BrandPost: The Future of Manufacturing with Data Analytics and Machine Learning

For decades, industrial control systems have been generating enormous volumes of data, but in many cases that data hasnrsquo;t been fully employed to help companies reduce operating costs, improve reliability, and increase productivitymdash;three goals that amount to the holy grail of manufacturing.
