From small to smart - How Data Usage can improve Value Creation

Improving value creation with data usage - Workshop

The VDI workshop “From small to smart – how data usage can improve value creation” deals with questions around data usage through the value chain and how to address associated challenges. On the basis of best practice examples and directly applicable cases, participants will learn how to implement data driven improvements in their companies’ products.

Paving the way for Industry 4.0

Digital Operations, or Industry 4.0 as it is also known, is one of the fastest growing and most visible trends in manufacturing and logistics. From shop floor management and the handling of goods to value chain optimization, most aspects of modern manufacturing and logistics businesses will be affected by the utilization of intelligent data. These approaches will take operational efficiency and quality to the next level.

In other industries, data-driven operations and logistics have not taken as strong of a hold, thanks not least to other highly optimized processes such as Lean, Six, Sigma, etc. The challenge is to build effective initiatives on top of existing data and infrastructure that quickly demonstrate the benefits in cost and quality.
