The Augmenting Power of Operational Data

The Augmenting Power of Operational Data

This week on Season 2 of the Augmented Podcast (@augmented), Rony Kubat, CTO, and Cofounder of Tulip Interfaces (@Tulip) (@ronykubat), joins futurist Trond Undheim (@trondau) in a conversation about how operational data can be augmented using machine intelligence coupled with human interpretation.

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 (@trondau), and presented by Tulip, the frontline operations platform.

Trond's takeaway: The power of capturing both manual and machine processes in manufacturing comes when you start to be able to connect silos of shop data and shop floor data, to get a time series of the data attached to the product. It is not necessarily easy but when you achieve it, you have a great starting point for a true understanding of the manufacturing process.
