Data analysis and machine learning are everywhere nowadays, reshaping how we think and work across various fields. This presentation will introduce advanced statistical and machine learning-enabled modeling methodologies and predictive analysis in industrial and engineering contexts. We will explore scenarios such as deriving predictive maintenance decisions using the sensory data collected from manufacturing equipment or understanding the effects of various covariates on degradation mechanisms, such as void swelling, through data-driven modeling.

This presentation will highlight research opportunities, challenges, and advancements, especially how data science methodologies can capture the maximum benefits of collected data to not only achieve high modeling and prediction accuracy, but also extract valuable insights and basis for data-driven decision making.
