    In my new role in leading Siemens U.S. Digital Factory Food & Beverage vertical, I’m excited about the challenge it affords, and it brings to mind my days serving as a volunteer coach for youth football in my hometown of Clarkston, MI. Organized chaos! Take a group of people, get team buy-in, instill a process and culture for success, then work together as a team to reach our desired outcome. Throughout the season you come across obstacles that are difficult tomore...

    A decade ago, the phrases “digital twin” and “virtual reality” might have seemed more like hype than reality. Today, as Chief Executive recently reported, manufacturers are leveraging digitalization to get to market faster and reduce engineering costs. Now, as digital tools and data become the new currency, companies without a long-term digitalization strategy are worried about being left behind. This was the clear message conveyed by a new study conducted by Longitudemore...

    Just weeks ago, the legendary 1980s movie Top Gun celebrated the 30th anniversary of its release.  It would go on to become a classic, from the actors who starred in it, to the memorable soundtrack and the numerous one-liners.  Everyone remembers the iconic Maverick-Goose quote, “I feel the need - the need for speed.”  More than a quarter of a century later, this one-liner is likely to be the mantra in boardrooms across the globe, from Tesla and Newport Newsmore...

    For decades, industrial control systems have been generating enormous volumes of data, but in many cases that data hasn’t been fully employed to help companies reduce operating costs, improve reliability, and increase productivity—three goals that amount to the holy grail of manufacturing. Until recently, the path forward has been blocked by insufficient compute power, storage, and machine learning technologies to allow companies to harness the richness of the data they generate.more...

    We are in a moment when exponential technology gains have the U.S. industrial base at a tipping point.Maybe a few years ago some manufacturers were skeptical of the value of advanced manufacturing and Industrial Internet of Things. But now these firms are watching as the early adopters cut costs and time to market, and increase flexibility and innovation at the same time. Instead of asking why they should embrace digitalization, many manufacturers are now asking how.more...

    As we wrap up October’s focus on the importance of manufacturing in the U.S., I want to again highlight Siemens’ workforce development initiatives that are helping to close the training gap in manufacturing. Recently, Siemens and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia hosted an industry event on this very topic where Siemens announced a hardware donation to THINC College and Career Academy, a State of Georgia Approved Charter School. This partnership will help to train Georgia’s future workforce onmore...
