Leveraging Advanced Analytics & Digital to Improve Quality

Executive Round Table & Panel Discussion
Wednesday, January 22, 2020
11:00 AM - 1:30 PM, Santa Clara

The risk of High Tech, Medical Device and other technology-based product manufacturers being disrupted by companies that are "born digital" is now a constant threat. Over the years, traditional companies have collected mountains of raw data such as design information, manufacturing and service issues, sales trends, and more.

Exploiting this data and evolving their value proposition is one of the main challenges as they seek to digitize their business. Deploying advanced analytics and digital platforms are key to competitive advantage.

One analyst's research recently said that companies that aren’t investing heavily in analytics by 2020 probably won’t be in business in 2021.

  • How do you apply advanced analytics frameworks to mine PLM data as you seek to find cost, efficiency and quality improvements?
