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 aerospace and defense, automotive, 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 to improve process efficiency, centralize production monitoring, better serve your customers, and turn real-time data into just-in-time insights.
