This week’s webinar featured inside secrets of smart manufacturing from industry experts from Corning,
the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute and OSIsoft LLC. (You can get the on-demand version here.)
We asked one of the expert presenters, Corning development associate, technology & engineering Daniel Ricketts, a few questions about his perspective on the topic. Take a look…
Smart Industry: What’s one secret to smart manufacturing?
Daniel: It’s a collaborative effort. It’s not just one group or one function. You have to partner the IT and OT and process teams to achieve success.
Smart Industry: How can a manufacturer leverage an ecosystem of advanced analytics solutions to help them solve tough manufacturing problems?
Daniel: It starts with having data collected in the right context. The critical piece is data available to analytics engines or people.
Smart Industry: You are focused on achieving advantaged and transferable outcomes. What does that mean?
Daniel: It means looking at having data-analytics solutions completed as one-off projects. People are trying to solve specific problems—so how do you take that solution and make it a part of manufacturing plant. You can leverage that in an ongoing basis, as opposed to troubleshooting when something comes up.
