How to Apply Data Analytics to Manufacturing
With 2020 just weeks away, manufacturers are looking for ways to gain greater insights from the massive amount of data they produce to improve shop floor operations and become more competitive in the new year. By adopting analytics and BI applications to manage performance metrics, the potential to improve shop floor productivity is within reach for more manufacturers than ever before.
A recent Forbes article highlights how you can get started with analytics beginning with five key metrics that have proven effective in improving production efficiency and quality:
- Manufacturing Cycle Time
- Supplier Inbound Quality
- Production Yield Rates By Product, Process, and Plant Location
- Perfect Order Performance
- Return Material Authorization (RMA) Rate as % Of Manufacturing

Chris Naumovski, CFO for Sisler Manufacturing Group Holding Co. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Truform Manufacturing LLC.
