Coffee. Croissants. Data.
Most manufacturers are well-equipped to run their production operations using proven, time-tested strategies that rely on measurable, quantitative data. But what about strategic planning, sales & marketing, and business development? Where does the data come from and what can you do with it?
If you run a company by the numbers, or report to someone that does, there’s no such thing as too much information.
Join AMT and your data-minded peers from the industry for breakfast, and learn about specific sources for data on manufacturing technology, how to get the most out of them, and what’s next for business data.
