In this issue of Take The Shortcut, we will touch on a new industry subject: Manufacturing. There are two Dataiku Business Solutions made with factory and production managers in mind. Designed to help drive production activities, one does so at the macro level while the other considers the operation scale of things.

Production Quality Control is the go-to solution for production engineers or heads of factories to improve the quality of production and adjust manufacturing processes in near real-time. Production Quality Control helps to maximize production efficiency and reduce costs.

Factories Electricity & CO2 Emissions Forecasting, meanwhile, is the solution to helping operations, strategic planning, and CSR teams monitor electricity consumption and the CO2 emissions it generates down the line. It covers electricity consumption across meters and sites to aggregate activity-based carbon emissions forecasting.

Before exploring these two topics further, a short summary of Dataiku Business Solutions, what they’re about, and how you can use them in your day-to-day work to achieve real-world business value!
