Develop Analytical Decision-Making

A common thread woven throughout the advancement of Industry 4.0 and SMART manufacturing is the transformation of legacy systems to a full integration of data-informed decision-making from every level of your organization. Orchestrating the training and development of groups throughout departments addresses your organization’s capability gaps as individuals learn how to ask the right questions to achieve results.

  • From the start, participants learn to employ analytic models to frame questions, develop recommendations, formulate analysis, and validate results so that informed decisions can be made.
  • Learners will use more advanced analytical tools to gain deeper insights into complex business issues. They will create models to represent the current state and make adjustments to represent a desired future state as underlying assumptions change.
  • Working with an instructor/mentor, participants will develop a big data inquiry model for a complex business issue, question, or problem of their choice. They will frame the question, develop a hypothesis, collect and prepare data for analysis, perform the analysis, and present actionable recommendations for your organization.

  • They will practice transforming analyses into recommendations to improve production issues.
