Have you been hearing about “Digital Transformation” and “Smart Manufacturing” but want to know if these are anything more than buzzwords? Are you wondering how to start taking advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things in your manufacturing operation? Wouldn’t it be nice if someone just simplified and explained these topics in a way that you could understand them while hanging out at a bar? Well, our panelists answered all of these questions and more during our first ever LIVE episode of Manufacturing Happy Hour, recorded at the unofficial Automation Fair 2019 Kick-Off Party in Chicago.
We were joined by 3 experts in Digital Transformation for this episode – including Tom Gaudet from https://www.ptc.com/ (PTC), Beth Parkinson from https://www.rockwellautomation.com/ (Rockwell Automation), and Ryan Wasmund from https://conceptsystemsinc.com/ (Concept Systems) – who shared their insights and examples of successful Industrial Internet of Things implementations throughout this beer-fueled discussion. And, in an effort to avoid excessive industry jargon, we kicked the conversation up a notch by playing “The Digital Transformation Drinking Game” from start to finish. Curious how that turned out? Then tune in to this week’s episode for actionable advice, starter tips, and a little bit of fun around Digital Transformation.
