Engagement Practice

 

Our focus is industrial and commercial markets in three practice areas: Research, Data In Motion, and Data Science. We help clients integrate advanced technologies into operations and products.

 

 We work with clients at any phase of our engagement cycle. Many engagements are with a single phase anywhere along the journey or a number of successive phases. We recommend the plan and the client decides where our team can deliver the most value. 

 

We also have clients that retain us for a long term as their advanced innovation lab for research, development, and production deployments.

Roadmap

Identify business areas and product groups where an injection of advanced technology brings outsized impact.

Concept

Define high value projects based on  the roadmap. Develop business cases for winning solutions or product concepts.

Feasibility

Research the technical requirements, and execute experiments to evaluate the probability of technical and commercial success.

Prototype

Build an Alpha of a working model, data stream, or software that satisfies the defined use case. De-risk the project.

Solution

Productize the prototype technology. Develop and deploy software, AI or streams into production flows.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

We make your products smarter, your processes more efficient, and your technology a differentiator from competition.

We tackle the thorny problems in core industries where our focused experience with commercializing academic research multiplies the power of your team. We work with you on the "next big thing" or on incremental improvements to existing products or processes.

DATA IN MOTION

We connect your data from different sources in real-time with focus on data integrity. What does it mean?

As data comes in from devices, production, orders, and users every second, we merge it into connected streams and serve it back to applications in real-time. The key ingredient is data integrity. We apply mathematical models, filters, AI, and data science techniques to guarantee:

ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, TIMELINES, CONSISTENCY, VALIDITY, AND UNIQUENESS.

DATA SCIENCE

We specialize in developing business simulations using digital twins to create a sandbox for testing business scenarios and analyze operational optimizations. The simulations help you answer difficult questions about how to best structure aspects of you business before committing to the expensive real world changes.  

 

Another specialty is modeling key metrics into a single score that is an accurate descriptor of the health of your business, a process, or performance of key teams. It is like a Grade Point Average number for your business in real-time.

 

We work within the entire spectrum of data science and advanced analytics. Our special focus is on mathematical and composite models. We integrate analytical approaches with the standard tools of data science including neural networks and ensemble models, and graph analysis.
