UDMTEK: The Behemoth of Automated Manufacturing Process Management
The dawn of industry 4.0 brings with itself the pathway for efficient collaborations between humans and robots, collectively creating quality products for the betterment of society. In this era of automation, as digital application-based equipment enters the factory floor, the onus is on manufacturers to retrain their engineers and technicians to stay up to date with the control systems of their automated machinery to minimize any needless risk or delays. In solving the issue, a pioneer of Al and ML technologies—UDMTEK—has developed a platform that enables manufacturers to create digital twins of their equipment control logic for engineers to have early access in detecting errors in the standard operational workflow.
Established in 2007, UDMTEK develops and delivers unified digital manufacturing technology with the latest digital transformation trends. While the primary focus in its early years was on virtual commissioning and validation of automobile manufacturing control logics, UDMTEK spent years perfecting the continuous interpretation and analysis of a control program within a system. Utilizing this inherent knowledge, the company designed a proprietary AI-based machine control language to process relevant machine data in creating concrete digital twins of automated equipment through practical application software, systems, and services.
Presently, UDMTEK offers manufacturers and OEMs best in class edge analytics and AI edgebased automation. Engineers can use the systems to automatically record, reproduce and check unified digital data from a control logic console to identify any abnormalities in routine operational workflows. The digital twin platform allows manufacturers to view, interpret, and predict anomalies in equipment, improving the efficacy in machine operation and optimal maintenance of their automation systems. "We use unified data translation of control logic, including control program interpretation, control log, the actual image, and observation data, to transform and analyze automated control systems," says Wang Gi Nam, CEO of UDMTEK. A manufacturing industry first, UDMTEK's machine language processing technology interprets and analyses the execution of control logic and the characteristics of data flow inside a machine or automated process. By releasing a set of methodologies for analyzing and extracting meaningful information from control language execution-related data, UDMTEK is setting the current standards for a modern and innovative factory operational approach.
Synchronized Equipment Control and Operation
UDMTEK's Unified Intelligence eXplainable Model platform (or UXIM) is an all-in-one package that enables manufacturers to deploy a factory-specific and edge analytic solution effectively and efficiently. Powered by machine language processing technology, UXIM allows the extraction of control program semantic knowledge, building explainable and understandable models for domain engineers and data scientists.
We Use Unified Data Translation Of Control Logic And Related Data, Including Control Program Interpretation, Control Log, The Actual Image, And Obseravation DAta, To Transform And Analyze Automated Control Systems
The straightforward onboarding approach of DMTEK allows manufacturers to translate multiple control program languages into a Unified Digital Manufacturing Language (UDML). A computer language developed by UDMTEK, UDML can express various control program languages as one common piece of information. It understands the relationship between static and dynamic data flows in control programs by suggesting a relational-explainable AI model similar to the graphic neural network of natural language processing technology. Once the languages are translated to the UDML format, engineers can use the data to build explainable neural graph networks, maintaining a control log and essential domain data pertaining to a piece of machinery. UXIM is also capable of learning the built graph neural network of the schematics to understand the day-to-day functioning. If any changes are found in the control logic that may cause damage to production outflow, engineers can immediately step in to make the necessary alterations and maintain quality production. "We built a domain-specific digital twin platform for reproducing and analyzing control operations and their interpretationusing the explainable AI model," comments Wang Gi Nam.
Fortified by UDMTEK's automated manufacturing solution, engineers are armed with the necessary tools to improve production efficiency and reduce time and effort without compromising on results. While keeping a check on discrepancies such as a silent stop, hidden delay factors in the control process, and an unusual trend change, engineers can use the digital twin application to reproduce the corresponding control operations by examining and comprehending the control log, actual controlled image, and keydata flow concerning all related automated processes. A service technician can detect an anomaly's root cause and improve delay factors by investigating relational data flows and control models through this process. Machine language processing allows the responsible personnel to create reproducible digital schemas of machine control operations and enable them to interpret, analyze, and predict machine control characteristics at any stage of a production line.
A Class Apart
Currently, many companies try to improve the manufacturing process through digital transformation with data-driven software rather than hardware development. This approach could very well impede the definitive goals of an organization; UDMTEK, on the other hand, takes a different route. "Our machine language processing is based on the tangible goal-oriented digital transformation of control processes and the related data in building explainable AI models for many practical applications," comments Wang Gi Nam.
Likewise, UDMTEK's PLC eXpert software for control program design stage analytics can be used to search for static data of the program that controls a machine and detect errors in production design before a manufacturer commences a product output procedure.
Besides, control and maintenance engineers can use the Black-Box product to observe and reproduce precise control logic programs that are pre-recorded. The added feature allows them to improve productivity, detect process and quality change, and predict machine health conditions by analyzing dynamic information of the operational process.
"With our highly innovative machine language processing, we have developed the gold-standard digital twin technology for industry-leading companies such as Hyundai/Kia Motors, LG Display, MOBIS, LG Energy, Samsung Electronics, and more," comments Wang Gi Nam. UDMTEK's impressive solutions allow manufacturers to alleviate their automated production and optimize operations through precise control analysis. Customers can analyze, comprehend, and predict future control characteristics of automated complex process conditions.
