Large Manufacturer Downtime Reduction Case Study

Data is everywhere. It’s in all facets of our life, from work to home. Whether you are in healthcare, finance, manufacturing or any other industry, your organization is likely analyzing data. And why not, the benefits can be great. From reducing costs, improving decision making or helping to create new and better products, successful data analysis can offer dramatic paybacks.

During this presentation we will focus on a case study that involves a large manufacturer and how they used simple techniques to reduce line downtime by 34% and create savings of over $430,000. After we review the case study, we will launch Minitab and work through some of the same tools that were used in our real-life example. Last, we will briefly discuss the use of Macros and how they can help to save time by automating repetitive tasks/processes.
