Alation Solution By Industry: Manufacturing - Shorten Time To Market

Shorten time to market

To support effective decision-making, plant managers need to obtain a holistic, timely view of operational data. This allows them to assess how much inventory is on hand, who is accountable for it, and whether parts are on track for on-time delivery. Alation unifies extensive data across product lines to create a single view to help plant managers and supervisors work from the same view and shorten time-to-market.

Achieve efficiency gains

To improve efficiency and gain competitive advantage, manufacturers are digitally transforming factories. They are investing in technologies that enable employees to work more productively, streamline the process, and improve the quality of products. With Alation, manufacturers can foster collaboration and rapidly onboard new data workers, who can meaningfully contribute to business goals within hours.

Alation Solution By Industry: Manufacturing Optimize Operational Processes

Optimize operational processes

Manufacturers need data to make connections inside the factory, across the supply chains, and within the company ecosystems. Without curating and standardizing the data residing in disparate systems, they are unable to link operational activities with overall competitive strategy and imperatives. Alation enables manufacturers to develop a common business language that the entire company can use, helping to harmonize operations.

Improve product quality

The addition of IoT sensors and increased automation brings more visibility to what happens on the production line. Business users need ready access to this operational data to do everything from expediting the rejection of defective products to validating quality against the golden batch. Alation enables manufacturers to democratize trusted data for diagnostic and predictive analyses, thus reducing maintenance costs and improving product quality.
