Data Rich but Information Poor: Building a Data-Driven Culture in Manufacturing at MAGNA

We're sorry, this event has ended.

Manufacturing is a complex business. Products include many parts, requiring complex fabrication and assembly, and utilize expensive equipment. Supply chains are global, lead times can be significant, and even carefully prepared plans can go wrong. Add in workforce management, order data, shipping, and inventory management, and Manufacturing organizations find themselves swimming in volumes of data. This data holds valuable insights, and can help solve complex problems when properly utilized. Unfortunately, many organizations and individuals simply struggle to create a basic chart needed for their next meeting.

Successful manufacturing companies understand the value of timely, insightful and understandable information. Becoming a data-driven organization requires the use of advanced technology that is capable of accessing and analyzing a diverse amount of data. In this Magna webinar, we will use COVID data to showcase how leading manufacturers can access volumes of data to:

  • Implement "big-needle metrics" for a clear picture of employees health, risk and impact across assembly lines
  • Develop insights that can predict & forewarn of risks before they become issues
  • Leverage data from different sources to drive actionable insights

Join us to see how Tableau can empower your teams to unlock the potential lying within their data!
