Manufacturing analytics

Manufacturing is an industry with many moving parts: human resources, raw materials, capital investments, production equipment, logistics – not to mention ever-changing customer demands. Data gets created at every turn, but it often stays in silos, limited in its utility. This holds true for all manufacturers, whether in aerospace and defense, automotives, industrial machinery or mill products. With Tableau, you can quickly blend and link similar data to gain decisive results in seconds – compared to hours or days with programming-intensive methods. Use what you learn from your manufacturing analytics to improve process efficiency, centralise production monitoring, better serve your customers and turn real-time data into just-in-time insights.

Making sense of industrial sensor data

By using Tableau’s leading analytics platform, GE Aviation is making it easier for airlines to access, understand and take action on this data. Airlines can now explore customer reports created in Tableau through Predix, GE’s cloud-based software platform for industrial applications. With Tableau’s powerful, easy-to-use platform, airlines can further analyse sensor data from the flight (from engines, airframes, flaps, landing gear, etc.) as well as the health of the aircraft itself (ground operations, maintenance, crewing etc.)
