Manufacturing Survival: Idea to Performance
September 25, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Manufacturing. Reality check: manufacturers must adapt or die. Survival means automating your shop floor, deploying M2M technology, leveraging Big Data. What else? What is government’s role? The experts speak. Brian Raymond, National Association of Manufacturers: “We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there" (East Bound and Down, "Smoky and the Bandit" theme song, sung by Jerry Reed, 1977). Mike Walton, Atos: “If the leader is filled with high ambition and he pursues his aims with audacity and strength of will, he will reach them in spite of all obstacles!” (Karl von Clausewitz). Scott Bolick, SAP: “The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment.” (Warren G. Bennis) Join us for Manufacturing Survival: Idea to Performance.
