Our Team

We help manufacturers implement data driven continuous improvement processes

Our combined experience in support of your efforts

 

Quva was founded as a spin off from University of Tampere data science program in 2010. Early focus was on AI and machine learning in imaging but soon after shifted to industry use cases, especially in lean manufacturing. Our innovative Quva Flow™ platform was co-developed with manufacturing clients to ensure practical application of the production data and analytics.

Our team of developers and data scientists have developed a solid understanding in turning production line sensor data into actionable insights.
