DMG MORI's Digital Lean Journey

DMG MORI's Digital Lean Journey

Our guest is Marius Schmiedt, Head of Operational Excellence, DMG MORI (@dmgmorieu), for episode 66 of Augmented Podcast (@augmentedpod). 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), presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

In this conversation, they talk about the operational aspects of industrial manufacturer DMG Mori's pathbreaking digital transformation.  Please note that this episode was recorded in November of 2021.

Trond's takeaway
Deep industrial transformation is not just a digital challenge but requires a fundamentally different operational mindset, beyond Lean Management, one that more fully embraces the potential of the human, industrial frontline worker. That shift is a journey, not a switch. On the other hand, the impact over time, measured in months not in years, is not only an immense return on investment but also a transition from dirty, dangerous and dull jobs to ever cleaner, safer and more exciting jobs.
