Datapred : Machine learning software for direct material procurement

 Meet them from 1 to 5 April 2019

Commodities, energy and raw materials (« direct materials » for short) represent the bulk of direct costs for industrial companies. Yet most procurement teams rely on dated methods for deciding when and how much to buy — such as replenishment rules, market research or human expertise. Coupled with increased instability on direct material markets, this results in inflated costs and increased risk exposure. Very unfair, given the time, intelligence and effort invested by procurement teams.

Datapred’s dynamic procurement software uses machine learning to generate an optimal purchasing program shaving 3-5% off your direct material costs. Datapred also provides the corresponding risk management tools and hedging instruments.

Product/service description

Neural Concept Shape (NCS) is the commercial and industrial implementation of a software package developed at EPFL’s computer vision laboratory over the last 3 years. NCS is the first Deep-Learning software specifically tailored for Computer Assisted Engineering application.

Our software allows the engineer to extract maximum value from simulation data, allowing him to explore an infinite number of designs without calling back the expensive simulator and to automatically optimize a shape given a set of performance goals. Our software searches the space of shapes to find this best compromise, while saving the engineer time, energy and economical cost.

We have applications in the following industries : naval, aerospace, energy but also automotive.

Business cases, UAVs : We collaborated with a Swiss drone manufacturer and preliminary experiments showed that we can achieve a drag reduction of 13% on a UAV designed, saving 100 hours of works and 4 months on development time.

Business case, Hydrofoils : The hydrofoil was optimised to achieve a desired target in terms of total lift, pitch momentum, and roll momentum, while minimising the drag function. We integrated the flap design directly into our optimization framework, which makes it possible to obtain exactly the right lift for the boat to take‐off. We obtained much better performances and the new design will be used for the next races.
