Posted June 20, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Manufacturers have begun to embrace business information (BI) software, with an eye on achieving enterprise-wide visibility of operational dynamics. Armed with this new tool, engineers and managers of all departments can access real-time, multi-variable historical and forecast data in a variety of formats. This promises to promote data-based decision making and better allocations of resources. Engineering360 reviews best practices for assessing the benefits of a BI tool, outlines pricing strategies, and describes the three main steps for implementing a BI project. The article also examines the role cloud-based platforms may play in these software implementations.
