Jose has been transforming business processes for 30 years, including Design Engineering,Lean Manufacturing, Finance and Procurement. In the last 6 years, his primary effort has been on the digital transformation of Caterpillar's end-to-end value chain. His 5 year goal is to deliver the first operating generation of an autonomous value network. In 2019, Jose will be taking deep dives into Value Stream(operation level) digitization, including significant retrofitting of aged manufacturing assets with IoT, defining requirements for converging “Bill-of-X”systems of record (e.g., Bill-of-Materials, Bill-of-Processes,Bill-of-Distribution, etc.); and standing up more blockchain pilots to better understand smart contracts as a way to "close the loop" across value streams and supply chains, and other related value chain/supply chain/OT transformation processes.
