Facing the challenges of Industry 4.0 we at Mahr develop digital products as well a data base to be able to optimize our production and machines automatically - driven by statistical results. Especially in the metrology sector a vast amount of data is collected. Hence, we need to understand and use this data to satisfy the demands of our customers. In this talk we will give some insights into production metrology. Furthermore, we will discuss the skill profile of a data scientist in industry and show some specific application of data science tools at Mahr.
