For this manufacturer of high-tech imaging systems, monitoring accuracy and product quality are critical. To help ensure its processes are top notch, the company aggregates and analyzes large volumes of streaming data from its manufacturing and testing processes, and inspects the materials it receives from several suppliers of highly calibrated technologies. Any quality problem could mean a part fails sooner than expected, or triggers a false alarm at a customer site that causes unnecessary panic. The worst case scenario would be technologies failing to detect real threats. One of our biggest challenges is our supplier.
