SKALA

KNOW EXACTLY WHEN IT'S DONE

Link your production equipment to SKALA’s advanced machine learning algorithm to generate actionable dashboards, optimize the drying process, and boost your revenue.

Get results

One customer drove a continuous improvement project by using SPC data. You can see the result in their data: they cut the standard deviation on their main process control spec in half.

SKALA helps you minimize deviation by collecting the data you need to track your process in real time, automatically. Digital readings come directly from the instrument, and the readings are tagged to all the metadata you need to identify process variation for effective statistical process control. No writing, no typing, no data entry.

 

SPC in real time

SKALA includes tools for control charts, histograms, pareto analysis, scatter diagrams, and more. Process control charts let you monitor key variables during production and make process changes in real time to prevent your process from going out of control.

 

Make QA and production a power couple

Quality numbers that stay in the QA department are dead statistics. In-line data visualization tools empower every production worker to own quality and efficiency goals. QA generates the data; production uses it to adjust processing time, temperature, humidity. Result: less scrap and rework, a more consistent product, and often an improved relationship between production and QA.

Profitability Case Studies:

Client A

Before: Water activity across all products was 0.7935, with an average moisture content of 28.5%. 59% of the product was outside of ideal spec.

After: Average water activity 0.8018, with an average moisture content of 29.2%. Only 7.9% of the product outside of ideal spec (following 6 month utilization period).

Result: $546K (includes savings from reducing rework by 51.1%).

Client B

Before: Average water activity 0.536.

After: Average water activity 0.59. Increase in product moisture content: 0.62%.

Result: $389k in product savings.

Client C

Before: average water activity (August) 0.761.

After: Average water activity (September) 0.771. Increase in product moisture content: 0.5%.

Result: Client achieved $100K in product savings.
