DETROIT, April 19, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Andonix proudly introduces Andi, the AI-powered manufacturing chatbot designed to bring AI augmentation to factory workers. Andi is an advanced natural language processing solution driven by AI technology, enabling factory workers to engage in human-like conversations and request expert help and support from the chatbot. Andi can assist with tasks such as automatically monitoring machine and process performance, solving problems, and generating action plans, checklists, and work instructions.
Andi can also learn company-specific information like machine operation and troubleshooting manuals, quality systems, HR manuals, and more, providing instant support for specific questions like how to fix particular machine failure codes, identifying the top three problems causing the most downtime in a machine, determining the FTQ for the last hour, or even clarifying company vacation policies. Andi offers unprecedented efficiency, productivity, and real-time guidance for factory teams, streamlining operations and continuously delivering data-driven insights to improve manufacturing outcomes.
Execution Performance Enhanced
Factory worker teams, and managers face numerous challenges, such as monitoring machine performance, addressing equipment downtime, maintaining product quality, ensuring worker safety, and managing resources effectively. These tasks often require real-time decision-making, data analysis, and communication with the workforce, placing significant demands on managers' time and expertise.
Additionally, managers often need more resources, such as time, personnel, and budget, making it difficult to effectively address all performance monitoring and problem-solving needs. Constant firefighting, crisis management, and managing multiple stakeholders simultaneously leave teams with no time to spare.
Andonix customers have frequently voiced concerns about inefficient communication. Following trending issues and prioritizing urgent matters versus important ones can be extremely challenging using WhatsApp, Email, SMS, phone calls, etc. Communication gaps between different departments, teams, and personnel can hinder the timely exchange of information, slowing down problem detection and resolution.

With Andi, customers can access a manufacturing expert on demand when needed, without delays or constraints; Andi can send timely automatic notifications when a problem or anomaly is detected when monitoring a machine or process. Whether on WhatsApp, Web, iOS, or Android, factory teams can instantly consume performance metrics and access expert help to make informed decisions to solve problems in a way that was impossible just a few months ago.
