Digital Manufacturing Trends: Big Data
2018 is going to be the year that continues to build on the digital transformation in the manufacturing industry. Big data remains a largely untapped reservoir for manufacturing growth. Manufacturing has taken many positive steps when it comes to collecting data. Long gone are the days of writing everything down on paper. Progress is being made with eliminating disparage systems that cause users to perform duplicate data entry.
Manufacturers excel at data collection now, but it remains a challenge to get immediate, predictive, all-encompassing, fully integrated, accurate, and meaningful information delivered to the right people at the right time. Organizations historically have made decisions in silos. Executives rely on department heads to generate their own reports and form their own opinions and then they make decisions based on that. The trouble with this is it takes too long and decisions aren’t being made with the most up-to-date information.
Manufacturers are investing heavily in the capability to use data that’s already collected and just sitting in a system unused. The rise of big data is prompting organizations to think very purposefully about using it. Manufacturing companies are fast realizing that data and analytics can help in improving operational efficiencies and business processes. Big Data is here. The question is what your business is going to do about it. The best advice for every business is to bring in an outside Consultant that can help make sense of the data and help determine what the best way to get the analytics your business needs and relies on. Sometimes going back to the beginning is the best way to ensure you can cross the finish line. 2W Tech specializes in Manufacturing solutions and has IT Consultants on staff that can help your business work through this digital transformation.
