Good Stuff from Sanjay v2.0 — I’m Sanjay Chopra, Co-Founder and CEO of Cognistx. Welcome to Cognistx’s second installment of Good Stuff from Sanjay, series, where we dive into a topic each month that’s top-of-mind for me (and our company). Hopefully, this will become a resource for you as well, as you look to AI (with Cognistx as your go-to AI partner) to solve for your company’s specific business problems.

Production Decision Making: Manufactured items are more complex than ever, and they require hundreds of people, dozens of supplies, thousands of pieces, and countless decisions. Consumer demand and competition means just-in-time manufacturing, faster design improvements, and global sourcing. That’s where AI can swoop in to save the day, offering:
Design Research: Creating new products is an expensive process, and one that often results in them falling flat. With thousands of specifications, regulations, and customer insights to navigate, information can be hard to quantify and share company-wide. Let AI help with this tricky process by introducing:
Product Support: Manufacturing and just-in-time delivery means people can customize their products, which is great for the end user but often causes headaches on the manufacturing side. Bring AI into the mix to provide:
We’ve loved getting to partner with PPG to optimize a portion of their manufacturing process as they work to save money and time in their paint production. For them, any marginal improvement in the paint formulation or adjustments process means thousands of dollars in savings.
