Proof of Concept - MFG-GPT!
In a follow-up to the original post Trailblazing AI for Manufacturing, there’s been some great progress on building out a proof of concept MFG-GPT chatbot.
Some of the details:
Created a Local Web and Database Server
Security and Trust is important for these initiatives, more on that in future posts
We ran a Salesforce Report on a customers Repair History and exported the data to Excel
5,000+ records over the past 5 years with 30+ columns
Like any AI initiative, Data is key. Clean data matters.
Some time was spent better Labeling key fields, formatting values, etc…
This data was loaded into a local PostgreSQL Database and our MFG-GPT codebase pointed to it for training
We’re using LangChain framework combined with OpenAI APIs
After some trial and error, we were able to get it connected and working with the dataset
Next came the fun part - Prompting!
As our techies started getting more comfortable with asking “natural language questions” it was awesome to see the results!
Let’s see it in action!
What’s coming up next?
In our next sprint as we evolve this minimum viable product (MVP) of MFG-GPT, we are going to tackle the following:
Move codebase to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to get more speed and scalability
Expand our Data Sources
We’ve been able to interact with files (Word, Excel and PDF)
Demo above was connecting to a local Database
Next up is API connectivity to Salesforce
Note: This customer we are working with has CloudERP built on Salesforce
So now we’ll be able to access CRM + ERP data with ChatGPT.
Future sprints will look to
Identify what additional Models and Algorithms we should consider
Multiple Data Sources (Data Cloud?!?)
Security and Trust Considerations
Accessibility - how do we deploy for a client to use
Oh by the way if you’ve made it this far…
XG Analytics (XGA.AI) is another company within our portfolio that has pivoted to focus 100% on Data and AI! More here →
