Dangerous Goods classification is one of the critical activities for any organization to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and also ensuring not to harm persons and environment. The classification of Dangerous goods is a skill which is getting scarce in organizations due to various reasons like availability of SME’s and knowledge gaps etc. Use of Machine Learning and Deep Learning for Dangerous Goods management offers a very good opportunity to compliment the resources who are already working on the DG classification. Based on DG based preliminary classifications a model can be trained over a period of time to provide you the information as accurately as possible.
It started some two years back when I started exploring Data Science (Python, R, Azure ML & Knime) to understand the new possibilities for EHS, which I slowly expanded by refreshing my IoT skills, Big Data (Hortonworks / HDInsight) & Cloud skills (AWS & Azure) and Blockchain skills. Then I started exploring various Digital Transformation books like The Digital Transformation Play book by David L Rogers and Leading Digital by HBR. After spending some two years on this topic today I am finally publishing a Not A very short video on “Digital Transformation of EHS”. There is immense possibilities but the challenge lies in how efficiently the organizations embarks into EHS Digital Journey without impacting their existing processes . A solid core that bring efficiency through standardization along quick adjustments on its structure like the ones recommended by Gartner in year 2014 – The BiModal transformation model ensuring stability and agility. Below is a video of – Not a very short presentation on Digital Transformation of EHS. Do take time to revisit at small intervals so that you don’t get overwhelmed with my talk. All most all the topics dealt in the presentation are covered as a separate blog posts – do visit the site if you are seeing for a detailed use case around those topics.
Recently a friend of mine told me that their organization is embarking on to the journey of digital transformation. I said wow, what exactly it is doing for which his response was that their implementation of portal system for logging records. Does it quality to be called a digital transformation ? is it so ? Actually, for many, digital transformation is digitization of their processes which can be a mere implementation of IT tools replacing their legacy modes of operation. Indeed digitization does not advocate replacement of legacy applications with new age tools. Rather it advocates tight integration of organization competitive tools which have evolved over years with new age technologies to stream line the user experience and operational excellence.
Sometime back I wrote a blog on Use of AI / ML for managing Incident Management, it has received good response. I have received many requests to know in detail on how to implement the same and details surrounding it and some even requested me to share the source code.
In this current blog and series of upcoming blogs I would like to share some short course on Introduction to Data Science and how it is used for managing the EHS issues. There are many relevant issues which can be solved using AI / ML, be it Descriptive Statistics, Predictive Analysis of incidents / exceptions for air permits or equipment based pollution deviations or even customer / supplier perception of the risks around the products being sold by the organization, automatic classification of dangerous goods based on past history, prediction of product compliance based on source and many more proprietary uses.
I would like to take the example of Incident Management / Risk Assessment to create two separate case studies on how those can be used to manage operational risk in major industries. I am going to use tools like Python or Knime / R & Azure Hope it helps all. I got 90 days free trail access of SAP Cloud Platform wherein I can access Leonardo, IoT, AI / ML platform, I am not sure if i can demo the scenario.
I am providing a Introductory video on Introduction to Data Science for helping those who are not aware of the content surrounding AI / ML. Do share your inputs / comments which help me to prepare content. I do not promise the content to be available immediately but based on my free time I would like to create blog posts / video sessions on a regular basis.
There has been some changes happening in the field of SAP EHS being it introduction of S/4HANA; S/4HANA Cloud based EHS solutions. Be it Business Suite applications or Product Compliance suite for S/4HANA Cloud, it is changing the way the EHS is working till now. In this short video I tried to give an overview on different EHS business processes covering all modules of EHS which have been introduced till date excepting for modules like SAP Carbon Impact 4.0 or Tools like Document Analyzer, Web based MSDS hosing, SAP Product and REACH compliance, CfP, Data Editor etc.
