RFP Title


Experts in Industrial Process Data Management and Analytics
RFP Description
NineSigma, on behalf of a Global Chemicals Manufacturer, is seeking Subject Matter Experts to provide insights into methods or systems for managing, synchronizing and analyzing data from high volume manufacturing process streams. Experts from across the landscape of industry, consulting and academia are invited to respond by filling out the short Expert Capabilities Form linked in the “Items to Be Submitted” section below.

Industrial manufacturing processes can generate huge amounts of data through the course of normal operations. Input data funnels in from a wide range of unrelated sources relaying information about equipment, materials and operating environments. Unfortunately, often times this data is not captured and consolidated in a comprehensive fashion, instead individually funneling through monitoring tools, logic control systems (e.g. PLCs, etc.), and even simple spreadsheets. This makes the overall task of analyzing and correlating the data with appropriate in-process actions difficult, if not impossible.


NineSigma’s client seeks to develop a better understanding of the current and existing technologies and capabilities in place to address better data management for their processing operations. Experts in this area are sought to act as consultants or solution providers in this area.


Specifically, top respondents may be invited to engage with the client in a variety of opportunities, including:

• Consult and educate the client on appropriate data management strategies

• Recommend appropriate tools and partners for achieving success

• Implement data capture and consolidation for process monitoring, working with partners as appropriate

• Conduct appropriate analyses based on client’s data

• Implement process monitoring strategy

• Real-time process monitoring

• Multivariate statistical analyses and projections

○ Identification of core variables for monitoring

○ Correlation of data output with appropriate action in process

○ Determining normal state(s) from process data

○ Impact of input variables on end product

○ Experimental design and predictive modeling

• Data storage and access strategies

• Software, systems and algorithms for data analytics


Potential experts may be involved in a wide range of technical disciplines, including – but not limited to:

• Plant operations management

• Data mining
