21st Century Manufacturing Analytics: Building the Foundation of a Scalable & Sustainable Industry 4.0 Digital Transformation Program
Industry 4.0 or Digital Transformation; everyone is trying to figure out how to put together programs and approaches that will scale initially, and are sustainable while being able to accommodate new technologies and approaches in the future.
It’s no wonder people are confused.
The Manufacturing Leadership Forum delivers real-world insight from those who have successfully implemented digital transformation programs using manufacturing analytics within their organizations.
Potential of Analytics in Industry 4.0
Manufacturing is the original denizen of one of the cornerstones of Industry 4.0 – big data, creating and storing more data in a day than most companies do in a month. Unlike business data, few resources have been focused on unlocking and harnessing the value of manufacturing data. Dr. Colegrove will discuss how manufacturing analytics as a compelling first step to realizing the promise of Industry 4.0.by unlocking the full potential of that data.

Scaling Manufacturing Analytics For Actionable Intelligence – From SPC to Machine Learning
Pro-actively monitor process stability and health with the manufacturing analytics to detect and respond to potential issues in real time before final product is affected is part of what Industry 4.0 promises to deliver. Albemarle Corporation will discuss how the organization moved from reacting and responding to problems after they impacted product quality to detecting and preventing issues. Mr. Alexander will discuss the challenges faced at his plant, the organizational and technical approaches to solving them, and the results of those efforts.

More than ever, manufacturers must quickly adapt and respond as markets, technologies, ecosystems, and competitors change. To do so, they have dialed up their efforts about how to leverage the vast amounts of data at their disposal to help address their business challenges in new, innovative ways. Yet, many companies greatly struggle to understand, pilot, and then scale digital solutions. At a time when organizations are emphasizing digital transformation execution and scalability, what factors separate those who succeed from those who struggle?
Topics discussed will include identifying and prioritizing projects, justifying a return on investment, investing effectively, and working with solution providers.
