John Deere: Predictive Analytics for Quality and Maintenance

Project Details

John Deere Electronic Solutions (JDES), formerly Phoenix International, requested our group research and explore the concept of Predictive Analytics and deliver a report on the topic at the conclusion. The goal of this project was to see if Predictive Analytics would be useful for their company. With this goal in mind, the capstone group members and project mentors researched potential software suites, secured and examined data from JDES, cleaned the data for analysis, and performed analysis on the data to try and identify a pattern in warranty claims starting from initial manufacturing data. We used the R language – a free, open-source statistical language – and the RStudio development environment.
