Chad Markle, partner, Kalypso
Peggy speaks with Chad Markle, partner, Kalypso, about connected manufacturing, who says manufacturing has relied on advancing technologies to get a competitive edge. Manufacturers are used to exploring technologies and are focused on ROI, he explains. He adds that the focus in the beginning is to find an enlightened executive and then develop a solid strategy. He suggests keeping it small in the beginning, discover results, and then scale quickly. He points to the example of a client who asked: can we leverage generative design and advanced machine learning to generate fixtures that are generated by the machine? He elaborates on this example and what is entailed. He says the future is bright and it is exciting because it allows us to reshore and bring back some of the manufacturing capabilities that we offshored.
