Profitable growth is at the forefront of manufacturing executives’ minds¹. The math is simple: increase revenue and decrease costs. Easy, right? Unfortunately, getting there isn't that simple. The good news is that analytics can help. The better news is that there’s a new place for manufacturers to discover analytic best practices:
Made in... Analytics.
Made in... Analytics is a new sister blog to SAS Voices. It is designed just for you, the manufacturing professional, to explore hot topics and business issues in the manufacturing industry. The blog highlights case studies, lessons learned, and best practices. Whether you're interested in understanding how to take advantage of the Internet of Things or how to finally get your arms around Supply Chain, Quality, or Service, this new blog brings you analytic best practices from a manufacturing perspective, so that you can:
- Do more with less.
- Do it better than anyone else.
Contributors to the blog come from our own manufacturing team, partners, industry though leaders, and even our customers. Our manufacturing team brings years of experience as practitioners from a variety of manufacturing sectors – in other words, they've walked the walk. They've developed a broad range of experiences from which to draw, applying analytics and optimizing processes in automotive, consumer electronics, consumer packaged goods, industrial equipment, hi tech, and other sectors.

If you like what we have to say, great! If you take issue with something, even better! Either way, the only way the community will improve is through open, honest communication.
