Episode 1 | Following the Digital Thread: Revolutionizing Supply Chains | MITSMR

#DigitalThread #SupplyChain #MITSloan ==> As digital technologies grow more sophisticated and data proliferates, manufacturers have an opportunity to transform how they make things through an emerging technology called the digital thread.

In Part 1 of our eight-part video series, we explore the real power of the digital thread, which lies not just in a “cradle-to-grave” virtual rendering of the manufacturing process, but also in the possibility of taking the lessons learned from analyzing product performance and applying them to future generations of the manufacturing process and product design.

Future tech will give you the benefits of city life anywhere | Julio Gil | TED@UPS


Thinking about Country Living. Don’t believe predictions that say the future is trending towards city living. Urbanization is actually reaching the end of its cycle, says logistics expert Julio Gil, and soon more people will be choosing to live (and work) in the countryside, thanks to rapid advances in augmented reality, autonomous delivery, off-the-grid energy and other technologies.

Instagram Micro Lessons from #HurricaneIrma | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche

Micro Lesson #HurricaneIrma 2

Micro Lessons using our Instagram Photos #InstagramMicroLessons in our courses.

One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to our home in Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses this coming week. We are going to use our Instagram pictures to follow the hurricane and share our thoughts, analyses, and decisions to protect our family and friends. We were in our bunker (condo) hosting a family of five friends who evacuated Miami.

Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:

  • Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
  • Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
  • City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership

Follow @DrLepervanche via Instagram for more #InstagramMicroLessons

This week we will add some of these points to our weekly discussion. Have a great week.
