Responding to spontaneous changes is not always easy. When people had to face the Corona pandemic and the resulting contact restrictions, the demands on modern technology skyrocketed. Companies suddenly had to find ways to hold meetings that were usually held at the company from home, business meetings had to be conducted online and trainings and education could no longer be held on-site due to the large number of participants. Solutions included conferencing tools like Zoom or Teams, e-learning platforms and AR and VR applications.

Augmented reality is already used in many companies for training or education purposes. In the context of AR, reality is combined with virtual reality; an overlay takes place. With the help of AR glasses or the cameras of tablets or smartphones, information such as videos and images with computer-generated additional information can be superimposed into the field of vision and an interaction is possible. For example, cars or airplanes no longer need to be disassembled, as all necessary objects can be superimposed into the field of view. Certain actions can also be performed on the object, since interaction is possible with the objects displayed in the field of view. This offers the advantage that difficult situations can be simulated in the virtual space and thus dangerous situations can be prevented. Errors, such as incorrect operation and resulting accidents or defects can be prevented and the company saves costs and effort. Considerable savings can also be made in training: If machines or devices have to be installed at the customer’s site, the employee in charge no longer has to travel all the way there but can guide him with the help of AR glasses. The operator who must install the machine, for example, sees helpful objects and images in his field of vision. The counterpart sitting in the offering company sees the same field of view and can mark and insert important things.

Another tool that has gained popularity is e-learning platforms. It can be used to exchange data and for testing and training employees. Especially at universities, those platforms are used to provide materials and to conduct tests and exams. Companies can use these platforms to conduct online training, for example, on the topic of IT security. Questions can be answered interactively by employees and the subsequent answers are analyzed and evaluated. In this way, it is possible to monitor and analyze performance. Weak points and possible areas for improvement can be identified.

Last but not least, conferencing tools like Zoom and Teams have become indispensable. Especially for large companies or universities, it was a challenge to provide a tool for several hundred people to communicate with each other via video within a short period of time. In some cases, hurdles in terms of data law have come up, as internal company information could not simply be shared online. Because of that, some companies have developed their own tools, which helps to counteract the problems.

The idea of holding meetings and trainings online that have typically been held face-to-face and travelled extensively for was at first unfamiliar for many companies. Over time, however, it became clear that this could save time as well as money and effort. Rethinking the importance of meetings was encouraged.

The Corona pandemic has acted as a catalyst for digitization in many companies. Opportunities were considered that had never been thought of before. There is a suitable solution for the needs of every company – it just has to be found!

Data Science is a discipline that has been around for a long time. Many have heard of the term but find it hard to define, since it combines various fields such as statistics, scientific methods, artificial intelligence and data analysis. The data is first prepared, then cleaned, aggregated and processed. Subsequently, an extended data analysis is performed. The results can then be reviewed and patterns can be identified from which insights can be drawn. Data Science is also closely related to data mining, machine learning and big data.

Data Science is also a branch of engineering and mathematics and is therefore important for TEWS. At TEWS, Data Science is applied to perfect the instruments and their processes.

TEWS instruments can be used to determine the moisture and density content of products in the food/feed, paper, pharmaceutical, chemistry and tobacco industry. The data produced by TEWS instruments must be analyzed and interpreted using statistical methods and can then be displayed graphically.

A single moisture value may not say much at first glance, but it hides a great deal of information: With the help of Data Science, it is possible to make statements about this value and draw conclusions for future action. For example, if a moisture value has changed significantly over the last few months, or if it has fluctuated greatly, it is possible to deduce what problems might exist in the costumer’s production process.

Three steps are essential for Data Science and form the foundation for further action:

  1. Domain Expertise & Business Understanding

First of all, we need to understand the customer’s production process and its challenges. Because often customers approach us with the question of whether we can measure the moisture content or density of their product at a certain production step and in the end it turns out, based on our decades of experience in a wide range of industries, that the measurement at another point makes more sense. So before we can focus on determining how the moisture or density value can be used we have to understand the customer’s process and define the measurement problem, first.

  1. Engineering

During the engineering phase, we focus together with the customer on the correct installation, setup and adjustment of the suitable measuring system. Once the measurement system is calibrated and running properly, it can generate, process and store data.

  1. Data Interpretation

In the third step, the data from the moisture and density measurement instrument is analyzed and interpreted using statistical methods. For example, mean values, noise and fluctuations can be determined. The identification of correlations and trends as well as of recurring patterns are important for drawing further conclusions: How has the moisture value developed over time, , what conclusions can be drawn from this and are there measures that must and can be taken against it?

The domain expertise, i.e., the knowledge that exists about the customer problem, is enhanced with the help of engineering methods. This results in approaches that are then interpreted and evaluated.  TEWS uses data science methods to practice co-improving: TEWS is a solution provider with the goal of finding scientifically sound, precise, reliable and robust solutions to the customer problem.

So Data Science can help us….

  • Understand customer problems
  • Quantify previously qualitative problems
  • Develop appropriate customer-specific solutions
  • Improve customer processes
  • Connect our MW systems
