Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time.

Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
