David McPhail Inteviewed at FabTech on Manufacturing Talk Radio - Discusses MTConnect and Memex Automation
David McPhail did a great interview at FabTech last week on Wednesday the 12th on Manufacturing Talk Radio!
David does a fantastic job educating the hosts on MTConnect as well as Memex Automation's ability to talk to ANYTHING on the shop floor. David puts everything in the language that everyone inside or outside of manufacturing can easily understand and appreciate. David talks about MTConnect at the beginning and really gets into specifics at the end of the interview.
I thought the interviewers did an outstanding job in the types of questions asked as well as the follow up questions.
David starts speaking at the 129 minute mark on Wednesday. David's segment is about 25 minutes in length.
David brings out a very important metric. If you ask a shop or plant what their utilization is, invariably they will state something in the area of 65%. When you actually come in and measure it, the number is more like 27% to 32% That is a HUGE difference! As David states, "if you cannot measure it, you cannot manage it."
