Pursuing Data for Global Predictive Analytics Strategic Framework

Tauber's student team worked with Whirlpool's Advance Manufacturing team, which represents the hub of Whirlpool's strategic push toward achieving Industry 4.0 standards across their enterprise.  For unknown reasons, the manufacturing team was experiencing rib cracks resulting from the forming process when using an oven cavity rib stamping press.  The cracks seemed to appear randomly, but frequently enough to disrupt production and create excessive waste.
