Grow your understanding of data analytics solutions and tools

February 13, 2019

Speed and changing market conditions are significant challenges for businesses across many industries and markets. The need for improved efficiency, the ability to adapt to changing market conditions and digitalization are often key drivers of change. By focusing on data, a company can make significant improvements in processes or systems, and gain insights into the driving forces behind business operations. Data analytics is the key to business optimization.

No matter what your current level of knowledge or skills in using data analytics tools is – from beginner to experienced data scientist – attending the upcoming Umetrics Suite User Meeting in May can help you gain valuable insights. To be held in Göttingen, Germany, the User Meeting features presentations from data analytics experts and users designed to help you put your production, process and manufacturing data to work for you. It’s preceded by a two-day hands-on workshop in using the Umetrics Suite of data analytics tools.

Umetrics User Meeting May 2019

The Umetrics Suite User Meeting will be held May 8-9, 2019, preceded by a two-day workshop on May 6-7, 2019 in Göttingen, Germany.

A hands-on training workshop

Sartorius will hold a workshop for hands-on training using the Umetrics Suite preceding the user meeting, on May 6-7, 2019.

This workshop focuses on three key drivers of change for industry:

  • Improved efficiency - exploring and understanding data quickly and easily with the use of user friendly tools with pre-defined workflows.
  • Adapt to changing market conditions – through increased knowledge. When the process engineer and the scientist combine information from data with domain knowledge and experience they will become even more skilled.
  • Digitalization – more specifically data analytics, which helps finding the golden nuggets in your data.

Combining the three key drivers within one platform gives a tool for innovative product development and operational excellence.

Key methods in data analytics

Using real industrial applications, the workshop shows how data can be turned into solutions to solve a variety of problems. Two corner stones of the data analytics methods used in the Umetrics Suite will be highlighted. These are:

Design of Experiments (DoE)

Design of experiments is a systematic method for planning experiments where individual and interactive effects of various factors can explain the outcome of your experiments. The Umetrics MODDE® DOE solution is built with optimal tools to manage an advanced quality assessment of your results that will guide you to trustworthy conclusions. 

Multivariate Data Analysis (MVDA)

MVDA is a statistical technique used to analyze data that is generated from more than one variable. MVDA will help you estimate summary variables and make sense of data from many sources. SIMCA® is a tool that reduces complexity by looking for patterns and relationships between several variables, facilitating interpretation and understanding. An interesting application for MVDA is real time monitoring — a  solution that helps you monitor your processes in real-time, allowing you to act instead of react.

Participants will learn how advanced data analytics can be used in different industrial applications. The workshop is composed of lectures, demonstrations and computer exercises in the MODDE® and SIMCA® solutions. Also, the real time solutions of the Umetrics suite will be demonstrated using SIMCA®-online.

User Meeting: Learn from others

During the Umetrics Suite User Meeting May 8-9, 2019, you’ll have a chance to learn first-hand how other users have put the Umetrics Suite to use to improve their business processes.

Representatives from companies such as Amgen, Janssen, Baxter and more will share success stories and knowledge gained from their experiences using the Umetrics Suite of data analytics solutions. Presenters will discuss:

  • how they have used and implemented Umetrics solutions in their production
  • how they have been able to increase yield, reduce waste, save time and money
  • how they discovered new processes and gained insights as a result of implementing data analytics solutions
  • surprising secrets that data analytics uncovered in their company's operations

There is also a “meet the expert” session that you will not want to miss. It's your chance to talk face-to-face with Umetrics data analytics experts and ask them any questions that you might have.

You can also get a free demo of the latest version of Umetrics software and find new ways to use it.
