Why data science experimentation drags out production optimization programs

Production optimization programs aim to increase production throughput and eliminate waste by leveraging data insights. But what happens when data identification – and creating analytical models relevant to use cases – becomes a job in its own right? Can out-of-the-box templates both support production optimization and reduce the need for data science experimentation? This blog explores […]

Do you have the needed data around yield, throughput, and quality to make sound operational decisions?

Here is a bold idea – your machines, your connected systems, your factories all diagnosing themselves and predicting needs before they affect production. What do you think when you read that? Are you thinking early and accurate identification of defects, improved production, optimized throughput, less waste and no product recalls? You should. Because that is what […]
