Authoritative Automation Part One – Maturing Your Digital Transformation

By Quinn Foster

Welcome to Talking Aerospace Today – a podcast for the aerospace and defense industry. A place that brings the promise of tomorrow’s technology to the ears of our listeners today.

Automation in the context of digital transformation maturity starts with “automating the mundane,” delegating dull, repetitive tasks that take up engineers’ time to computers and machines. Of course, that is not all automation can do. With enough time and investment, aerospace and defense companies (A&D) can begin instituting “authoritative automation,” or taking more complex real world activities and automating them digitally.

In this episode, Todd Tuthill, Vice President of the A&D Industry for Siemens Digital Industries Software, guides listeners on what authoritative automation entails, how it differs from the automation discussed in previous episodes, and what authoritative automation looks like in a relatable, non-A&D setting.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The definition of authoritative automation
  • How authoritative automation differs from “automating the mundane”
  • How to get from automating the mundane to authoritative automation
  • A relatable example of authoritative automation outside the industry
