Because the digital transformation of industry is so clearly focused on data and technology, it can be easy to lose sight of the human aspect of this change. But enabling humans—from frontline plant floor operators to corporate executives—to do their jobs better and make their businesses more efficient and profitable is, ultimately, why the digital transformation is taking place. That’s why Dow Inc. partnered with Siemens and MxD (the Chicago-based center built in partnership with Department of Defense to advance U.S. manufacturing) to create a testbed for the optimization of tools for a more mobile industrial workforce. The testbed centers around a separation column—commonly used in the processing industries for multi-stage processes such as distillation, stripping, absorption, and extraction—outfitted with an array of Siemens technologies.
