PL1346B - Leverage Data Warehouses to Empower Collaborative Decision Making

Learn how leveraging a data warehouse improves a product company’s profits. Leonardo DRS strategically leverages a data warehouse to improve communications and optimize decision making. That includes digital thread capabilities as well as optimized engineering changes and manufacturing decisions that speed innovative products to market, reduce costs, and improve quality. A data warehouse is an enterprise system used to analyze and report on structured and semi-structured data from multiple sources. For a product company, those sources include PLM for product and change information, ERP for inventory and financials, and CRM for customer feedback. The presentation will include the tools we use and lessons learned along the way.
