Why efficient manufacturers are doubling down on optimization.

Thriving in today’s global marketplace means investing in innovation and preparing for the unexpected. Wildfires, power outages, flooding, civil unrest, trade wars, and pandemics are just some of the events that have disrupted supply chains, manufacturing, and distribution in the recent past.

With the need to manage so many factors, innovative manufacturers are turning to optimization powered by machine learning models for efficient outputs and solutions. Optimization takes into account business objectives and constraints, then uses advanced analytics to prescribe the best action and when to take it. This allows businesses to minimize costs or maximize performance across the manufacturing process, even if the variables have  conflicting goals. Optimization recommends the best choices among thousands of possible actions for optimal productivity and outputs — in near real time. Simple UIs give power to business users. This is how to fully leverage, optimize, and create more value from your IoT investments.
