Problem description

  • One of the steps in the tyre production process involves curing in a mould. This step will give the tyre its final properties and shape
  • A new mould is required for new product lines and tyre sizes. Producing a mould can be both time consuming and expensive
  • The final dimensions of the tyre after mounting on a rim depend on many parameters, such as the materials used, tyre construction and mould dimensions. Accurately predicting these dimensions can be a real challenge


  • Apply Advanced Data Analytics to increase the accuracy of the tyre dimension predictions

Assignment Proposal

  • Data collection, cleaning, and preparation
  • Apply different Artificial Intelligence algorithms to correlate input parameters with the tyre dimensions (output)
  • Sensitivity analysis of the input parameters
  • Documentation and sharing of the internship results
