18th August 2020
11:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time
The amount of data generated and consumed by multiple M4.0 technologies is set to explode across the manufacturing sector over the next few years. Yet, many industrial enterprises are still learning how to deal with the data they already have. What’s more, a lack of effective tools, internal standards, control structures, and skills may hinder their efforts to deliver continual improvements in optimization, productivity, efficiency, and quality.
However, there are also clear signs that many manufacturers are already harnessing advanced M4.0 technologies and embracing new predictive analytical approaches to achieve the business-changing predictive results they seek. The overwhelming majority of manufacturing companies now believe that using and analyzing their data more effectively has become essential to future business competitiveness.
This webinar highlights the results of the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s recent survey on the M4.0 Data Imperative, illustrating the importance of measuring and understanding the value of data across your organization. In addition, you will hear thought leadership perspectives on building a standardized enterprise OT data architecture and front-line insights from a leading industrial company.
