Data is everything - at least this is one of the main messages of the ongoing industrial revolution. Manufacturing companies all over the world are expanding their digital infrastructure and knowledge on data analysis in the hope of increasing their KPIs with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Although several well-designed data-driven solutions are available, the most crucial part, data preparation is still not fully supported. In this paper a framework is presented for processing sensor data of machining processes with variable cycle times in an unstable environment. Traditional and novel AI algorithms are tested on the data of a vulcanization process from the automotive industry, namely from tire manufacturing’s curing phase. The process in question consists of several subprocesses, and the quality of curing is mostly dependent of the status of a specific type of machine tool. Conventional methods (e.g., examining the cured product manually) are currently used for failure recognition, however the examination is only feasible after a long delay due to the extreme level of heat, which leads to unnecessary and unwanted scrap production. Therefore, a more sophisticated and complex approach is required to increase quality score. A combination of mathematical methods is proposed combining t-SNE feature representation, convolutional neural network, and linear programming optimization. The model highly relies on the tool’s continuous degradation characteristics. The threshold for the given binary classification is set by maximizing the accuracy of the detection model. The main contribution of the research is the method of inconsistent sensor data manipulation which supports a unique combination of AI models for early failure recognition.
