Higher First Pass Yield, Lower Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ)

 

From assemblers to component manufacturers to plastics and additives, Delta Bravo helps teams identify anomalies and hard-to-find factors influencing production output. We work with QA, Operations and R&D teams to leverage data that’s being collected today and deploy trained models in a way that supports, not disrupts the business.

Case Study:
Delta Bravo is currently working with Rolls Royce to predict engine failures on a test bed. Our models integrate with existing Operator software to stop the test prior to failure, provide a Root Cause and enable the Operator to restart the test; creating a new capability without disrupting existing processes or requiring training on new systems.

Delta Bravo is also working with a major plastics manufacturer, assisting their R&D team in identifying anomalies that impact varying outputs from the same recipe. Our correlation models helped the team identify minute changes reducing quality issues by 67%, saving the company months of time and millions of dollars.

Increased Throughput, Targeted Scrap Reduction

 

Increased Throughput
Delta Bravo models are in place with a global tape manufacturer, correlating data from machine-level loads and production schedules to increase throughput by over 20%. Knowing in real-time how each machine’s load level impacts overall production schedule performance leads to better decisions managing each production run. Optimizing the best possible set of machines for a given production run is now possible using machine learning algorithms.

Targeted Scrap Reduction
Delta Bravo recently completed an engagement that traced the root cause of component waste to a particular machine process. A machine learning model was applied to this process, enabling the manufacturer to predict if the process would have an 85% or better chance of success. If lower than 85%, the process was terminated and restarted. This reduced scrap rates, saving the manufacturer tens of thousands of dollars per month in wasted materials and improved time-to-production metrics.

Supply Chain Optimization, Demand and Inventory Forecasting

 

Getting the Right Part to the Right Place at the Right Time
Delta Bravo worked with a Top 20 Global Logistics company to deploy models that predict route, driver and truck configuration efficiency.  These models would score each of these factors and provide recommendations for increasing efficiency scores through route adjustments, driver assignment and optimized shipping configurations.  These recommendations saved the customer nearly $4M in the first year.

Predicting Inventory Movement
Delta Bravo worked with an industry leader in the tire field to improve upon their existing inventory movement forecasting models, improving them by over 60%, saving them nearly $5M annually.  We leveraged data in their existing models, but also added weather data and scraped the web for competitor specials that influenced their sales and demand.

Demand Forecasting Across the Supply Chain
Delta Bravo worked with a leading beverage manufacturer in the Walmart ecosystem to predict demand in new stores in new markets. The product had a 24-day shelf life and quantities needed to be optimized to avoid waste. Delta Bravo’s models proved 10% more efficient than previous attempts.

FINANCIAL SERVICES

Know Your Customer.  Reduce Fraud and Operational Cost. Increase Revenue.

DETECT TRANSACTION ANOMALIES
delta bravo, machine learning, AI for the databaseDelta Bravo AI empowers administrators to be proactive if transactions start to spike above or fall below the norm so they can take action before an outage in service or a fraud scenario. Delta Bravo evaluates expected data volumes based on historical patterns and applies boundaries based on volume variation. This system is then used to compare real-time transaction value to expected volume, identifying anomalies in activity, resource consumption and more.

REDUCE RISK OF REGULATORY PENALTY
Within seconds, Delta Bravo Database identifies compliance gaps across the entire data tier, prioritizes them and provides the step-by-step instructions and code for the fix. Financial firms manage an ever-growing amount of data, coming in from trading systems, mobile applications, reporting platforms and more. IT Ops and Compliance teams are turning what used to take months into resolution in minutes. This solution is applicable to SOX, GLB, GDPR and more.

FIGHTING FRAUD
Detecting and preventing fraud is a huge challenge for banks given the large variety of fraud types and the volume of transactions that need to be reviewed and manual or rules-based systems can’t keep up. Delta Bravo AI analyzes transactions and looks for indicators of suspicious behavior including transactions with dubious jurisdictions, suspicious companies or known parties. If fraud patterns are detected, Delta Bravo AI triggers processes to reject transactions outright or flag transactions for investigation and can even score the likelihood of fraud, so investigators can prioritize their work on the most promising cases.

KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER
Delta Bravo AI helps process and analyze mountains of customer data, segmenting customers in easy-to-understand groups. From there, we’re able to personalize content and offers built to meet the expectations and needs of each segment, increasing revenue and customer satisfaction. Our models can integrate with email marketing, SMS and other outreach mechanisms as needed.

CREDIT RISK ANALYSIS

Delta Bravo AI identifies credit payment and churn risks, leveraging various data sources to score applicants. Scoring and risk analysis is based on a number of factors like current income, employment opportunity, recent credit history, and ability to earn in addition to older credit history. Patters are also able to detect credit card “churners,” applicants who are rarely profitable for the card issuer. Delta Bravo AI also provides reason codes for credit decisions that explain the key factors in credit decisions, meeting compliance requirements for GLB.

RETAIL USE CASES
