    The Augmenting Power of Operational Data

    The Augmenting Power of Operational Data

    This week on Season 2 of the Augmented Podcast (@augmented), Rony Kubat, CTO, and Cofounder of Tulip Interfaces (@Tulip) (@ronykubat), joins futurist Trond Undheim (@trondau) in a conversation about how operational data can be augmented using machine intelligence coupled with human interpretation.

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What’s next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

    Trond's takeaway: The power of capturing both manual and machine processes in manufacturing comes when you start to be able to connect silos of shop data and shop floor data, to get a time series of the data attached to the product. It is not necessarily easy but when you achieve it, you have a great starting point for a true understanding of the manufacturing process.

    Life Science Manufacturing Systems

    Life Science Manufacturing Systems

    Incoming! This week's episode of the Augmented Podcast (@AugmentedPod) features a conversation with futurist Trond Undheim (@trondau) and Dr. Gilad Langer, Manufacturing Practice Lead at Tulip (@tulipinterfaces). In this conversation, we talk about the evolution, the experiences, the challenges, and the future opportunities of life science manufacturing systems. This is episode 78 of Season Two and the topic is: "Life Science Manufacturing Systems."

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What’s next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

    Trond's takeaway: Life sciences are challenging: the traditional paradigm of industrial techniques. Bio-manufacturing in particular poses challenges to many existing systems. As such, the industry's work with ISP's pharma 4.0 initiative is bearing fruit. However, the dialogue with regulatory authorities still seems to be one the industry is trying to educate governments on. Nevertheless, once governments get it and are willing to adapt regulations, we might see even more rapid advances given the importance and scope of the new manufacturing techniques that are opening up and await regulatory approval.

    From Predictive to Diagnostic Manufacturing Augmentation

    From Predictive to Diagnostic Manufacturing Augmentation

    This week on the podcast, Trond is in conversation with returning guest and colleague, Roy Shilkrot, the Lead Scientist at Tulip (Tulip.co). In episode 81 of Season 2 of the Augmented podcast, the topic is "From Predictive to Diagnostic Manufacturing Augmentation." In this conversation, we're diving further into machine learning in manufacturing and emerging applications.

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What’s next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

    My takeaway: Industrial tech is not what it used to be and will never again be a bulky inflexible instrument because we are entering an age with immediate feedback and rapid adjustments and a combination of human and machine. Diagnostic manufacturing is, in fact, quite different from a time when we had to wait until the product was onerous to see what could be wrong with it.

    Low on Code, High on Process

    Low on Code, High on Process

    Joining us this week on the podcast is CEO and Founder of Pyze, Inc. (@PyzeInc) Prabhjot Singh (@psinghSF.) Here with futurist Trond Undheim to talk all about business process intelligence, the workflows in manufacturing and logistics, and the future outlook for low-code in industrial applications, the episode is 76 and the topic is: "Low on Code, High on Process."

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What’s next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn? How to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

    Trond's takeaway: Business process intelligence is the "why" of technology. Because smoother operations are where the value of technology is realized. The future outlook for low code in industrial operations is bright because it has the potential to streamline workflows in manufacturing and logistics. However, it is important to keep in mind that to leverage automation to do better decisions, and not just to squeeze out more with less--that starts with keeping in mind what the real problem is and steering with that in mind. If you don't know, figure out the problem and then invest in the process and if technology gets you there, invest.

    Designing a Worker Friendly Industrial System

    Designing a Worker Friendly Industrial System

    This week on the podcast (augmentedpod), futurist Trond Undheim interviews Erik Mirandette, Head of Product and Ecosystem at Tulip. This is episode 75 of Season 2: "Designing a Worker Friendly Industrial System."

    In this conversation, we talk about what designing and redesigning a worker-friendly industrial system might entail, how to build capabilities and not point solutions that simply fix existing use cases to empower operators and workers along the way.
     
    My takeaway:  It is unusual to hear the case for manufacturing efficiency, coupled with worker empowerment, and then expressed so clearly as a systems dynamics problem that needs to have an overall fix instead of just attacking.

    Manufacturing 5.0

    Manufacturing 5.0

    This week on the podcast (augmentedpod), futurist Trond Undheim interviews Kathryn Kelley, Executive Director of the Ohio Manufacturing Institute at Ohio State University (@omiosumfg). This is episode 67 of Season 2, "Manufacturing 5.0"

    Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What’s next in the digital factory? Who is leading the change? What are the key skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0? Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers, and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

    My takeaway: In this conversation, we talked about industrial trends in Ohio, across the US. Ohio, along with Michigan, California, and Texas, is where the bulk of US manufacturing habits are formed. That's why tracking their thinking is important. To think that it would take decades to roll out industry 4.0 in Ohio is mind-boggling. Can it be true?
    This is why we need a new approach to industrial tech and one where training needs are drastically reduced and technology can be implemented in days and weeks instead of months and years. I believe that the opportunity exists now. Now let's roll it out, test it and see if it can happen. Training is key, and government and state-sponsored programs are an important component.
