Senior Director of Production Engineering, Continuous Improvement & OpEx at Leggett & Platt Riad Ardagi joins us from OPEX San Diego where he discusses his interest in being the interaction of man and machine. He spent some time on the GM Saturn plant floor transforming business operations through robotics. The first time. And so Riad brings learnings from that intelligent automation to this intelligent automation. Ironically, he discusses the fact that he’s got a fair number of manufacturing jobs in Kentucky as we speak. He works with employees on bringing in robotics, training the machines and then moving into more value add work- if you can imagine that. And as past is prologue , Riad discusses OpEx lessons from his time at Toyota including the importance of jidoka.
