About this Episode

This week on the podcast (@AugmentedPod), futurist Trond Undheim interviews Erik Mirandette, Head of Product and Ecosystem at Tulip Interfaces (@tulipinterfaces). 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.

Trond's 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.
