Big Data Analytics in Electronics Manufacturing: is MES the key to unlocking its true potential?

There is no shortage of data in SMT and electronics plants and their supply chains. The issue which plagues most fabs is the way in which a myriad of point solutions exist on the shop floor, existing in the process either due to due to legacy or custom solutions, or simply because there is not solution which overarches the entire process.
