From operational quality and efficiency, to product life-cycle management and cost control, business in the manufacturing sector has never been more insight-hungry. The Bigstep Metal Cloud supplies manufacturing companies with the ability to quickly and securely leverage big data for actionable business insights.
Without big data analytics, tracking hundreds of variables involved in the production processes is a daunting – if not impossible – task. Hadoop makes it easy to assess process interdependencies and identify high-impact factors on yield drop and variability. Through continuous re-evaluation and data-informed targeted changes, output efficiency is maximized.
Big Data can improve several key supply-side business activities: real-time delivery tracking, optimized supplier management, optimized pricing, and automatic product sourcing. Great optimizations in these key areas translate into repeat purchase behavior, consumer brand loyalty, and more purchases and referrals from satisfied customers.
