StatSoft Poland Showcases Successes at Annual Seminar
StatSoft Poland recently concluded its popular, annual series of data mining / data analysis seminars during October. Drawing roughly 650 attendees, this year’s presentations centered on improvement of production processes, covering applications in manufacturing and scientific research, as well as specific use cases by StatSoft customers and demonstrations of STATISTICA’s broad data mining capabilities.
Attendees learned of the collaboration between StatSoft and AMCOR Flexibles Reflex to develop an integrated SPC quality system with STATISTICA. An industrial packaging company, AMCOR’s complex production processes consist of several stages, so AMCOR required a monitoring platform that could meet specs for security, performance, and quality while offering easy access to information that could produce thorough reports on any production aspect necessary. AMCOR’s Justin Sikorska described how his company found that STATISTICA can readily deliver real-time process monitoring; produce summary tables and graphs based on past data; issue alerts for adverse events; execute SPC monitoring to measure regulation and stability; anticipate failure through predictive maintenance models; and track raw product components through all manufacturing stages (i.e. product traceability). Sikorska also described AMCOR’s pleasure with STATISTICA’s “clear and user-friendly environment.”
Also featured was Luke Depczyński of Saint-Gobain ADFORS, an industrial fabric and construction reinforcement company. ADFORS’ manufacturing plant, located in Gorlitz, requires continuous monitoring of changes in process parameters and final product properties due to high production volume and the specific, individualized requirements of its multiple customers. Mr. Depczyński described how Saint-Gobain ADFORS selected StatSoft to develop a suitable quality control system with STATISTICA and presented an overview of their successful integration.
StatSoft Poland’s seminars were conducted in Warsaw, October 22-24, 2013, at Hotel Gromada Warszawa Airport.
