A Matter of Life and Death: Advanced Analytics and Product Safety Recalls

November 19, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Our safety.         

Product safety recalls are in the news so often that our early reactions of shock and fear have been replaced by, “What now?”

Manufacturers clearly need help identifying potential safety issues earlier in a new product’s life cycle, detecting existing unknown issues, and keeping pace with increasing regulatory requirements.

Can advanced analytics help proactively identify safety issues before lives are lost and injuries are sustained? Can they support the launch of recall campaigns sooner rather than later? And overall, can they better protect consumers as well as the company’s brand?

The experts speak.
