This presentation was originally developed over 10 years ago to highlight ways to make use of data in manufacturing to improve operational results. Key points include:
Data is an important tool in reducing cost.
We often focus on less important data.
The things we measure for result improvement are the same as those we should measure for start-ups.
Engineering plays a key role in the design of processes, the acquisition of data, and the level of long-term costs
It takes a lot of data to tell the whole story.
Written by Eric Allen of Data Driven Manufacturing, this presentation is meant to give an overview to those starting down a path to use data for improving manufacturing results.
