About this Episode

Today’s guest is Chandra Brown, CEO, MxD for episode 58 of Augmented Podcast (@AugmentedPod). The topic is: Manufacturing x Digital.

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 (@tulipinterfaces), the frontline operations platform.

In this conversation, we talked about manufacturing leadership, how to achieve digital manufacturing success, and fighting the skills and perception gap. We also touched on the activities of Chicago-based manufacturing institute MxD, and the future outlook of the industry.

Trond's takeaway: Manufacturing leadership is in good hands with Chicago-based manufacturing institute MxD. Digital manufacturing success takes constant R&D, experimentation, and learning from failure and success. If MxD’s approach took hold, the skills and perception gaps that persist would start to dissipate. As long as idea exchange continues to accelerate, the future outlook of the industry is bright.
