Practical deployment of technology changes
Sean describes himself as a man “in the trenches” of advanced manufacturing. Spanning both research and production, he brings skills in engineering, continuous improvement and operations to the Manufacturing 4.0 team.
Sean’s work focuses on one question “Are we solving a problem that’s worth solving?”
Diving into the answers has led Sean and his customers to save tens of millions of dollars, save thousands of man hours, and accelerate the problem-solving process using his unique insights.
His skills enable customers to deploy new technology into manufacturing practice; taking conceptual ideas first to the plant floor and then right through to production and the boardroom.
Mature organisational business models frequently have slower adoption rates for new technology. This gives disruptors and first movers an opportunity to seize market share. Sean is fascinated by insights from data as a means of disrupting and adjusting business models to gain competitive advantage. One of his heroes is Eric Schaeffer, author of Industry X whose digital insights around product reinvention and the value shift from mechanical to digital technologies support Sean’s work in Manufacturing and Industry 4.0.
