Case Study

Predictive Maintenance in the Automotive Industry to ensure uninterrupted operations in manufacturing plants


Goal of the company

Our client, a prominent automotive manufacturer, faced significant challenges that threatened the continuity of its operations, necessitating the implementation of an up-to-date, connected monitoring system. Among its requirements:

  • Dealing with Costly Machinery Breakdowns: The client was incurring costs of €532,000 per hour due to unplanned machine breakdowns and downtime in its automotive manufacturing plants, so it was looking for a solution to improve the continuity of its operations.
  • Reduction of Plant Downtime and Waste: Uncertainty regarding the status of machines caused unplanned downtime and avoidable waste, leading to significant financial burdens and compromising production results and overall quality standards.
  • Optimizing Operations and Improving Competitiveness: To overcome these challenges, the client sought a solution that would reduce downtime and waste, optimize operations, and enhance its competitive advantage.

Main Scops features used

  • Integrated Scops solution with IoT Measurement, Wireless Connectivity and AI-powered Data Analysis: Scops provided a comprehensive solution including Internet of Things (IoT) technology for state-of-the-art measurement sensors, a robust wireless data infrastructure and a sophisticated software system powered by the power of Artificial Intelligence. With Scops, the company implemented Smart Predictive Maintenance, addressing the need to optimize operational efficiency and maximize plant productivity.
  • Artificial Intelligence Analysis of Multiple Data Points: The state-of-the-art Scops platform integrates and analyzes multiple data points, including crucial parameters such as electricity consumption, temperature variations, and machine vibration. By collecting and analyzing this vast amount of machine-generated data, Scops facilitates continuous 24-hour monitoring and predictive maintenance, helping customers reduce unplanned downtime by 40 percent.


In the highly competitive environment of the automotive industry, where every minute of plant downtime can result in considerable financial losses, our client was faced with pressing challenges that required an innovative solution to ensure uninterrupted operation in its production facilities.

By implementing Scops' Predictive Maintenance, the client achieved significant cost savings, avoiding unplanned downtime and production losses. The implementation of the Scops solution  which combines state-of-the-art IoT Sensors and advanced Data Analysis via Artificial Intelligence, enabled the customer to gain a comprehensive, real-time view of machine performance, critical parameters and operating conditions. This unprecedented visibility has enabled the customer to make informed and proactive decisions regarding machine maintenance, avoiding breakdowns, unplanned downtime and optimizing resource utilization.

In addition, Scops' Predictive Maintenance has enabled the customer to predict maintenance needs in advance, enabling efficient scheduling of activities. This reduced plant downtime and optimized machine availability, ensuring continuous production flow and reducing overall operating costs.

What our customers say about Scops

"Amazing tool"

Although in service for a very short time, it has already allowed us to: intercept plant drifts and therefore anticipate/avoid the occurrence of a severe failure on a strategic plant; identify areas of energy efficiency, and then establish specific project activities.

We particularly appreciate how simple it is to integrate Scops with company tools and how easy it is for operators to use.

Luigi G. - Plant and Maintenance Manager
"Towards a digital future driven by data"

We have found a tool to guide us in project choices, energy efficiency, plant management, and maintenance. A vital aspect is the passion, availability, and collaboration of the Quick Algorithm Team.

We have developed this software to our needs and requirements, with great design, management, and use flexibility. It suited our requests perfectly. We have developed a path to monitor the consumption and performance of our plants and digitize, manage, and monitor the maintenance performance of various assets.

"Scops in support of energy-saving"

Centralized management of all energy consumption, with anomaly detection, plant heatmap, public dashboard, simulation of future consumption, etc. High level of user support, both during the implementation phase and subsequently.

A new approach to the use of data, automation of time-consuming operations, user satisfaction, and tangible benefits obtained quickly.

We centralized different sources in one software.

Silvia C. - ICT
"Scops - the owl guarding energy consumption"

The experience is very positive, especially concerning the continuous assistance and support of the developer team for implementing the platform and its constant integration with new functions.

The software integrates essential functions to comply with the regulatory framework regarding collecting and classifying energy data with advanced artificial intelligence functions that have accelerated and improved the energy management system.

With Scops, we centralized different data sources in one platform, customized to specific needs. We used algorithms to forecast and manage consumption.

Alessandro L. - Energy Manager
"Scops, an effective tool"

We have been able to use the product on different channels and have always found excellent results. This is why I also recommended its use to the company's international teams.

The product is easy to use, has all the features my company requires, and is constantly evolving. Furthermore, customer support is highly professional, helpful, and efficient.
