Manufacturing is one of the most important contributors to Asia Pacific's economy and is going through a rapid digital transformation. With unforeseen pandemic interruptions to factory operations in the past two years, smart manufacturing comes to the forefront in 2022.
International Metalworking News for Asia's coverage on smart factory presents three noteworthy interviews of some of the big names in the industry. Let's start with an interview with TRUMPF South East Asia / Pacific's Head of Smart Factory Solutions. In this story, Wolfgang Liertz discussed Industry 4.0 and the trends to watch out for in 2022. He also explained TRUMPF's mission to further develop and digitally connect production technology, to make it even more efficient, precise, and future-proof.
On this note, we were invited to a virtual roundtable where Bas Kuper, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Asia Pacific, Siemens Digital Industries Software, along with Tim Srock, CEO of Mendix, and Vincent Lim, Vice President, and Head of Asia Pacific, Siemens-Mendix shared their perspectives on how the future of manufacturing will evolve in 2022 and beyond. Siemens is seeing a big drive for digitalisation, as a means for a closer collaboration, between different functional domains within a customer. Currently, companies are not just facing a technological challenge, but an organisational one as well.
Rockwell Automation has been present in Vietnam since 2007, contributing significantly to its business across Asia and worldwide. In March 2022, Rockwell Automation has appointed Pham Kieu Trinh, as Country Manager effective immediately. A month into the job, we interviewed Trinh to find out her plans on how to help companies in Vietnam to speed up their digital technology and automation adoptions to promote Industry 4.0 transformation.
All these machine tool builders and experts through contributions on both a grand scale and more closely felt at home, are helping move our manufacturing community, locally and globally, toward new ways of understanding our current reality, using their technical know-how, positions, and points of view to bring us all closer to the next stage of doing better and being better. Together, we're not just waiting for what comes next; we are all helping to create it.
