Free taster workshop: Advanced Analytics in Process Manufacturing

On 21 October you can get a preview of this conference by attending a free online workshop.

This hands-on training will show attendees how to perform process analytics using the Seeq application. The workshop will begin with a general overview of a typical analytics workflow (finding data, cleansing, calculating metrics, and monitoring) before using Seeq to work through a use case involving calculating process metrics, finding excursions from metric limits, and building a simple dashboard.
