Big Data Technology in the Production Line
- Learn about the utility of Big Data from the experts and find out how you can make the most of the information you collect
- Hear from renowned speakers from around the world, including the USA, and see how data is handled by leading corporations
- Find out about the newest developments in technology and how Big Data is used and analyzed internationally
Data is everywhere – every machine used in a facility and on a production line is capable of producing large amounts of detailed information. The key is finding out what is the most important and how best to use it. The VDI conference ‘Big Data Technology in the Production Line’ will shed light on the challenges and opportunities Big Data presents.
What’s the big deal about Big Data?
Technology now allows us to capture unprecedented levels of data about machines and technological processes. However, traditional data processing can often have difficulties handling the amount or complexity of the information. Big Data uses advanced analytics to create predictive models, for example, and determines which pieces of information are the most useful to achieve positive results on the production line.
The VDI conference ‘Big Data Technology in the Production Line’ will present the newest developments and technology in Big Data. You will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues and engage with renowned international speakers who will cover themes such as why data is important and how it is handled by leading corporations.
A wide range of topics and themes will be discussed, including:
- Advancements in Big Data and how to stay ahead in a fast-moving field
- Preventive maintenance for the optimization of production lines
- Data analysis and evaluation in conjunction with new sensor technology and IT Systems
- The future of Big Data and how current developments and technologies will influence data gathering and analysis in the future
