About this Episode

This week on the podcast, (@AugmentedPod) we have Dr. Gunter Beitinger, SVP of Manufacturing at Siemens AG joining us for a conversation about the digital transformation of the factory floor. Dr. Gunter is also the Head of Factory Digitalization and Head of Product Carbon Footprint/SiGreen (@beitgugb) (@Siemens). Futurist Trond Undheim hosts (@trondau), this is episode #79 of Season 2 and the topic is: The Future Factory.

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, and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

Trond's takeaway: It is pretty clear that the factory of the future will look different from that of the past but what's less clear is the path to get there and what role digitalization will play in getting us there. What does seem clear is that we still need creative heads. We need people to produce the needed innovations and machines to hum, along with to the human beat, as opposed to the other way around.
