Data Visualisation and Decision Making in the Manufacturing Sector

Data Visualisation and Decision Making in the Manufacturing Sector

Centre for Life

Monday 25th June 2018

09.30 – 16.45


Manufacturers have a complex value chain, from the raw material itself and how to manage any supply constraints through to the complex production processes themselves. And whilst the product itself is usually core to a manufacturing business and remains the focus of any data being collated, the use of data and analytics throughout the value chain can lead to significant benefits in terms of cost reduction, machine usage and maintenance, scheduling and logistics, even sales forecasting.

As these production systems becoming increasingly intelligently automated through the drive for digitalisation, it is also important to remember that human skills will continue to remain essential for many tasks, making the marriage between humans and machines critical to success.

Data visualisation for effective decision-making becomes an essential element of the digitised manufacturing shop floor, as it will enable humans to work better and more effectively alongside the production process leading to the generation of efficiencies, the broadening of the scope of what the machinery can actually achieve and ultimately a boost in productivity by motivating workers through salient, useful and credible evidence based information.

This workshop is being co-organised with the University of Portsmouth Institute of Industrial Research and is being held outside of the South Coast region because it is held the day before the Connected Everything Conference 2018 and is occurring at the same time as the Great Exhibition of the North 2018, featuring Stephenson’s Rocket which takes place in Newcastle from 22nd June 2018.

It aligns with the manufacturing theme that the South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications is focusing on, and a follow up workshop will be held in the South Coast region in July 2018 to disseminate information. Further information will follow in due course.

We are also delighted to receive the support of the North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence in the organisation and dissemination of this event.
