DATA SCIENCE CONSULTING
The poultry industry trusts specialized geneticists to develop and breed optimal grandparent and parent stock. It depends on veterinarians to raise hearty and healthy animals descended from that stock and employs biologists to conduct and review pathogen and non-pathogen related tests. Protein producers rely on professionals to do their jobs, and professionals rely on data.
Data is an investment that you pay to collect and store. Smart Data Science Solutions (SDSS) believes that data is an underutilized resource in the poultry industry, and that we can help achieve a greater return on that investment.
WHO ANALYZES YOUR DATA?
THE NUTRITIONIST WHO TOOK THE MOST STATISTICS COURSES?
THE ACCOUNTANT WHO HAS THE MOST EXPERIENCE IN EXCEL?
Don’t get us wrong – we applaud and appreciate the data analysts in your company! They work hard and have insights into a deep and complex world. But we are professional data scientists and statisticians, and we manage, analyze, and interpret
data for a living. We are experts in traditional methods, and we stay abreast of new developments in statistics by reading, interacting, and contributing to the literature. We can add value.
The investment in data starts with its collection. Is the data that is currently collected useful in answering an interesting question or questions? Is it relevant to choices and decisions being made in your supply chain? Is it misleading, or biased? Let us help you eliminate useless data and focus on data that can provide actionable insights.
Once the data is collected, how is it managed? Many companies struggle with data silos, in which data from one
area of operations is not available and useful to other areas. SDSS has data management plans and software tools
that allow data to be better used across the supply chain.
Learning from data requires using appropriate and valid statistical techniques – sometimes very complicated ones! Once data is collected and stored, and made available to the necessary users, it must be utilized in statistically sound ways. Access to data can be dangerous if it is used incorrectly. Given the question at hand, or the problem you are attempting to solve, SDSS can
make sure that the conclusions drawn from your data are valid and robust. Are there confounders? Mediators? Moderators? You don’t have to worry about those things, because we do.
