About the event

Engineering Data is described as ‘any information that collectively becomes the knowledge on which an engineer can design, build, test and monitor the proposed end-product’. As a product moves from concept to completion, it amasses huge amounts of data as a by-product of its life-cycle. As the volume of data, both structured and unstructured increases year on year, the engineer needs a toolkit capable of managing this flow of data from the various product process and visualising the data to provide a clear basis for decision making.

In this session, Stephen Howell outlines two such tools from Microsoft: Flow and Power BI, and illustrates their use in building dashboards and reports.
