The Grain is a data science company focused on building AI applications for the industry.

We enable companies to have a lasting impact by making analytics usable, scalable and visible within operations. We unlock human potential by embracing technology and supporting your workforce in doing their day-to-day tasks better, faster, and smarter.

From sourcing raw materials to the shipment of finished goods, we figure out where in the value chain analytics can best be used to maximize impact.

We focus on 4 pillars:

  • Predictive Maintenance: improve asset performance and uptime by detecting anomalies and identifying the root causes of failures. Predict whether an asset will fail within a given timeframe and make proactive decisions rather than relying on reactive maintenance. Use failure predictions to optimize maintenance work and minimize impact on production.
  • Process Optimization: deep dive into historical process data, identify patterns and relationships across discrete process steps and inputs, and optimize the factors with the greatest impact on production yield. Understand why process inefficiencies arise and how to avoid them.
  • Production Planning & Scheduling: knowing what to make, when and where, in situations involving a complex product mix, uncertain demand and limited capacity, is a real planning challenge. We use mathematical optimization technology to solve this complex puzzle, factoring in customer orders, available capacity, resources, and all possible production constraints
  • Demand Forecasting & Inventory Optimization: get more accurate demand forecasts by applying machine learning techniques to analyse the impact of internal and external input variables. Improving your forecasting will help you to balance demand, production and distribution, and keep inventory levels to a minimum without running out of stock.
