Integrated, real-time and open approaches relating to the development of industrial analytics capabilities are needed to support smart manufacturing. However, adopting industrial analytics can be challenging due to its multidisciplinary and cross-departmental (e.g. Operation and Information Technology) nature. These challenges stem from the significant effort needed to coordinate and manage teams and technologies in a connected enterprise. To address these challenges, this research presents a formal industrial analytics methodology that may be used to inform the development of industrial analytics capabilities. The methodology classifies operational teams that comprise the industrial analytics ecosystem, and presents a technology agnostic reference architecture to facilitate the industrial analytics lifecycle. Finally, the proposed methodology is demonstrated in a case study, where an industrial analytics platform is used to identify an operational issue in a large-scale Air Handling Unit (AHU).
