Hitachi Vantara Brings Industrial IoT to the Production Floor with Lumada Manufacturing Insights

Press releases   •   Sep 11, 2019 13:15 +08

Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today announced Lumada Manufacturing Insights, a suite of industrial internet-of-things (IoT) solutions that empower the manufacturing industry to achieve transformative outcomes from data-driven insights. Using artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and DataOps, Lumada Manufacturing Insights optimises machine, production and quality outcomes to set the foundation of digital innovation that is essential to Manufacturing 4.0.

“Data and analytics have the power to modernise and transform manufacturing operations. But for too many manufacturers today, legacy infrastructure and disconnected software and processes slow innovation and impact competitive advantage,” said Brad Surak, chief product and strategy officer at Hitachi Vantara. “With Lumada Manufacturing Insights, customers can lay a foundation for digital innovation that works with the systems and software they already have, to operationalise immediate gains in uptime, efficiency and quality and transform for the future.”

Accelerate Manufacturing Transformations

Lumada Manufacturing Insights applies data science rigour to drive continuous improvement opportunities based on predictive and prescriptive analytics. The solution integrates with existing applications and delivers actionable insights without the need for a rip-and-replace change of costly manufacturing equipment or applications. Lumada Manufacturing Insights supports a variety of deployment options and can run on-premises or in the cloud.

“With Hitachi Vantara, our customers benefit from our deep operational technology expertise and distinctive approach to co-creating with them to accelerate their digital journey,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer at Hitachi Vantara. “With our proven methodologies and advanced tools, we can tailor solutions for our customers that enhance productivity, increase the speed of delivery and ultimately deliver greater business outcomes.”

Providing machine, production and quality analytics, Lumada Manufacturing Insights drives transformational business outcomes by enabling customers to:

  • Build on the intelligent manufacturing maturity model and empower the digital innovation foundation for continuous process improvement.
  • Integrate data silos and stranded assets and augment data from video, lidar and other advanced sensors, to drive innovative new use cases for competitive advantage.
  • Drive 4M (machine, man, material and methods) correlations for root-cause analysis at scale.
  • Evaluate overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and enhancement recommendations based on advanced AI and ML techniques.
  • Evaluate scheduling efficiency and optimise for varying workloads, rates of production and workorder backlogs.
  • Monitor and guide product quality with predictive and prescriptive insights.
  • Improve precision of demand forecast and adherence to production plans and output.

“The big challenge for manufacturers is how to effectively manage the cost, resources and market pressures of supporting use cases for the immediate now and the transformative future,” said Mike Guilfoyle, director of research at ARC Advisory Group. “Doing so requires a portfolio approach to transformation and a digital innovation foundation that is platform agnostic, secure and edge-to-multicloud capable. This is central to Manufacturing 4.0 and helps manufacturers accelerate time to value as they grow their digital competency.”

Early Adopters See Initial Benefits

“Significant short-lead products have to be designed, prototyped and delivered to meet the demands of our customers and partners as we accelerate the product supply for 5G. Ericsson and Hitachi Vantara have collaborated to test Lumada Manufacturing Insights to gear up for an anticipated increase in new product introductions, establishing a digital innovation foundation for sustained gains,” said Shannon Lucas, head of customer unit emerging business for Ericsson North America. “We are leveraging the same solution that we will take to our joint customers in partnership with Hitachi Vantara, and will further expand IIoT use cases based on our 5G technologies.”

“As a progressive manufacturer, our focus was to accelerate transformative change, eliminate data silos and build a foundation for digital innovation that would accelerate our journey towards Manufacturing 4.0. We leveraged the IIoT workshop to align our use cases with our business transformation priorities and have a roadmap for success with Lumada Manufacturing Insights,” said Vijay Kamineni, business transformation leader at Logan Aluminum. “The collaboration with Hitachi Vantara enables us to define business goals for each stage of our transformation, with clear outcomes that we believe will accelerate gains in productivity, quality, safety and sustainable manufacturing. Hitachi Vantara brings a unique IT/OT advantage that will help us in the long run.”

“Humans and machines working together to deliver the vision of ‘digital drilling’ is driven by our ambition to achieve transformative outcomes, drilling our best wells every time and consistently achieving Target Zero for accidents. With Hitachi Vantara, we are realising time to value with industrial analytics and the powerful Lumada platform to process more than 20,000 data streams per second per rig, providing actionable information to the right people at the right time and helping make optimal decisions. This drives our operational excellence and consequently our competitive advantage,” said Shuja Goraya, CTO at Precision Drilling Corporation. “We're leveraging insights from video and lidar, integrating it with Lumada Manufacturing Insights to deliver business outcomes. It’s driving process optimisation through effectively identifying improvement opportunities and shortening well delivery times for our customers. It’s all about effective use of data to make better decisions and then being able to consistently execute on these learnings. We are excited about our strategic partnership with Hitachi Vantara.”


Lumada Manufacturing Insights will be available worldwide Sept. 30, 2019. For additional information, please visit: https://www.hitachivantara.com/en-us/products/iot-operations-intelligence/lumada-manufacturing-insights.html.

PharmaLinea at Vitafoods Asia 2019

Press releases   •   Sep 10, 2019 15:41 +08

Following our very successful exhibition last year, receiving great visitor and media attention and an award at the Tasting Centre, PharmaLinea is returning to Vitafoods Asia on a larger scale to showcase our latest innovations.

Raising clinical substantiation standards

Clinical substantiation is one of the core principles we will be promoting at the show. Liquid products from >Your< Immuniq Line and >Your< Iron Line both have ongoing clinical trials of the highest standard and will be available for presentation and sampling at our booth – N22.

Particularly in immunity nutraceuticals, the range of quality of clinical trials needs to be emphasized. The study on >Your< Immuniq Syrup is not only double-blind, comparator product-controlled and randomized, but also multi-centric and multi-seasonal: far from the standard, we believe this is key for immunity products.

With over 200 subjects already completing the trial in multiple testing centres over the course of several seasons, results will objectively demonstrate the efficacy of our product. 

Delivering supplements in innovative user-friendly forms

PharmaLinea is well known for superior user-experience and received an award at Vitafoods Asia 2018 Tasting Centre. This year, we are ensuring better compliance by innovating in delivery forms. Iron and vitamin D are among the most common micronutrient deficiencies in Asia. PharmaLinea answers the need by supplying the best sources of these fundamental nutrients in multiple user-friendly forms.

We are extending our lines this September, adding a new innovative delivery form to our portfolio. Iron and vitamins K2+D3 will soon be available in sprays.

Not only do sprays facilitate intake for most sensitive populations, they also offer an adaptable dosing medium and enable high bioavailability of micro-nutrients.

Bringing differentiation to the booming beauty market

Asia-Pacific accounts for the highest share of the global beauty supplements market, but the offer is saturated with repetitive formulations.

PharmaLinea will present an innovative beauty shot, a development achievement with best-in-class branded collagen and curcumin sources. >Your< In-Beauty Shot brings clear differentiation, solid scientific support and improved bioavailability. Additionally, the product is sugar-free and comes with excellent taste.

Standing for stability

Stability of finished products is currently more of a bonus than a requirement in the nutraceutical industry and somewhat of an elephant in the room. Complex products with many ingredients in user friendly forms are the perfect environment for very common ingredient cross-interaction, yet awareness of the issue in the industry is very low.

With increasingly demanding and educated consumers and growing incidence of independent consumer tests, the media is increasingly giving attention to the matter (example 1, example 2). Bringing the promised value to the consumers through stated quantities of ingredients is the coming consumer-oriented trend after clean label and transparency.

PharmaLinea is promoting the importance of product stability across all industry media and will continue to do so for the better of the industry and ultimate benefit for the consumer.
