Event series solutions 2022: AI in SMEs - analyses with scarce production data

In the second half of 2022, the solutions event series "Shaping the change of times - strengthening SMEs in OWL" takes place. The Institute Industrial IT (inIT) is also participating in this. On 19.10.2022, inIT and Fraunhofer IOSB-INA jointly presented Artificial Intelligence methods and practical application examples.

Nissrin Perez (Fraunhofer IOSB-INA) presented an AI application example to the participants of the solutions event.

Who is not familiar with this? Either large amounts of data are generated that are not always targeted, or only incomplete data are available. In addition, production data change dynamically, so that adjustments have to be made in systems and plants. This requires robust approaches in Artificial Intelligence for intelligent automation.

Which methods are suitable and for which applications they are used was the aim and topic of this event. Prof. Dr. Volker Lohweg, M.Sc. Anton Pfeifer and M.Sc. Christoph-Alexander Holst from inIT gave presentations to the interested SMEs on Artificial Intelligence methods that are suitable for analysing scarce production data. M.Sc. Nissrin Perez from Fraunhofer IOSB-INA showed practical application examples of AI in production plants from SMEs. Different optimisation goals were presented with regard to sustainability, efficiency and quality.

The IHK Lippe supported the event, which took place at the SmartFactoryOWL in Lemgo and, with the AI Reallabor, demonstrated an ideal environment for the use of Artificial Intelligence technologies in the production environment.
