After leading a number of organizations through turn-arounds in 20-years with the U.S Air Force, Leading2Lean CEO Keith Barr has had a long career as a leader in the manufacturing technology sector. He believes that manufacturing can only survive by evolving and adapting to new technologies and digital lean methodologies. However, he is also a contrarian that believes that manufacturers too often ignore the human equation. Barr knows that the most powerful computer on the planet is the human mind. For him, Manufacturing 4.0 must connect IoT cyber-physical resources and data to human problem solving. Keith insists that plant managers need truth, rather than data alone. Solving problems on the factory floor requires employee engagement, aligning of management objectives, and creating an environment that promotes constant enhancement of product and process.
