Written by Dr Samiya Khan, Research Fellow in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence & Edge Computing at the University of Wolverhampton.

This blog titled, “Fine-tuning Production in Manufacturing with Big Data Analytics”, discusses the data revolution which has impacted all forms of businesses, including manufacturing. The manufacturing sector has been using several software packages such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and quality assurance systems for years, without fully tapping into the potential of using historical data that these systems have accumulated over time. With the advent of state-of-the-art technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), data type, volume and the rate of data generation have scaled up. As a result, the need for technologies that can handle, integrate, store and process data from different types of sources and process it in real time, has further intensified. The manufacturing sector is swiftly moving into the era of Industry 4.0 where the vision for smart factories will completely come into effect. This would mean extensive sensor deployments, use of sophisticated data communication paradigms and development of intelligent solutions that can bestow high degree of autonomy on systems. Big data analytics has a key role to play in bringing all these different facets together to provide actionable insights.
