How to create an analytically enabled workforce

Post-OK

 

The Manufacturing Digitalisation Symposium discussion session convened Tableau’s James Smith, Salesforce’s Robert Heys, and Stanley Black & Decker’s Paul Turner with representatives from leading manufacturing organizations to discuss how firms can better compete globally by using digital capabilities to create the Factory of the Future.

According to Mr. Turner, manufacturers should prioritize upskilling their existing workforce. He stressed the importance of bringing everybody along on the journey, engaging staff to help them learn the new technologies.

“It requires a lot of forethought”, he said. “It’s not just the algorithmic side of these analytics solutions, but the human side of how people engage with it.”

To achieve the best results, Turner said, it is important to involve all areas in the process: design-thinking experts and UI experts as well as domain experts. All these areas need to come together to build the bridge that leads to the Factory of the Future.

He then went on to explain how Stanley Black & Decker uses DeepHow to quickly upskill its workforce — and how DeepHow's AI software analyses a recording of someone performing a task, before transforming it into short, digestible pieces of content that can be consumed quickly.
