Jon Nelson, Director of the Medical Device Practice at Kalypso talks about the power of digital twins for digital transformation
To understand how artificial intelligence is helping employees to transition and adapt within the changing world of work, Digital Journal heard from Jordan Reynolds, Global Director of Data Science, Kalypso.
We’ve merely scratched the surface of the practical applications of these intelligent technologies in broader industries. Below are five concrete functions of AI and ML being used right now to help businesses and their employees regain momentum and stability on the other end of the crisis.
“The past year and a half have shown us the importance of robust, nimble and resilient processes and IT systems that can both withstand sudden change and adapt to many concurrent modes of operation,” says Chelsea Barnes, a leader in Kalypso’s organizational change management and digital practices.
Kalypso director of data science Jordan Reynolds told VentureBeat, “Major advancements in autonomous system performance are attributable to model predictive control (MPC), a digital twin methodology that simulates how a complex system will respond to operational inputs and changes in its environment.”
At Rockwell Automation Fair 2021, Jordan Reynolds, global director of data science at Kalypso (a Rockwell Automation company), gave a presentation on autonomous systems that helped explain how these advanced neural systems, as they’re applied in industry, can be seen as extensions of the PID (proportional-integral-derivative) closed loop control systems with which we’re all familiar.
On the labor side, George Young, global managing director at Kalypso, a Rockwell Automation company, is seeing investment in knowledge capture from subject-matter experts and system modeling. “We can build advanced models and use it to demonstrate how the plant will run before it breaks ground,” he said. “For labor, there’s a need for a different kind of operator and fewer lower-skilled laborers for autonomous operation. But you need more highly skilled labor. Sometimes you can turn those old operators into the new ones you need.”
Ingles and Tisdell headlined the wide-ranging panel discussion at the Food and Beverage Industry Forum focusing on consumer-packaged goods (CPG) on the first day of Automation Fair 2021 this week in Houston.

“By going through these near-death experiences during Covid, companies understand what the stakes are and what they need to do to respond to this environment,” said Steve Riordan, global director, consumer and life sciences, at consulting firm Kalypso.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has exploded, creating unprecedented demand for IoT-enabled devices, services, and solutions – with global spending expected to exceed one trillion U.S. dollars by 2022.
Brittany Hamm, global digital services lead at professional services provider Kalypso, a unit of Rockwell Automation, discusses knowing exactly when it's time to switch cloud providers. It can be an agonizing process that requires careful consideration, analysis, and planning.
In what has become the “new normal,” industrial manufacturers are realizing large productivity gains by leveraging extended reality (XR) technologies to support digital manufacturing.
Colin Speakman, principal at Kalypso, discusses turning data into information with actionable insights enables an organization to develop a sense of how they should react and prepare for a new normal.
"The biggest thing that you could do upfront [in your digital transformation journey] is listen," says Chelsea Barnes. "Get all levels of the organization engaged and be a part of defining the journey, not just [those who will be] receiving the end product."
For many consumer goods manufacturers, COVID-19 exposed issues with their digital thread – the way they discover, create, make and sell new products.
A smart factory journey promises strong value, but it can be counterproductive if embarked upon incorrectly, resulting in reduced efficiency and wasted capital. Here are five steps for a successful journey.
Collecting and analyzing data is a challenge that traditional manufacturing systems are not designed for – and manufacturers are missing out on valuable insights as a result.

AI as part of your digital transformation is great, but don't leave the humans behind. George Young argues in The Evolving Enterprise that OCM teams must not be treated as an afterthought to the digital transition.
Colin Speakman writes about how the food and beverage industry can enable traceability with blockchain, but first we need to establish industry-wide standards.
