SMA Presents on Knowledge Management at DC Conference

October 30, 2013

On October 24 - 25, George Washington University in Washington, DC, held the 10th International Conference on Intellectual Capital, Knowledge Management and Organizational Learning. The conference brought together many different nations around the world and served as a means for all parties to share their past, present, and future research with other in an open forum. Each presenter would discuss the details of his/her research on different subjects ranging from how cultural differences effect company structures to how to select the correct person for a project based on their subject matter expertise. The fundamental concept of each presentation featured some form of Knowledge Management within an organization as a major key to success.

Representing Sumitomo, Applications Project Engineer Adam Soder, and R & D Technician Bart Holmes attended the conference and presented a case study in a presentation titled: "Turning Data Into Action: A Real-World case study of Organizational Learning and Strategy Development Through Applied Knowledge Management". The presentation discussed current testing strategies used with our "Smart Gearbox" technology; Sumitomo is using installed gearboxes to gather temperature and vibration data in their normal operation. This data will then be analyzed so that we predict when a gearbox is going to fail. The presentation was received by approximately 25 academic and research professionals, all of whom were greatly impressed to see the Knowledge Management principles that they have been researching and studying for years, were actually being put into practice by an Industrial company for improvement.
