About this Episode

Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations, where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. 

In episode 8 of the podcast (@AugmentedPod), the topic is: Productizing Quality. Our guest is Surbhi Krishna Singh, CEO & co-founder, Firevisor.

In this conversation, we talk about How she once jumped over the boundary wall and escaped school, her engineering degree, working for Seagate and Micron and being an outlier-- a woman in engineering and manufacturing. We discuss productizing quality improvements in manufacturing and her startup, Firevisor.

Augmented is a podcast for industry leaders and operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim, presented by Tulip.co, the frontline operations platform, and associated with MFG.works, the industrial upskilling community launched at the World Economic Forum. Each episode dives deep into a contemporary topic of concern across the industry and airs at 9 am US Eastern Time every Wednesday. Augmented--the industry 4.0 podcast--industrial conversations that matter.

Trond's takeaway: At the Augmented podcast, in tracing and anticipating the contours of the emerging future of industry 4.0, we try to have a special focus on diversity, for example on women in manufacturing, or on young trailblazers, or individuals that represent both, as in this case. We need all perspectives onboard if industry is going to transform in a positive way. Industry is, in many ways, the last bastion of resistance against several areas of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). I truly hope this is the last decade we need to describe industry this way. An issue so core to humankind such as manufacturing should be co-developed by all
