My guest this week is Professor James Woudhuysen. Having graduated with a degree in physics back in the seventies, James has been surrounded by technology in one form or another throughout his professional career. He is a writer, designer and forecaster of all things tech. James gives us an academic insight on the European perspective of manufacturing, where we are now and what may need to be done in order to truly realise the industrial renaissance.
My guest on this my first show is Cathie Hall, Chief Executive of Syspro Europe, a company which develops ERP solutions. An ERP System automates and integrates core business processes such as taking customer orders, scheduling operations, and keeping inventory records and financial data. Cathie explains what ERP is, what it does and how she became obsessed by manufacturing. I'm hoping that Cathie will be influential in convincing the younger generation of an exciting career in manufacturing.
