It is a new deal with data being structured, data to be consolidated creating new value, data being unstructured to reveal tacit knowledge in the company, being also machine data to promote Industry 4.0 practices.

Samuele is going to present about how analytics should move to predictive maintenance, mainly in manufacturing and PLM world.

Analytics in the PLM world: moving from standard dashboarding to predictive maintenance

Today analytics are everywhere. Is that so true? For sure sales and marketing started several years ago to get an analytical view of their data. But if we move to manufacturing or engineering departments the context is considerably different.

Let’s start from a couple of figures: about 37% of ERP budget is spent on BI and analytics initiatives; in the CRM world this percentage is around 30% but if we move to Manufacturing and PLM world we have only 1% of the budget spent in analytics.

This leads to a simple question: “Why is there no serious analytics program for PLM?”. I suggest 3 answers:

  1. No decision made in the PLM world, then no need for PLM Analytics
  2. Analytics does not help to make important decisions; everything can be done by intuition
  3. Analyzing and understanding product lifecycle is so complex that ERP BI approach is not sustainable

Let’s join my session to share which is the right one and discuss together how analytics are vital to move to predictive maintenance.
