Tasman Sinkware has partnered with Australian company Ailytic to deliver improvements in its manufacturing efficiency with automation, artificial intelligence and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The company is investing in the further development of its South Australian manufacturing plant and securing South Australian jobs.

Manufacturing under the Oliveri brand name, Tasman Sinkware produces a range of sinks and distributes associated kitchen and laundry hardware to the Australian market, as well as exporting around the world, from its manufacturing headquarters in Regency Park, South Australia.

“We chose Ailytic to pilot some key technologies that are on the cutting edge and liked their rapid deployment suite of intelligent decision systems, including wireless smart factory sensors, scheduling and optimisation software,” said John Woodcock, Tasman’s general manager of operations.

“These will enable our focus on improved real time metrics, operational control and forward decision-making about what to produce day-in, day-out, considering increasing demand.”

“Traditional manufacturing industries, including small to medium sized businesses now have potential to utilise technologies previously only available to larger companies due to cost and complexity,” said James Balzary, CEO of Ailytic.

“Tasman Sinkware have done an amazing job streamlining operations, reducing cost and becoming more energy efficient and now it is about replacing legacy processes with automated and optimised systems that can empower operators and management to make more informed decisions. These capabilities can be deployed in hours and instantly deliver insights that increase efficiency and reduce costs.”
