Fujitsu Launches Consulting Service to Support AI-based Platform for Manufacturing and Designing Locations
By apacciooutlook | Monday, December 03, 2018
TOKYO: Fujitsu announces Expert consulting service for use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology at design and manufacturing sites. The service will use the MONOZUKURI AI Framework to systematize functions for incorporating AI into manufacturing locations.
The consulting service will support the implementation of AI technology in customer manufacturing locations by building a learning database for each of the variety of task processes and products in design and production locations. The consulting service will use the MONOZUKURI AI Framework to enable increased AI precision through continuous learning and screening the collected data.
In manufacturing locations there are different variety of products and business processes. Monozukuri AI helps in distinguishing between and appropriately uses learning models for each business process and product. It can be done by extracting knowledge and data from previousassets and locations, collecting it in learning databases, and creating a model with it.
MONOZUKURI AI Framework is an AI-usage platform that implements Fujitsu's AI technology, Human Centric AI Zinrai, and is made up of learning databases, AI processing engines, security authentication servers. Different features of MONOZUKURI AI include –building databases, generating management functions and security functionality.
Builds learning databases for each usage context
Different learning databases are built for each manufacturing business process which includes specification studies, design, validation and manufacturing. This provides highly accurate predictions and decision processing in business process.
Improved prediction accuracy through generation-management functions
The system optimizes itself through continued learning for each cycle of product design. Thus AI can be used even with new products under development enabling production accuracy.
Strong security functionality
The system protects its important learning databases through user authentication and communications encryption.
Easy to combine with existing systems
The system features a standardized set of web APIs, making it easy to link with customers' existing systems and programs.
Uses of MONOZUKURI AI
By using AI and inputting the features of a new product, this service can predict the number of layers necessary in the printed circuit board from the learning database. This can enable a reduction in the printed circuit board design process of approximately 20%.
