WEBINAR: Using Qlik to Drive Industry 4.0

June 28, 2018, 10:30AM CDT

Industry 4.0 promises to transform organizations with levels of insight previously unattainable with ERP-centric approaches. However, the purpose-built edge devices and applications are also creating more data fragmentation than ever before. While these individual systems all have their own interfaces and big data stores for analyzing an individual process, it can be daunting to look across processes and organizations. One of our customers had to get data from fifty-seven systems to create a corporate quality dashboard – even though they had SAP fully implemented.

In this webinar we show how we use Qlik to blend the data from all of your data sources to provide comprehensive views of Quality, Production, Machine Efficiency, Labor Efficiency, Maintenance, Supplier Scorecarding and more.

WEBINAR: Improving Quality with Industry 4.0

June 21, 2018, 10:30AM CDT

The avalanche of data generated by Industry 4.0 presents a huge opportunity to improve your organization’s cost of quality. This can done by being able to respond to issues in near real-time, through predictive modeling, and by supercharging continuous improvement tools with improved data. The huge challenge with this avalanche of data is being able to overcome the fragmented nature of the data to provide comprehensive views that are tailored to each role in the organization.  

In this webinar we show how we have overcome this challenge to drive improvements as radical as cutting scrap costs by 50% in 12 months.
