The Age of Collaborative Platforms and return of human-only skills
The traditional Fall Excursion of the IACDE German Club took place from 21 to 22 September 2017 in Izmir, Turkey, on the occasion of the Hugo Boss OPEX day on Sept. 22, 2017. The day before our group comprising 24 Designer and Associated members enjoyed a special IACDE-shaped factory tour through the production halls and Technology department of Hugo Boss and gained awesome and extraordinary insights in a modern and state of the art clothing manufacturing company.
Since 2005 Hugo Boss’ Operational Excellence Day has been a day of sharing and learning across hundreds of local and global companies who hold a passion for excellence. This year Operational Excellence Day, hosting professionals and companies from different sectors, took place on September 22, 2017. Digitalization adds a new dimension to automation through connecting systems via networks and collaborative platforms. With the help of big data, digitalization also paves the way to the “internet of things” (IoT) and smart systems which lead us to a new industrial era; called Industry 4.0. Developments in previously disjointed fields such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing and genetics and biotechnology are all building on and amplifying one another.
To simplify, the future of manufacturing with its collaborative platforms enable connected systems to interact with each other in every phase of manufacturing, from the first design phase to final delivery to customers. With the help of collaborative platforms, all key players (designers, manufacturers, suppliers, wholesalers, service providers) will be able to interact at the same level. This will have an absolute impact on future jobs and company operations through leveraging human only skills such as subjective reasoning, negotiation, imagination, storytelling, creativity and many more. In essence, technical skills will need to be supplemented with strong social and collaboration skills. This year’s Operational Excellence Day aimed to lead a discussion of professionals and companies from different sectors in a collaborative and inspirational platform in order to put a spotlight on this new era.
