staff at Manufacturing SummitFairfax, VA, April 1st, 2019 – Sightline Systems, a Top 10 Manufacturing Intelligence Solution Provider, was a Gold Level Sponsor of the American Manufacturing Summit to discuss how manufacturing companies can adopt a new mindset in order to unlock the value of their data with Sightline Enterprise Data Manager (EDM).

Erik Laubacher, Vice President IIoT at Sightline, joined industry leaders to share insights on the value of manufacturing data and the need for a tool that can facilitate a common understanding of operations and bridge the gap between the shop floor and the top floor. “With hundreds or even thousands of sensors, there is simply too much data for people to process. Companies typically have basic reporting systems, but most data is confined to silos used by one or two people and sometimes ignored completely. Machine learning automates anomaly detection and pattern analysis in vast mountains of data that would otherwise be too hard to find.”
