Purpose: The purpose of this document is to explain how to apply the power of Hadoop Big Data platform in Manufacturing scenario.
Challenge: Big data is the term for a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications. Data growth challenges and opportunities are considered to be three-dimensional, i.e. increasing volume (amount of data), velocity (speed of data in and out), and variety (range of data types and sources). In Manufacturing space there’re number of scenarios where we can speak about Big Data. From Engineering Modeling perspective we can simulate every aspect of manufacturing process and get business insight when doing Demand Forecasting, Supply Chain Planning, Capacity Planning, Resource Scheduling, Inventory Optimization, OEE Optimization, etc.
