Episode Description

The buzz: Manufacturing. Manufacturing processes are rapidly accelerating, as shop-floor-management-by-clipboard yields to mobile-powered efficiencies and real-time analytics. But manufacturers still face tough challenges: overwhelming amounts of Big Data; poor production quality; embarrassing cost overruns; new global competitors; consumer demands for customization; the aging workforce; social media cries for environmental responsibility; and agility-deterring siloed internal functions. So much to fix, so little time. The experts speak. Adel Kahn, Fujitsu: “In God we trust; all others must bring data” (Edward Deming). Matthew Littlefield, LNS Research: “Perfection is impossible. However, striving for perfection is not. Do the best you can under the conditions that exist. That is what counts” (John Wooden). Frank Platt, SAP: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” (Arthur C Clarke). Join us for Speed of Manufacturing: Zooming from Idea to Performance.
