Choose The Solutions You Need

In the long run, the cost of a public cloud for medium and large enterprises will be eventually higher than a private cloud. So instead of paying rent for public cloud service providers, invest in WISE-STACK to have your secured, flexible, and very own data center.

Case Studies

Success Stories

Prevent Unnecessary Costs With WISE-STACK

Challenge:

Conditions in steel works are hot, dusty and hazardous. Temperature control is an important factor in a steel factory since it affects the environmental conditions of the workforce and therefore steel production directly. Therefore, efficient cooling systems should always be running 24/7 without issue.

In a famous internationally steel company located in southern Taiwan, there are 300+ sensors around the cooling system that collect 250K data samples per sec. Apart from the massive data transmissions, they also need to be able to analyze it in real-time to prevent, or even predict potential issues in the production lines to avoid the future losses if the facility fails.

Before WISE-STACK, there was no efficient solution for data collection. They had no choice but to perform it manually, using lots of people patrolling the works to monitor the whole factory.

Solution:

Advantech's edge device-MIC7500 was used for data collection and transmission to WISE-STACK 300, which was equipped with an AI node to build training models to learn and inference.

All the data was presented on a dashboard via Advantech's WISE-PaaS real-time cloud service. All the data was displayed visually in bar graphs, pie charts, or line charts. This not only provided in-time indicators for operators to make decisions but also provided a forecast capability for future trends, and to prevent the usual breakdowns or technical errors on the production line.

Summary:
  1. Yield rates on the production line were greatly improved which reduced the production costs significantly.
  2. An AI preventive maintenance system improved the service life of equipment, and reduced production line downtimes.
  3. With automated remote diagnosis and pre-scheduling maintenance, the company massively reduced the cost of labor and emergency response times.
  4. The low-code framework reduced time and costs. Now it only takes 30% of the time for developers to finish a project, which translates to 3 fold increase inefficiency of the developer team.
  5. The one-stop-shop solution was also easy to expand, and the company was willing to purchase another set of WISE-STACK servers for AIoT applications, accelerating their 360-degree digital transformation.

Command Center In A Hospital Instantly Takes Care Of Your Patients

Challenge:

The complications of patients having chronic illnesses such as diabetes means their quality of life is greatly affected, as well as the resources of the medical system. Sometimes, it even threatens the life of the patients. There are more than 2 million diabetes patients in Taiwan and around 23 million outpatients annually. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, reducing the frequency of chronic patient visits to the hospital is a must.

Taichung Veterans General Hospital, one of Taiwan's top 10 hospital, is doing something about it.

Solution:

With the AI-driven data application platform- Advantech WISE-PaaS, along with Advantech's private cloud solution-WISE-STACK 300, the hospital can collect physiological data and analyze the key indicators with AI to assist the medical team to spot issues immediately and provide necessary healthcare. An app is also built in based on the WISE-PaaS framework, to provide 24/7 medical-center grade healthcare for patients returning home.

This home-care AI app records personal health information such as the age, weight, diagnosis record, blood sugar, and blood pressure. It also collect daily routine information such as eating, sleeping etc. With deep learning and machine learning algorithms, the app can predict the status of patients' blood sugar and prevent dangerous situations, and thereby informing the doctor of proper arrangements.

A benefit of using Advantech's WISE-STACK framework, is that all data is stored and encrypted on-premise in the hospital data center, separated from the hospital's other systems so it would have no impact on other facilities and no risk of leaking any data.

Result:
  1. Healthcare professionals can access and analyze patients' data remotely from the hospital to track the status of their patients.
  2. Via the AI app, an interactive online health consultant and 24 /7 chatbot provides healthcare solutions when patients are at home, and it also tracks and follows up with outpatients and disease updates.
  3. Significantly reduced risk of exposure to other diseases and infections and decreased the frequency of patients re-visiting the hospital within two weeks by 54%.

The Dean of Taichung Veterans General Hospital said we can all expect this kind of technology to be used for better chronic care management, and in the future expand it to more healthcare services.
