On 2 February five new Factories of the Future joined in: Daikin, Nuscience, Rousselot, Valeo and Veranneman Technical Textiles can now carry this prestigious label for three years due to their advanced progress in the seven transformations on the road to the factory of the future. Each one of them demonstrated that they belong to the technological core of the 265 Belgian manufacturing companies which already set off on this path. In the weeks ahead we will present these excellent companies to you one by one.

Before proceeding with in-depth data analysis, you first need to ensure that the data you have available is suited for solving your business problem. Data exploration is a first step in the data science workflow. It helps you to find out if the data you have available is suited for the problem you want to study. Our training session on data exploration helps you on your way.
