046: The IT Journey to Digital Manufacturing

 

On this episode, Craig and Thom welcome Isaac Bennett, Digital Transformation and IT Director at Detroit Manufacturing Systems.  Isaac understands the need for a transformation to digital manufacturing for any company that wants to remain innovative and competitive in today’s digital workspace.  He shares ways that companies can maximize value within the supply chain and how IT can be used to better identify and solve business problems. As a speaker at the Leadership Seminar, Isaac will share ideas on where to start with smart manufacturing, what companies need to tackle first when approaching a digital transformation, and how to maximize the business value of digital manufacturing.  


Note: The Leadership Seminar: Journey to Industry 4.0 Seminar mentioned in this episode has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Check back here for more updates. 


On today’s podcast, you will learn:


The need for a transformation to digital manufacturing

  • Manufacturing tends to be the main driver behind a company’s digital transformation

  • The goal of making products more efficient and effective is driving the digital transformation

  • Because the greatest ROI generally happens in manufacturing, more innovation and analytics happens within manufacturing as well

  • Departments need to focus on solutions that offer a great impact with the potential for scaling the plan across the company


Maximizing value within the supply chain 

  • Customers within manufacturing would benefit from increased EDI (electronic data interchange) and embracing blockchain

  • A central portal for all providers and suppliers would offer solutions and increased communication between manufacturers, including Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies. 

  • Innovative companies need to stay up-to-date and on the edge of the most current technologies

  • PLM solution providers need to work to catch up to current technologies

  • Cloud computing security needs to be a greater topic of conversation


Using IT to identify and solve business problems

  • Software is only as good as the people using it

  • Proper training is essential for a successful transformation 

  • Identify workflow bottle-necks to better understand processes and problems

  • Value stream mapping is an essential method for more effective management

045: Social Tightening in a World of Social Distancing

Posted By Digital Enterprise Society, Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, March 24, 2020

045: Social Tightening in a World of Social Distancing

 

In today’s episode, Thom Singer addresses the topic that is on everyone’s mind right now — the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it is having on every aspect of life.  The spread of the coronavirus has forced many of us to work from home, bringing disruption to not only how people are getting work done but also to their equally important social connections.  We at the Digital Enterprise Society are here to support you.  Join Thom as he shares several practical ideas that will help you effectively connect with others during this uncertain time.  

On today’s podcast, you will learn:

The “why” behind social tightening in times of uncertainty

  • First and foremost, recognize that every interaction you have is with a human being that is coping with these uncertain times in their own way

  • The epidemic of loneliness started long before the corona virus arrived

  • We are all in this together and we all need each other 

  • Begin with empathy — try to understand how people are personally being affected 

  • Maintain contact with The Big Five 

    • Your family — both in your house and extended family

    • Your friends — don’t let them feel distanced or alone

    • Your work contacts — your boss and coworkers

    • Your clients — offer to help however you can

    • Your community — find ways to serve those who are in need 

Tips for tightening relationships while social distancing 

  • Aim to be more personal and less broadcast in your communications 

  • Schedule regular check-ins with people that matter

  • Take time to send handwritten notes 

  • Initiate a virtual coffee or happy hour meet-up to connect with your social network 

  • Use calendar reminders to dedicate time to connect with people

  • Make a list of 50 people you would like to socially tighten with while socially distancing

  • Be understanding and patient with coworkers if they drop the ball 

  • Actively engage in social media to let people know that you are there for them

Tips for maintaining sanity and productivity at home 

  • Focus on being as productive as you can, within reason

    • Identify a clear start and stop time for each day

    • Communicate your work plan with your family 

    • Have a list of goals and projects you can accomplish during this time

  • Keep up with the news to maintain awareness of the current situation

  • Schedule personal time to maintain sanity — get out into nature

  • Have a family activity every day — eat dinner together, watch a movie, go on a walk

044: Synergizing the Future of PLM

Posted By Digital Enterprise Society, Wednesday, March 18, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, March 17, 2020

044: Synergizing the Future of PLM

 

On thisepisode, Thom and Craig welcome Altair Kaminski, the PLM administrator in the space sector at Northrop Grumman.  Altair has joined the podcast to share her perspective on the possibility of integrating the big three silos of PLM, ERP, and MES into companies of any size, and details some of the current challenges that the Aerospace Working Group is working to overcome as the digital enterprise moves forward.  Most importantly, Altair shares her perspective on the importance of both mentoring and networking within any industry. If you want to gain a better understanding of the hard work and rewards that take place within the best subgroups of the Digital Enterprise Society, this episode is for you.

On today’s podcast, you will learn:

The future of the Big Three

  • Potential synergies between PLM, ERP, and MES may be a possibility in the future

  • Because each tool plays a specific role, it would be difficult for one software program to support all three within one toolset

  • Overlap between systems has the potential to complicate integration

  • The user experience within each of these domains is significantly different 

The work of the Aerospace Working Group

  • A brief history that brought three major aerospace companies together to minimize overlap and maximize efficiency.

  • Combining interest and awareness increases opportunities for all companies.

  • Additional subgroups have been created to tackle current challenges, including

    • Increased understanding of implementation of model-based systems engineering. 

    • Seeking a better industry definition of MBSE

    • Integration of toolsets and reusing digital information to include the digital thread and digital twin

    • Options to best involve suppliers in the reuse of data

    • Migrating and eliminating the excessive legacy data that comes with aerospace and defense companies

    • Engaging software vendors in offering assistance with upgrades so that companies can take advantage of the latest and greatest features

    • Handling continuous release of software updates 

    • While PLM is getting too large to manage as a single group, subgroups can now offer specific feedback to various pieces of the toolset

 

Mentoring and networking advice 

 

  • The evolution of the Digital Enterprise Society and its benefit for companies of any size and employees of any experience level

  • Experienced employees need to be willing to mentor those who ask

  • Providing good mentors can protect against poaching of a company’s best employees.

  • There is incredible value in getting involved and helping large companies like Siemens understand how heavily we rely on them to communicate with each other, suppliers, and customers. 


Correction- at [23:00] the guest incorrectly stated that what was previously PLM World is now Realize Live.  Rather, in 2019 Siemens took ownership of the Siemens PLM Connections - Americas annual conference previously hosted by the independent users group PLM World. Digital Enterprise Society was founded by a PLM World transitional Board of Directors.

GUEST BIO:  

Altair Kaminski is a senior business process analyst and PLM administrator in the space sector at Northrop Grumman.  After attending Westminster College in Utah she worked for ATK as a process engineer with a focus on composites layup, then moved to L3 Communications where she worked for five years as a process engineer.  While there Altair began working on Big Bang, the process of transferring the company’s legacy systems into the Big Three — the PLM, ERP, and MES systems. Following this project Altair was the manager of the PLM team.  It was while there that she was asked to lead the same implementation project at Orbital ATK, where she works today.
