Continental Engineering Services GmbH
Continental Engineering Services (CES) is a global services and consulting firm with 1,700 employees. By integrating its KNIME center of excellence into CES, the automotive supplier Continental Corporation reacted to the growing interest across industries to learn about and to replicate their award-winning digital transformation journey based on establishing a data culture.
The CES business center 'Data Services' offers consulting, training, project, and software services. It makes available Continental's knowledge on establishing a data culture by educating and guiding business users in usage of the KNIME Analytics Platform. Enabling 'better decisions everywhere', they have gained project experience along the entire value chain of manufacturing, including common administrative processes such as controlling, logistics, and human relations.
Focusing on a thorough understanding of the status quo and true business need, CES' Data Services team has learned that successful data strategies combine business user empowerment via workflow automation and high-impact advanced analytics projects.
Their data science project experience covers the entire manufacturing domain, e.g. forecast precision improvement, predictive quality, noise vibration harshness (NVH) root cause analysis, and traceability. Continental Engineering Services' commitment towards KNIME also shows in their open-sourced community extension which brings Excel formatting capabilities to KNIME.
