Data challenges in the manufacturing industry

Can you recall what automating processes was like 15 years ago? As someone involved in the manufacturing industry, it doesn’t matter whether you’re part of a small, medium or large scale organization, you might be facing some challenges dealing with data. That’s because manufacturing systems were not designed to manage huge volumes of information.

And to compete in the modern manufacturing world, you need to integrate and contextualize your data types from different areas of your factory, like sensors, databases, controllers, etc., to an analytic platform. The real value for you is not data itself, but your ability to improve your decision-making with information that you’re able to view in multiple business scenarios instantly and react in real time. Easier said than done, right?

Problems when using different solutions

Quite often, the information required for operations and analytics is spread across different siloed systems, impeding a 360º view of relevant data by employees. This may be your case, where you’re trying to mitigate different platform integration as much as possible. Unfortunately, typical data warehouses in the market are complex, expensive, non-scalable or outdated and require constant experts’ interventions in order to keep working, wasting time and money.

As data usage becomes more complex over time, you’ll need to keep integrating an ever-growing number of sources to your data warehouse, each one of them with their own connection and data structures. This usually means wasting resources on complex ETL processes, losing data or not being able to centralize it efficiently, all of which hinders transforming data into business value. Additionally, you might find yourself investing a considerable amount of money on database configuration, management, tuning and monitoring all the infrastructure needed to store your data.
