Internship: Data engineering project - Equipment performance analysis and failure prediction - Ieper, Belgium

Internship: Data engineering project: Equipment performance analysis and failure prediction based on big data analysis and AI/ML algorithms 

Your future job

On the production floor of Melexis, microchips are being tested on a whole series of parameters in order to make sure only chips passing all necessary quality checks are being shipped to the customers. To optimise further the production processes, a ‘Smart Factory’ program is set up (following the ‘Industry 4.0’ concept), having as goal to further digitise and automate the activities, to increase the efficiency, and to manage and monitor end-to-end the machines and production processes.

The applications and equipment used within our manufacturing processes generate a huge amount of data that is streamed to and stored within a number of (realtime) databases and (big data) data lakes (in the cloud).

The purpose of this project is to foresee dashboards providing a (semi-)real time view on the performance of the machines and processes running on the production floor, based on this data.
