With pressure on manufacturing businesses to improve productivity, profitability and innovation in the face of a global pandemic – ensuring that data assets are secure and easily accessible is among the most important tasks for manufacturers to consider. In this discussion, you will hear from Michael Watson from Microsoft and Martin Boyd of Profisee for specific steps you can take to put an established and reliable data foundation in place that can drive agility, effectiveness stay proactive with automated alerts and updates and success.
To successfully transform manufacturing into an increasingly digital and efficient business, it must embrace and harness data. But how do you do this if the information you’re using is insufficient, inconsistent, or incomplete? A successful manufacturing data management plan requires a concentration on strong governance to ensure that crucial information is gathered and stored promptly, and can be easily accessed and used at any time you need it.
Top performers in the manufacturing industry are increasingly adopting a complete data management approach that includes implementing a MDM hub to consolidate all critical information such as customer, vendor and product information, into a single repository. This allows teams to easily access the information they require, and helps teams to collaborate.
This also lets manufacturers create a digital track of what happens to components during production and is crucial to diagnosing production issues and enhancing tests and processes. It helps you determine the issues that occurred during the particular run of a machine and why. This allows you to react quicker in times of crisis and make you more resilient.
