Tesla Motors, Watts Water, and Sager Creek Vegetable Company may produce very different products, but they have Tableau in common. In this video, manufacturing leaders discuss how Tableau has helped them improve production processes and identify areas of opportunity.
Will Bishop from Tesla is all too familiar with nagging issues that hurt production for weeks, even months. “We were just looking at data that we've only recently been able to look at,” says Will. “It (Tableau) showed us stuff that was totally surprising and guided us in the right direction.”
"You're talking 20,000 lines of transactional data over just a couple days," says Matthew Hughes of Sager Creek Vegetable Company, a Del Monte company. "And to do that for an entire plant where there are 300 people and 100 assets, three shifts—it's amazing. It just gets me excited to think we can actually crunch that and answer that question."
And when Kris Munson from Watts Water talks to other companies who aren't using Tableau, he asks, “What are you waiting for? You may not know what you’re going to do with it today, but a month later you’re going to ask yourself how you ever lived without it.”
