In the past ‘few’ years, everybody has been building so-called dashboards. In factories, people keep track of production quantities, wasted materials, unscheduled downtime, utilization of key equipment and many more data items, over shorter or longer periods. But why?

In short:

  • To really improve production processes, we need data from different sources
  • Dashboards are needed to get insight into this data and convert it into information
  • Machine Learning can help us analyse the data, and if applied in the right way it may even show unexpected correlation
