Rajat Sabharwal, CTO at Solulever says: “Solulever’s raison d’être is to empower decision-making across the entire manufacturing process, through actionable data and insights. Themes like OEE Improvement, operator efficiency, QC automation, QC analytics, real time corrective intervention mechanisms, early warning systems are at the heart of our solutions portfolio. We enable these themes by an ‘analytics first’ approach and a carefully curated hybrid architecture, between Edge and Cloud.
“Our Edge based analytics installations are kept close to the point of consumption, to render real time aid in decision making for plant level stakeholders. At the same time, the periodic benchmarking and dashboarding for strategic decision making, that do not necessitate stringent response times and performance, are enabled over cloud. This gives our customers the freedom to harness a hybrid environment on functional-fit basis, while adequately addressing TCO, latency, security, connectivity, data ownership concerns.”
