I congratulate the authors for their interesting and insightful discussion on big data in production environments. Although problems with big data are trendy research topics, there are many practical opportunities and challenges for its use by quality practitioners for data-driven activities such as assurance, diagnosis, monitoring, and control. I appreciate the opportunity to discuss and provide my insights on the topic. In the following, I confine my assessments to data acquisition and preprocessing, and statistical methods for quality engineering.
