Episode Description

The buzz: “Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road” (Stewart Brand). The Industrial Machinery and Component (IM&C) sector is seeing new opportunities – and new challenges – from a steady stream of breakthrough innovations like 3D-Printing, Machine Learning, Digital Twins, Blockchains and others. But management is demanding, “Show me the value!” The bottom line: IM&C companies need to take advantage of breakthroughs to grow revenue, lower costs, and optimize assets. But how? The experts speak. Debbie Kupitzer, Capgemini: “This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons” (Talledega Nights). Steven Shepley, Deloitte: “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change” (Leon C. Megginson). Sachin Bapat, SAP: “Uber yourself before you get Kodaked” (Marcus Shingles). Join us for Manufacturing Innovations: The Value of Breakthroughs?
