AI & Machine Learning and the importance of data

Host: Dave Manning

Event Overview

Join Dave Manning who will draw on more than 30 years’ experience as a thought leading supply chain consultant to discuss common pitfalls that undermine data quality.

As technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and digital twins develop in the supply chain, the importance of data quality has never been more important.

Since systems such as ERP, MES, PLM and APS have developed it has been well understood that garbage in results in garbage out. Automation should not be applied until the data quality is under control.

Unfortunately, this has not always been well practiced. But it’s not technologies or the processes that create poor data – it’s people.

Data quality is predominantly a behavioral issue. And with the advent of Industry 4.0, data quality has never been more paramount. Join the conversation for actionable insights on improving data quality in your supply chain.
