Manufacturers will find tremendous value with Tableau. This is because manufacturers have a ton of data, but they don’t always know how to use it effectively. Tableau allows them to slice and dice data from a single source of truth and share it seamlessly across the organization.

More about how manufacturers can leverage Tableau:


  • Tableau allows users to blend and link similar data to gain key insights in seconds. Ordinarily, they’d have to spend hours or days on more programming-intensive methods.
  • It takes data from disparate sources – human resources, raw materials, capital investments, production equipment, logistics, customer service and support – and prevents the data from staying siloed.
  • These manufacturing analytics improve process efficiency, centralize production monitoring, and better serve customers.
