The workshop was held at the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) on 1 February 2016 and was funded by the Cambridge Big Data-EPSRC Collaborative Workshops Fund.

  1. Professor Andy Neely, IfM - [presentation]
  2. Dr Mohamed Zaki, IfM - [presentation]
  3. Professor Boris Otta, Franhoufer Institute -[presentation], and

In the afternoon, the delegates split into four groups to discuss:

  1. What problems in manufacturing organisations could analytics potentially solve?,
  2. What are the main barriers that prevent manufacturers from using analytics?,
  3. What technologies and ICT infrastructure do manufacturers need to enable analytics?,
  4. What are the potential new manufacturing business models that analytics could enable?.

A representative from each group presented back their group views about these questions. At the end of the day, we had a panel session to discuss general issues about the role of data in manufacturing. The outcome of this workshop will be a working paper, that should be released in May.
