Abstract: All manufacturers would like to improve product quality, increase productivity, reduce waste and minimize variability with only minor adjustments to their manufacturing process. Advanced data analytics can help. This article examines how, armed with “big data,” manufacturers can identify patterns, trends, and correlations among various manufacturing process steps and inputs. A brief sidebar discusses how enterprise resource planning software and big data analytics can work hand-in-hand to help manufacturers optimize performance.
