Manufacturing companies underutilize an abundance of available knowledge that could point to a more profitable future. What's needed is an information excellence plan for strategic management and analysis of large sets of data.
Most manufacturing companies don't holistically manage all of the data coming into their operations from a multitude of functions. Yet, within this information lies highly valuable knowledge that can help leaders and managers to see which decisions are most likely to achieve desired outcomes. By developing an enterprise-wide data-management and analysis strategy -- information excellence -- companies can efficiently harness this knowledge and empower all levels of the organization to make decisions that are most likely to achieve strategic goals.
In this webinar, attendees will hear the results of an IndustryWeek reader survey that documents a rising influx of data into manufacturing companies, a trend that will continue. Simultaneously, many companies lack processes to manage this flood of information and glean its highest value: Insight that helps leaders to make decisions that support strategic goals. The presentation will address this disconnect, describing in detail how using the right tools is crucial to transforming data into knowledge, and delivering the right information to the right people, in the right quantity, at the right time.
