Executive summary
For completing this study work, the first topic named “Data for Supply Chain and Operations Management” is selected by me. The PTC system for making data collections for big data and performing analysis is introduced. The data collection process is being mentioned with respect to PTC systems. The required processes for data storage with related methods and showing importance are also being described in this study work. The centric design for consumer products and possible recommendations is discussed with respect to possible occu
ed problems which may be faced during any disaster condition for any online business idea. The possible recommendations to faced problems are also introduced in my study work.
Report introduction
The data set of very large and possibly complex data is considered as big data. The traditional database systems are not able to make analysis and performing calculations for very large and possibly complex data sets. The big data provides different factors which can be used to capture and making search of any data element, storage of data sets, analysis of data sets, database sharing, data transfer, implementing virtualization and creation or update operation for the privacy status of the database and processed information. In this produced study report, the data storage and related collection methods with relation to operational management and supply chain are being discussed in a step by step manner.
Data Collection and Storage
The PTC system is very commonly used for the data collection purpose in most of the organizations. The efficient data collection process from all the possible data suppliers makes it most recommended system of data collection. This system provides different methods which allow the automatic generation and submission of supplier data directly to the manufacturer on bases of different industry standards. The PTC system helps the organizations to process the specific data justifying any customer requirements in a dedicated format. The organizations can use PTC systems to validate and aggregate the responses from data suppliers. The third party tools included by this system includes the functionalities of detailed information for any particular part, required material, and possible compliances in detailed manner. The data collection is performed on bases of design specifications of data supplier to this PTC system. The PTC systems also help in validating and performing normalization for the entire content load from data supplier. The data collection process helps the organization to produce the required reports with functions of forecasting methods for predicting trends of future market and tracking the latest trends [Brandenburg et al, 2014]. The used methods by big data for making data collection and its formulating are described below:
1. Advance analytics: The big data specific process for data transfer in place of making use of appropriate already informed decisions is implemented in this data collection method. By implementing the advance analytics for data collection, the overlapping analytics are also been observed. These overlapping analytics are based on classifications of possibly accepted different analytics types.
2. Descriptive analytics: The past activities of any business process and occu
ed situations are mainly used for data collection in this analytics method. This method makes use of different patterns, past trends, and related exceptional cases which are already being predicted. The dash board and reporting standards are utilized to make query execution and producing shelf packages. The alerts for stored data are also provided by this analytics method. By using these alerts, the organization can take necessary and required steps to maintain continuity of supply chain.
3. Predictive analytics: The analytics method which makes analysis and data comparison on bases of real time for making analysis of historical data is known as predictive analytics of data collection in big data. The future trends are used to make predictions of future probabilities. This method is mostly used in different measures of marketing through SCM for determining the safety and total sales of the stock. To learn the regression process and other statistical algorithm, this is best suited method of data analysis.
4. Prescriptive analytics: The method which makes use of certain predictions which are based on steps of collected data sets for taking advantages of some user specific requirement and for avoiding any possible situation of data analysis is known as prescriptive analytics. The use of data simulation and possible optimization implementation are main analytics activities performed in this method.
In today’s supply chain world of data, the increased challenges related to data structure selection and implementation methods increased the coping or handling responsibilities for the organizations. The data collection is very critical activity but storage of collected data and providing its supply on requirements is main challenge for modern organizations. The ERD systems of different business orders, occu
ed shipment orders, consumer behavior for shopping activities are mainly used to perform data collection. The modern organizations also use channels of social media and GPS to collect the required data from their consumers.
The major and very important prerequisite for storing the big data is its maintenance for complex and large data sets. The maintaining of such data grows in a...
