How Matters - The Basis for Adaptive Engineering
July 26, 2022
In this latest article (#30) in our Everything Connected Book of Business at Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO), we step through the elements of circumstances (the Why, Who, What, Where, When and How) to define a new concept called Adaptive Engineering, an iterative process of analysis and synthesis in concurrence with design for robustness and manufacturability where we posit that How Matters!

Expanding on Systems Engineering and including ideation and Axiomatic Design principles, we break engineering into the domains of Customer, Functional, Physical and Process and use matrix methods to systematically analyze the transformation of customer needs into functional requirements, design parameters, and process variables.

Digital Twine Demystified
May 06, 2022
An enterprise is an aggregation of people, processes and platforms that come together to provide for the basis for the company.

Knitting the cybernetic fabric entails creating an end-to-end ecosystem of coordinating processes to facilitate the product pipeline. Part of the interaction takes place through physical production (the operational domain), and the other part of it is in the digital world (the information processing domain) wherein data and information related to the operational activities need to be stored, secured, represented, and utilized. It is this mélange between OT and IT that needs to be correctly ascertained for optimization and harmonization of processes, and to enable the creation of truly disruptive products and services.

Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO)'s Digital Twine is a new way of managing the product’s genesis. It is a strategy of thinking about and treating the end-to-end production process as a singular entity - an ecosystem of cooperating, self-organizing entities that are secure and make the systems work in coordination. It is an endeavor to design a platform for the ecosystem of production, linking people, organizations, data, processes, and machines in the new paradigm utilizing cloud provisionings in the same way the Internet was a new way of thinking about the exchange of information.

Digital Transformation: The Present
March 12, 2022
The success story of Amazon to create a singular market for all types of products is a testament to how digital has forever changed the way commerce would be conducted. To syndicate, compete and/or contrast with Amazon, businesses had to redefine the paradigm of being online and this brought about a host of new capabilities to the digital domain that will be detailed out in this article with specific case studies to enumerate these features.

Digital is a judicious mélange of Art and Technology, and the right blend is needed from both fields to define, design, build, govern and implement the metamorphosis that enterprises undergo in their progression. Digital Transformation is not just about technology – it is the coordinated aggregation of people, process and platform interacting to provide a cohesive whole, wherein strategy, planning, governance, change management, agile delivery and operations needed to be synchronized.

How Digital Architecture became a predominant force in this juncture will also be explained. The needs of Context, Capability Assessment, Gap Analysis, a Reference Architecture and a Solution Blueprint will be detailed for the progression of the Enterprise Architect to become a Technical Evangelist of sorts. This entailed planning with the Strategists, orchestrating the middleware interconnects (plumbing) and articulating with the Creative Designers to assemble together a User Experience that would be seamless and frictionless whether in a B2B, B2C or its variants like B2B2C, or even more involved Omni-channel and multi-channel experiences that were desired by the Customer. Integration morphed into more decoupled services with APIs and Microservices to provide real time and value added constructs to transactions.

Customer Centricity became the focus in this phase note only with Rich Customer Experiences being the goal for vendors like Adobe and Sitecore but also a whole new breed of companies formed to do what is termed as Customer Data Platform (CDP) to store master customer data, their interactions and derive actionable insights from aggregated “Big Data” using AI and ML.

Balanced Supplychain
February 25, 2022
Supply chain management is a balancing act that aims to achieve the best combination of elements to support the overall business strategy and meet customer expectations. The key to unlocking efficiency in the supply chain is leveraging technology appropriately to create solutions that remove these barriers by bringing carriers, shippers, and warehouses together so we can move freight in the most efficient, transparent, and automated way. The goal is to find an equilibrium and avoid costly vicious cycles.

DARQ Matters
February 15, 2022
As we explore the large and the small, the universe and its constituent sub-atomic particles, we are also beginning to realize that all is not as it seems to be. The amount of visible matter is only a fraction of the total content of matter. Here’s a sobering fact: The matter we know and that makes up all stars and galaxies only accounts for 5% of the content of the universe! Dark matter seems to outweigh visible matter roughly six to one, making up about 27% of the universe.

In this paper, we will talk about a different type of darkness that needs light to be shed on, a set of emerging technologies that will form the underpinnings for change to be brought about by Industry 5.0.

These will form the essential ingredients for defining the future. For Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO), these emerging technologies will create the foundation for the different types of schemas that we have defined in our computational fabric for cybernetics. These will be the basis for providing actionable intelligence for all our solutions, products and services.

The Hard Problem of Automation
February 11, 2022
Automation is the hard merger of technology, engineering and digital, and the people, processes and platforms needed to enable and manage them. It’s not just about seeing robots in action as they manufacture stuff. Laying out the process right from its inception to smart manufacturing and coordinating it with procurement and supply chain logistics, maintenance, support, and service, and what happens to the product after it leaves the assembly line is a complex problem. Parallel activities of marketing, sales and customer support also needs to be considered with all the safety and certification standards that need to be adhered to both inside the domain of the enterprise and outside.

In a prior article on Hyper Automation, we had laid the basis for enabling connected systems and products using Make, Manage, Move, Market and Maintain. In this 24th article we will pitch our case on solving the hard issue of automation. Herewith we present our perspective on how we plan to build an all-encompassing ecosystem consisting of Digital Threads and Digital Twins to enable the mélange of the physical and digital realms by automating the new and helping create unique smart and connected products and services.

Digital Transformation: The Past
February 09, 2022
Whilst some believe that you should never look back, others content that our past experiences can be a great fuel for our desired futures – to take what we need from the experiences, the mistakes and the memories and then to move forward. I firmly believe in the second opinion. We are products of our past. But we don’t have to be prisoners of it.

Companies need help to transform – this has been a boon for the revenues of consulting companies like McKinsey, Accenture, Deloitte and others to quickly enter into the Digital arena either by acquiring companies or developing capabilities in-house. It has also spawned off several companies that research and help assist CXOs with platforms and tools research so that they have the right understanding of the rapidly changing landscape of Digital enablement.

Digital Transformations: Beginnings
February 03, 2022
Beginnings are hard and challenging. But they can also be exciting and rewarding. In this article I will summarize the genesis (wait not again!) of the internet era. I was then part of what is called high-tech engineering working on designing aerospace and automotive parts using computer simulations, mathematics and analytics to ensure that products can be built by first visualizing them using computer models, were safe and served their purpose prior to prototyping and actual manufacturing. Although we used supercomputers and the like, digital was a far cry from what we did, the goal being to fulfill the design of the product and what it was meant to do.

Digital is a judicious mélange of Art and Technology, and the right blend is needed from both fields to define, design, build, govern and implement the metamorphosis that enterprises undergo in their progression. Digital Transformation is not just about technology – it is the coordinated aggregation of people, process and platform interacting to provide a cohesive whole, wherein strategy, planning, governance, change management, agile delivery and operations needed to be synchronized.
