Are you making the most of your sensor data in your production processes? This Q&A with Dr. Michael Watson, Partner at Opex Analytics and Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University, discusses:


• The evolution of sensors in manufacturing plants, and their increased use as costs decrease

• How some manufacturers are getting more creative with sensor data – evolving from predictive to prescriptive (optimization) analytics to drive better actions

• How an optimization-powered approach can help you not only better predict failure, but also determine what to fix today vs. later (or not at all)
