitoring of manufacturing KPIs. This effectively supports both daily shop floor management and continuous improvement process (CIP) through data-centric approaches.
IQ|A integrates the concepts of "lean" and "green": By analyzing the energy and CO2 footprint within the value stream, measures for enhancing efficiency and sustainability can be harmonized, resulting in holistic and comprehensive improvements.
IQ|A creates a digital value stream twin from booking and planning data sourced from production-related IT systems, such as MES, BDE, or PPS/APS, without the need for manual value stream mapping. All process KPIs, including times, production outputs, inventory levels (WIP), scrap, emissions, and more, are automatically determined and integrated into the value stream.
Value stream visualizations and AI-guided analyses tailored for manufacturing are already integrated, enabling easy and immediate deployment by your team. There's no requirement for configuration or extensive expertise in AI and data mining.
Order and material flows are captured and analyzed at the push of a button, even in multi-stage and interconnected value streams. IQ|A utilizes Industrial Process Mining techniques specifically designed for production processes, along with machine learning algorithms, to provide in-depth insights into complex processes.
Through automated data quality checks, implausible booking data can be swiftly detected and excluded, enabling data-driven process analyses even with flawed source data. Additionally, the quality of the data can be specifically examined and analyzed.
IQ|A is a lightweight, cloud-based extension of your existing IT systems. Implementation typically takes only a few days and requires no additional infrastructure.
