Operations professionals face a constant challenge: ensuring smooth information flow and data-driven decision-making across geographically dispersed teams and systems. Traditional methods of data collection and analysis are often slow, siloed, and prone to errors. This can lead to inefficiencies, delayed insights, and ultimately, hinder your organization's ability to optimize performance and achieve its full potential. 

Minitab Connect presents a powerful solution to these challenges by seamlessly integrating Operational Technology (OT) data with Information Technology (IT) data. Acting as a centralized hub, Minitab Connect consolidates data from various sources across your global operations, including:

  • Manufacturing plant data: Production lines, machine sensors, and quality control systems. 
  • Supply chain data: Inventory levels, delivery schedules, and supplier performance metrics. 
  • Customer data: Sales figures, feedback surveys, and warranty claims.
