Speech Title: Applications of Big Data in Manufacturing Industry Supply Chain Management
Abstract: Big Data is defined as exceptionally large data sets, potentially numbering into billions of rows and parameters. In manufacturing, big data can include data collected at every stage of production, including data from machines, devices, and operators. With big data analytics in manufacturing, manufacturers can discover new information and identify patterns that enable them to improve processes, increase supply chain efficiency and identify variables that affect production.
Big Data Analytics in manufacturing is about using a common data model to combine structured business system data like inventory transactions and financial transactions with structured operational system data like alarms, process parameters, and quality events, with unstructured internal and external data. Improving efficiency across the business helps a manufacturing company control costs, increase productivity, and boost margins. Automated production lines are already standard practice for many, but manufacturing big data can exponentially improve line speed and quality.
Big data combined a set of data usually referred as large and complex datasets; enables the company to review real-time data flows. Digitized supply chains have the potential to dramatically lower costs, reduce lead time and increase product availability. Digitization makes the supply chain more effective, agile and responsive by sharing knowledge and collaborating complex supplier networks. As a result, this research contributes the practitioners to identify the current situation of their business and it will help them to take timely, fast and better decision.
