Process Optimization as a Trade-off

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Simple Solutions

It’s Simple Solutions Wednesday. Today we talk about optimization using a simple process example. When aiming to leverage full potential of the process, two scenarios can occur: the increase in a parameter with small intervals results in greater production output; the increase in the parameter is pushed too far resulting in negative effects becoming more significant than the increase in production […]

Production Optimization or the Major Approach in Industrial Decision-Making

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Production Optimization, The Fundamentals

Nowadays, decisions-making of a factory is shaped by four forces: market (decisions related to volume & quality); economic (cost reduction targets); social (safety standards); environmental (sustainability initiatives). Providing solutions to all of the above challenges, process optimization takes an important place in the decision-making toolkit of a contemporary manufacturer. As a quantitative tool for industrial […]

Non-Invasive Liquid Level Detection

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Production Optimization, Simple Solutions

This week’s topic of Simple Solutions series is non-invasive liquid level detection. Production equipment that comes into contact with liquid requires regular maintenance and cleaning. A simple solution such as a non-invasive (capacitive, ultrasound or infrared) sensor can make this processes easier and less costly. Smooth surfaces are commonly easier to clean (as opposed to a surface with […]
