The manufacturing industry is faced with global competition making efficient, effective and continuously improved manufacturing processes a critical success factor. Yet, media discontinuities, the use of isolated analysis methods on local data sets as well as missing means for sharing analysis results cause a collaborative gap in Manufacturing Process Management that prohibits continuous process improvement. To address this challenge, this paper proposes the Advanced Manufacturing Analytics (AdMA) Platform that bridges the gap by integrating operational and process manufacturing data, defining a repository for analysis results and providing indication-based and pattern-based optimization techniques. Both the conceptual architecture underlying the platform as well as its current implementation are presented in this paper.
