Show Notes

Data is not a cost - it is an asset!

The surge of data available to industrial manufacturing has been moving at an exponential rate.  Industrial 4.0, smart manufacturing and IIoT can make the best engineers feel like they are drinking from a fire hydrant.  Robert Cooke is on a mission to help people connect with data in a meaningful way.

In this thought provoking conversation Robert shares how he founded 3 Forge with the idea of building a full stack platform that puts the most important information in front of people when they need it the most.  He shares how there are three ways to engage with data: asking, reacting and inputting. 

Robert unpacks a ton of insight into how Complex Event Processing engines interact with multiple streams of data to create screens that make sense to the users in the moment.  For those wanting to learn how to begin a career in this sector he shares impactful advice on the programs and classes that will put you on the best path.  Hint - if you love math pay attention as that will be a huge factor for success.

As you think about the data at your facility consider how it is being utilized.  For most there is an opportunity to optimize and through solutions like 3Forge that reality is hitting the plant floor. 

Grab a notebook and sit back as Robert connects the dots between people and data in this powerful idea episode.

Enjoy and keep asking why!
