Data mining and predictive analytics are key topics in Industrie 4.0. Data mining brings data together from various sources within a production hall, a company or even a global network of production sites. It harvests the fuel for all data-driven processes that finally lower cost and increase effectiveness of the production. Predictive analytics on this data is the engine that drives those effectiveness gains and even enables new business models.

Significant value propositions in mind, it is not a straightforward task to start engaging with data mining and predictive analytics. The data science value chain in a production environment can be complex, involving a heterogeneous landscape of data sources and formats. Developing effective models and keeping their quality and return-on-invest up over time is also not an easy task. Finally, understanding how to set up data science projects in manufacturing is crucial to bridge the gap from proof-of-concept to a productive solution.

The one-day workshop “Predictive Analytics Industry 4.0 for Practitioners and Decision Makers” offers a use-case and demo-based guideline how to draw most value from data science for the shop floor. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to independently conceptualize data-driven use cases for your organization, understand the steps to bring those cases to live, and know how to assess the value they bring for your company. Equipped by this knowledge you are able to optimize business outcome, while addressing risks and uncertainties as early as possible.
