This week’s webinar featured inside secrets of smart manufacturing from industry experts from Corning,

Corning's Daniel Ricketts

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.
