The role of data in manufacturing has traditionally been understated. Manufacturing generates about a third of all data today, and this is certainly going to increase significantly in the future. Data forms the backbone of all Digital Manufacturing technologies, which will be the centerpiece of the strategy for advancing manufacturing in the 21st century.
In addition to have ordinary financial and inventory databases, manufacturers in a big way take sensor measurements of dozens or hundreds of environmental and process variables inside a factory. All that data can then be used to predict model equipment failure rates, streamline inventory management, identify energy-inefficient components and even optimize factory floor space, among many other applications.
For accurate forecasting, identifying customer needs, efficient supply chain management and inventory planning, manufacturers must measure, analyze, and derive insights from the data used by each lines of their business.
