Turning Your Data Into Actionable Intelligence

KCMN Events

KCMN November Meeting

Certainly there is no lack of data generated in manufacturing – but data is meaningless unless it empowers your team to take action, make operational improvements, or improve service delivery.  What data do you analyze? Who do you share it with?  How do you ensure that you are gathering & analyzing the right information?  Join us for our November meeting  where our speakers and panelists will share their approach to using data to improve operations.
