Manufacturing
process simulation
modelling

Creating and analysing computerised, mathematical, or statistical models of a physical system that can be used to predict its performance and model what-if scenarios.

Statistical data
analytics

Coherent, accurate, efficient, and effective statistical data analysis can be used to significantly improve and control process operations and performance.

Reliability
analysis & prediction

Reliability systems analysis can be used to construct a distribution model to understand the times-to-failure of a system based on the failure distributions of the individual components.

Statistical
process control

Statistical process controls are used to gather statistics on the behaviour and performance of an industrial process and, using decision algorithms, can assess whether it is necessary to implement changes. PEM can develop & facilitate clients in the use of multivariate Statistical Process Control processes, including profile monitoring & variable selection techniques.

Experimental design
& process optimisation

Experimental design can be used to make systematic changes to a product or process, analyse the results of the changes and use this to identify the appropriate parameters to achieve optimum results.
