The engineering and manufacturing sectors play a critical role in shaping our modern world, but they are also significant contributors to environmental degradation and resource depletion. As concerns about climate change, environmental pollution, and social responsibility continue to rise, there is an increasing need for these sectors to adopt sustainable practices that minimise their negative impacts on the environment and society. In this context, leveraging data analytics and visualisation tools like Power BI can be instrumental in driving sustainability initiatives in the engineering and manufacturing sectors.
According to the United Nations, industrial production accounts for 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions, with manufacturing alone accounting for approximately 21% of global CO2 emissions. In addition, producing and consuming goods result in significant waste generation, pollution, and resource depletion. These negative environmental impacts, combined with the increasing scrutiny from consumers, investors, and regulators, make sustainability a pressing issue for the engineering and manufacturing sectors.
Moreover, sustainability is not just about environmental concerns. It also encompasses social and economic aspects, such as fair labour practices, supply chain transparency, and community engagement. Many organisations realise that sustainability is a moral imperative and a strategic business opportunity. Companies prioritising sustainability are more likely to attract and retain customers, enhance their brand reputation, reduce risks, and achieve long-term profitability and resilience in a changing business landscape.
Power BI, as a powerful data analytics and visualisation tool, can play a crucial role in supporting sustainability initiatives in the engineering and manufacturing sectors. By leveraging Power BI, professionals in these sectors can gain valuable insights from their sustainability data, identify areas of improvement, and make data-driven decisions to drive sustainable practices.
This course will provide professionals in the engineering and manufacturing sectors with a comprehensive understanding of sustainability concepts and how to utilise Power BI for data analysis and reporting to support sustainability initiatives.
Duration: 2 Days
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
This module provides an overview of sustainability concepts in the engineering and manufacturing sectors. It covers sustainability's environmental, social, and economic aspects, including the need for sustainability in these sectors, backed by facts, statistics, and real-world examples. Participants will gain an understanding of the global sustainability challenges and opportunities and how the engineering and manufacturing sectors can contribute to a more sustainable future.
Energy efficiency tracking enables organisations to monitor, analyse, and optimise their energy consumption patterns, identify areas of improvement, and implement effective strategies to reduce energy waste, lower costs, and minimise environmental impact.
In our first business case, we use PowerBI to analyse and track energy usage across different business units. This can further help the business take data-informed decisions in their sustainability efforts. Modules 3-5 will walk through various features of PowerBI and how it can help in effective data visualisation.
This module focuses on designing effective visualisations and reports in Power BI for reporting. Participants will learn best practices for designing visualisations that effectively communicate data, including selecting appropriate chart types, applying data visualisation principles, and creating interactive and dynamic reports.
Participants will learn how to tell a data-driven story for our first business case in Power BI. They will learn how to use storytelling techniques to make their data come alive, engage their audience, and communicate their message effectively.
Carbon footprint analysis is crucial for understanding and managing an organisation's environmental impact, setting emission reduction targets, and implementing sustainability initiatives. It provides organisations with valuable insights into their carbon emissions, helps identify areas for improvement, and guides the development of strategies to reduce emissions, optimise resource usage, and transition towards a low-carbon economy. Moreover, carbon footprint analysis is increasingly required for regulatory compliance, green certifications, and sustainability reporting, making it an essential tool for organisations committed to sustainable business practices and mitigating climate change.
Participants will use the data and instructions provided and build an interactive dashboard to analyse carbon footprint and take key crucial decisions based on the dashboard created.
Participants will learn through lectures, case studies, group exercises, hands-on exercises and discussions. The course will be conducted in face-to-face or virtual format with a duration of 16 hours.
