Manufacturing waste makes up 10% of global GDP. Instrumental collects, transforms and presents data that reduces product defects, factory travel, scrap, rework, cycles and more. By enabling teams to find and fix issues faster, we reduce inefficiencies and waste.

Instrumental is a manufacturing optimization system that leverages artificial intelligence to transform data captured on assembly lines into insights that increase speed, reduce costs and improve quality. Instrumental achieves these core metric improvements by collecting images at key assembly states, intelligently transforming that data to detect defects and process shifts, and contextually presenting insights that enable engineers to close the loop by implementing and validating a corrective action.
