After analyzing the company’s risky approach to data management using multiple applications, Cognizant Digital Business proposed a strong, centralized analytical platform that would decrease operation risks and production downtime. Using PTC’s ThingWorx Navigate and Windchill platforms, we developed a single data management system with a centralized governance program, providing a single source for verifiable data. This system enables data validation, monitors data ownership, creates audit trails, addresses adverse events quickly, tracks key performance indicators and manages user access privileges.
The system also provides access to data and reports on quality events. Users select the type of report required, and the system displays key information graphically as well as drill-downs on any data points for detailed analysis.
