Sight Machine is a developer of a digital manufacturing platform designed to address critical challenges in quality and productivity throughout the enterprise. The company's platform uses artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics that allow manufacturers to use all of their data, no matter where or in what format it's created, using an automated and systematic data intake process that acquires, refines and contextualizes data, creating a digital twin of each part and process, enabling companies to gain real-time visibility and actionable insights for every part, machine, line and plant throughout a manufacturing enterprise.
Sight Machine specializes in manufacturing analytics and used by Global 500 companies to make decisions about their operations. Sight Machine's analytics platform, purpose-built for discrete and process manufacturing, uses artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics to help address critical challenges in quality and productivity throughout an enterprise.
Founded in Michigan in 2011 and expanded to the Bay Area in 2012, Sight Machine thinks of itself as fusing the spirit of Silicon Valley technology innovation with rock-solid Detroit manufacturing. Their team includes the founders of Slashdot along with leadership from early Yahoo, Palantir, Tesla, Cisco, IBM, McKinsey, and Apple.
Sight Machine's platform is based on an API which is applied into an industry's software and current data collection infrastructure. The API collects the data and develops its analyzed data and insights across the manufacturing process. Sight Machine does not list a license fee on website, however they offer a quote, which suggests the cost is dependent on the complexity of the manufacturing process.
In the case where a company does not already have a data collection service, Sight Machine offers their FactoryTX Edge and FactoryTX Cloud to help companies extend the digital and monitoring service through their enterprise. FactoryTX Edge offers edge monitoring and the FactoryTX Cloud offers data compression and encryption for corporations. Both of these services would come with additional costs including installation, virtual machine usage and servicing, but none of these fees are listed.
Traditional competitors to Sight Machines platform would include enterprise resource planning companies, such as SAP, Oracle, Netsuite and Epicor; and manufacturing execution systems providers, such as ABB, Siemens, Dassault Systemes and Rockwell Automation. However, Sight Machines claims none of these companies are competitors, as their platform integrates data from these and other systems. Sight Machine's estimated annual revenue is $3 million.
Other competitors include Seeq, which provides software and services to convert industrial data into information for business decisions; Drishti, which provides software for problem solving in manufacturing; Bit Stew Systems, which offers a platform for software defined operations for the industrial internet; FogHorn Systems, which provides edge intelligence software for industrial and commercial IoT applications; Wi-Next, which provides an industrial edgeware wireless platform to power IoT and fog computing; ICONICS, which offers a manufacturing intelligence software solution; and OAG Analytics, which provides an AI and machine learning based analytics platform to energy operators.
