Highlights of the Case Study: 

Particulars Description 
Client A major manufacturer was finding it difficult to achieve safety compliance in logistics, production, and among workers. 
Business Challenge Our client wanted to manage and monitor its complex workforce, logistics, and manufacturing safety adherence. 
Impact Quantzig offered the client a video analytics solution that enhanced accuracy, eliminated product defects, and provided a holistic view of the manufacturing process.  

Game-Changing Solutions for the Manufacturing Sector 

First we need to understand the role video analytics solution plays in the manufacturing sector. The global demand for manufactured goods is increasing, and a fresh set of challenges regarding safety and security compliance are hampering the growth of the manufacturing industry. As operational and security requirements evolve, AI-enabled smart cameras offer a unique way to control and monitor safety measures for the workforce as well as streamline process flow in the logistics and manufacturing operations. Smart cameras make the workforce, logistics, and production processes smooth. They help to improve operations within manufacturing facilities, benefiting businesses, employees, and customers. Video analytics solutions help achieve operational, logistics, and workforce security and safety compliance, ensuring the efficiency of the entire value chain. Video analytics solutions are fixed, framed, and written to execute a specific task in a pre-determined manner.  

The Challenges of the Client 

Our client is a major manufacturer with a presence across multiple industries. However, the client wanted to manage and monitor its large and complex workforce, logistics, and manufacturing safety adherence. The client was struggling with non-compliance with safety procedures that were undetected, resulting in rising worker force casualty, delayed detection and response time of critical tasks leading to recurring losses, and increasing laceration cases due to machine failure during the production anomalies undetected by human moderators.  

The client approached Quantzig for tailor-made video analytics solutions capable of monitoring safety compliance in logistics, production, and among workers. The client also wanted to monitor its large and complex workforce, logistics, and manufacturing safety adherence. 

The bespoke video analytics solution provided by Quantzig helped our client not only meet their requirements, rather surpass them in every way.

We offered video analytics solutions that helped the client enhance accuracy, eliminate production defects, and offer a holistic view of the entire manufacturing process by detecting faults that are unidentified by operators but hugely impact safety and overall efficiency. Our solution enabled the client to monitor whether the staff was complying with the safety norms. We were able to help the client detect intentional non-compliance with safety procedures, improve the response time of critical tasks, and decrease laceration cases.   

A Broad Perspective on the role of Video Analytics Solutions in the Manufacturing Sector: 

Over the last few years, the use of video analytics has grown significantly in the manufacturing industry due to the rise in the number of manufacturers struggling with monitoring complex workforce, logistics, and manufacturing safety adherence. ML algorithms work to identify anomalies by using data and processing real-time streams captured by cameras. Video streams are analyzed frame-by-frame with the treatment of slices as a unique image processed by the algorithm to ensure a faster response.  

Video analytics solution is programmed to detect personal protective equipment (PPE) violations and activate the alert function of the system that sends an update to the application’s front end. Manufacturers can act upon the alert and make a corrective call to gradually adjust and improve the system so that the employees are trained for process corrections. Therefore, manufacturers have started implementing video analytics solutions to monitor workforce efficiency, track compliance with safety norms, and increase overall efficiency.  

Key Takeaways 

  • Improved monitoring of workforce and logistics 
  • Improved monitoring of safety compliance 
  • Reduced workforce casualty 
  • Reduced costs and increased margins 
  • Improved time management, risk management, and inventory management 
  • Improved productivity and reduced wastage 
  • Prevention of break-ins and thefts
