Dynamically adapt to multiple and changing optimization goals to maximize the throughput of many processes.
Reduce operation costs
Reduce operation costs by improving process efficiency and reducing machine downtime through autonomous machine calibration and optimization.
Enable new levels of automation
Intelligent control systems can tackle industrial processes that were previously too dynamic and complex to automate.
Manage resources efficiently
Make your people more efficient and your industrial processes more sustainable.
Automatically control dynamic and complex processes for maximum output, minimum downtime, and reduction in part failure.
Faster machine calibration and tuning exceeding operator-level precision.
Optimize movement and trajectory for robotic arms, bulldozer blades, forklifts, underground drilling, rescue vehicles and more.

Food extrusion line automation
Control the food extrusion process to optimize throughput while maintaining quality.
A consumer-packaged goods manufacturer produces food using >50 extrusion lines. Each extruder is different and extruder behavior and process inputs change over time.
Operators manually control the extruder. Changes in the feed composition and moisture content make it very difficult for human operators or existing control systems to extrude puffs of consistent quality.
Project Bonsai solution
Maximized the throughput of product produced while maintaining the quality standard.
Calibrate and Control Polymer Reactors
Reduce the amount of time and product loss when calibrating your polymer reactor.
Time required to achieve target polymer quality varies dramatically based on operator experience and dynamic ambient conditions.
Lengthy equipment calibration process required for each batch, and extensive experience required to control highly dynamic reaction.
Project Bonsai solution
Reduced the amount of time required to calibrate the simulation from several months to a few weeks.
Reduced the loss of non-prime grade polymer by 5%.
