Industrial analytics refers to the process of collecting, analyzing, and using the data generated in industrial operations throughout the product’s lifecycle. It involves traditional methods of statistical modeling and data capture, and modern advancements in connectivity, such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and improved methods for interpreting and analyzing data, including machine learning. Industrial analytics is applicable to any asset-intensive company that is manufacturing physical products. Industrial analytics enables organizations to better understand their industrial operations and helps gain deeper business insights to optimize their businesses
