ReVista — Ressourcen- und verfügbarkeitsorientierte Instandhaltungsstrategien
WZL
March 03, 2013
In den meisten Unternehmen sind die realen Energie- und Stoffströme sowie deren Zuordnung zu den Verursachern nicht bekannt. Das Projekt ReVista widmet sich deshalb der Entwicklung einer ganzheitlichen, ressourcen- und verfügbarkeitsorientierten Instandhaltungsstrategie, die eine material- und energieeffiziente Produktion ermöglicht und eine bedarfsgerechte Verfügbarkeit im Betrieb sicherstellt. Dazu wird ein Expertensystem („lernende Sensorik“) zur Analyse des Abnutzungsverhaltens in Abhängigkeit der Prozessparameter entwickelt. Dieses System soll Prognosen zur Ausfallwahrscheinlichkeit verbessern und somit die Nutzungsdauer der Bauteile verlängern. Weiterhin wird der Ressourcenverbrauch der Anlagen und ihrer Nebenaggregate in Abhängigkeit des Werkzeugverschleißes und der Prozessparameter untersucht und in einer „Betriebspunktdatenbank“ zusammengeführt. So können die Energiebedarfe prognostiziert und energieeffiziente Betriebspunkte eingestellt werden. Das Softwareinstrument „ReVista-Cockpit“ verarbeitet diese Informationen, so dass die Instandhaltungsstrategie und deren Abstimmung mit der Produktion bewertbar werden. Die Methode zur ressourcenschonenden und verfügbarkeitsorientierten Produktions- und Instandhaltungsplanung ist ein weiteres wichtiges Projektergebnis. Die ReVista-Tools können in allen produzierenden Unternehmen zum Einsatz kommen.

TECHNOLOGY NEUTRALITY
Johannes Drooghaag
December 06, 2018
As follow up to SDG's and the Ethics of Technology, I ran a poll on Twitter to understand how my Social Media network thinks about the responsibility for the usage of technology. These are the results of that poll.

There are some interesting observations to be made from these results. Although there is no real majority for either of the options, the collective majority does believe that the creators and users of technology at least own the responsibility over the usage, either joined or individually. It is also interesting to see that the minority feels that governments and regulators carry this responsibility.

DISRUPTING BLOCKCHAIN
Johannes Drooghaag
November 30, 2018
In a lively discussion about blockchain and disruption, once again the question was raised “what will disrupt blockchain?”, and the answer to that question is as simple as it is straightforward. Blockchain itself will disrupt blockchain.

As carrier for disruption of many industries and applications, blockchain has become a catalyst for change and transformation. Although not yet in full scale implementation besides some successful crypto-currencies, the potential is clearly identified. Unleashing that potential into real-life and large-scale applications of blockchain based platforms will quickly turn the power of disruption on blockchain itself.

The prime USP’s of blockchain based technology are decentralization and encryption, creating a trustless environment with security-by-design. As soon as we take a closer look under the hood of this “new” technology, we quickly identify that there isn’t that much new technology involved. Analyzing the concept of decentralization beyond the label, it is true that there isn’t a central trust- or owner-body for the data involved but there are other levels of centralized control which make it significantly less decentralized as it appears. And then there is the matter of resources required to build and operate a blockchain based platform, especially when the scale goes beyond the miniature implementations we have seen so far!

Those are however all problems and challenges “underneath the hood” of the concept, and the evolution of blockchain and its technology will eventually solve these challenges. Nonetheless there is a much bigger challenge to be addressed, and experts recognize that there might not be a short term solution: legislation and compliance.

SDG’S AND THE ETHICS OF TECHNOLOGY
Johannes Drooghaag
September 28, 2018
In the series Star Trek: Voyager we find that the character Seven of Nine is a former Borg drone, who becomes disconnected from the Borg Collective, and faces the challenges of becoming a human individual again while still depending on Borg cybernetic implants. An important part of her survival and ability to deal with these foreign implants are the nanorobots that maintain them, along with other lifesaving functions.

Later on in the series, Seven of Nine learns to reprogram the nanorobots for specific functions, which in some instances, save the lives of other individuals. With her growing control over the nanorobots, Seven of Nine also learns to manipulate the process of replicating the nanorobots, allowing her to produce armies of designated nanorobots almost at will.

OPEN LETTER TO MR. KASPERSKY
Johannes Drooghaag
July 23, 2018
It is rare that a company and their products remain associated in a positive manner with its founder and Executive over many years. Once there was Peter Norton and his Norton Utilities but that glory passed by over time. Mr. Torvalds was once Mr. Linux and Linux was Linus Torvalds, and although he still is a leading voice in the industry, most of the current users don’t know who he is, so that recognition faded as well. Bill Gates was the front man of Microsoft for a long time and became more associates with the issues than with the successes.

A lasting positive association between company and person is of course Steve Jobs, who is forever associated with Apple as much as Apple will always be associated with Steve Jobs. And the same applies of course to Steve “The WOZ” Wozniak. There are of course more examples of very positive associations between founder and company but there are not that many. You belong to that very rare circle and anyone who looks at the history will acknowledge that it was hard work for you and your team. You and your company, your products, and your services are associated with each other for more than 2 decades now. In the community, you are for 20+ years the personification of fighting cyber crime.

Three decades ago, we had an ingenious solution to protect computer systems. Passwords were no longer needed, and that wasn’t even the most brilliant part of our solution. This ingenious solution would even eliminate the need to enter an user ID! Yes, we were brilliant and our solution was going to revolutionize the world forever! We found the golden egg, that huge pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Parents were going to name their children after us. Nobel prize acceptance speeches had to be prepared. Fame and glory was coming our way!

THE INTERNET OF KIDS
Johannes Drooghaag
June 09, 2018
After several years of explaining adults how to protect themselves when using the internet, I found myself searching for words to explain my own child the do’s and don’ts of internet safety. During our conversation I realized that my perspective and usage of internet basically has nothing in common with how children use the internet.

There are some interesting lessons when looking at computers, internet and other technology from the perspective of kids. A computer is just a window to another world, with games and videos. Internet is when Wi-Fi is enabled. Using a smartphone to call someone is strange, parents do that. Why wait for something when you can do so much on-demand, where and when you want it? Why would anyone want to read and write emails when there are so many other cool apps to chat?

BEING PASSIONATE ABOUT #CYBERSECURITY!
Johannes Drooghaag
May 17, 2018
“Why are you so passionate about raising Cybersecurity awareness?” is a question I have been asked many times in the past years. Even while discussing a project proposal for something entirely different last week, the potential customer asked me this question. In most cases I decide to give a provocative question as reply just for the sake of trying to initiate a discussion. “Why aren’t you?”. On a good day, someone will reply that this is a good question and the discussion kicks in. On a bad day, someone will reply that the IT-Department is responsible for that…

In short, I have 3 reasons to be very passionate about Cybersecurity, awareness and education and these are not in order of priority:

In the past decades, I myself became the victim of various cybercrimes.
The false sense of security and lack of taking responsibility, users and suppliers alike, is a matter of mindset, not technology.
Kids should be able to use internet safe and should neither make the mistakes I made, nor should they suffer under not understanding.

CYBERSECURITY – USER AWARENESS AND EDUCATION IS CRITICAL
Johannes Drooghaag
May 03, 2018
Most companies have implemented some level of Cybersecurity, which in many cases focuses mainly on technology and restrictions. Educating users and even customers on Cybersecurity and related risks remains undervalued when it comes to creating and implementing a Cybersecurity policy. Education in the field of Cybersecurity is not so much about the technical ins-and-outs of technology. Education in Cybersecurity should mainly focus on explaining WHY Cybersecurity is so important and WHY each and every user can make a significant difference, good or bad!

Ask security professionals about the effectiveness of security awareness training, and you’re bound to get a wide range of answers. But regardless of the state of your company’s training program, keeping your employees educated about cybersecurity is an absolute must given the volatility and sophistication of today’s threat landscape

INDUSTRY 4.0 – BUILDING SMART DIGITAL BRIDGES
Johannes Drooghaag
April 29, 2018
Modern production facilities are loaded with sensors, systems and smart controls, all providing tons of data on the process and results. The spread of Plant Floor Data Collection (PFDC), Process Condition Monitoring (PCM) and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) in modern manufacturing facilities keeps growing and with that, digitizing Manufacturing Processes continues to spread just as fast as it does in our society. As soon as more data becomes available, companies are faced with the common challenges, which unfortunately are not always reflected when designing the solutions. How can we benefit from the available data? How can we benefit from combining data? In other words, how can data be transformed into information.

INDUSTRY 4.0 – NOW WHAT?
Johannes Drooghaag
April 26, 2018
With the introduction of Industry 4.0 by the German Government and the designated workgroup, a roadmap was created to introduce Artificial Intelligence, Smart Controls, Smart Automation and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in combination with Big Data into the manufacturing industries in Germany and beyond. The roadmap for Industry 4.0 focuses on introducing information and communication technology to combine the growing demand for individualized production and the benefits of the growing digitization of society and industry. In combination with the LEAN principle of flexibility over complexity, Industry 4.0 lays the foundation for flexible smart factories.

In reality, there is however a lot of manufacturing equipment out there that barely made it through the previous industrial revolution. Big and inflexible, build for mass production and still going strong, despite not being from this modern industrial age. Even companies that own hyper modern facilities, in many cases also own and operate equipment that was installed decades ago, and given the investments made in the past and the investments needed to replace them, have no intention of shutting these facilities down in the near future. With the gap between modern Industry 4.0 and aging Industry 2.0/3.0 equipment growing annually, many facilities operating aged equipment consider the benefits of modernization and Industry 4.0 as unrealistic. Or as one Plant Manager told me recently “These machines were build before you and I were born in a country that no longer exists, and still run stable without robots and internet. How could I improve anything with modern technology when all they have is panel with ON/OFF switches?”.

MIND OVER MATTER – THE CHALLENGES OF LEADING THE TRANSITION IN LEAN, AGILE, DESIGN THINKING
Johannes Drooghaag
March 06, 2018
A recent survey of 28 executives and leading managers shows that many organizations which have set out to benefit from the autonomous delivery and execution methods, like LEAN CI/PDCA, Agile and Design Thinking, are still struggling with creating the proper environment and culture, especially in the area of empowerment, but also in true implementation and execution of the principles which make these methods what they are: rapid go-to-market solutions based on autonomous exploring of opportunities and the most efficient execution. Proven small steps over designed complete packages. Efficient flexible work cells over rigid complex production lines. Many tested prototypes over a single tested end-product.

Organizations struggle at various levels with creating the right culture to let go of the classical models and systems, and that struggle in most cases starts at the top. There are still organizations with LEAN managers at local plant level, which continue to determine the LEAN projects and structures at centralized corporate level, instead of allowing the Small Group Activities and CI/PDCA process to maximize the benefits of the plants for the plants. There are organizations with Agile declarations which still have top-down roadmaps set at executive level with fixed scope and timeline, without enabling the responsible teams to explore benefits and best implementation. There even are organizations which proudly use Design Thinking in their internal and external communication, without even putting a single prototype out there.

MIND OVER MATTER – THE EMOTIONAL COMPETENCE OF TRANSITION TOWARDS AGILE BUSINESS MODELS AND AUTONOMOUS IMPLEMENTATION
Johannes Drooghaag
February 27, 2018
A major challenge when transitioning from the classical controlled project execution models to autonomous project execution like Agile, LEAN PDCA or Design Thinking, is to develop and maintain the proper mindset towards boundaries. The strength of these autonomous methods is the ability to provide rapid go-to-market results combined with continuous improvements based on findings and facts. The challenge during exploring the best business benefits is to objectively identify the real must-have and nice-to-have features and options, especially when the organization is undergoing the transition towards an agile business model.

In the classical controlled delivery and execution models, requirements are given and the main objective is to fulfill these requirements. Managing such project is mainly focused on timelines, budgets and delivery. The road towards completion might change slightly but the requirements are rigid. In an autonomous agile business model, the team is not working against rigid requirements and needs to explore the path towards optimal business benefits. This does however not mean that there are no boundaries to respect and explore.

AUTONOMOUS PROJECT EXECUTION – DEVELOP THE CULTURE TO DELIVER
Johannes Drooghaag
February 21, 2018
Companies large and small have discovered the benefits of autonomous project execution in combination with short go-to-market cycles as seen in Design Thinking, Scrum & Agile and the LEAN continuous improvement concept of PDCA. Dynamic teams of experts and developers are assigned objectives and within the scope of the project, they will explore and deliver the optimal solutions. Decisions are made by the team based on facts and findings, and the unknown is tested as early as possible. By breaking down the larger objectives in smaller stages, results can be battle-tested in the field much quicker and improvements find their way into operations long before the final products and processes are launched.

The involvement of experts, technicians and developers, but also for example sales specialists and marketing experts throughout the delivery cycles, require availability and involvement of these resources for the team, without which the project would be doomed to fail. The involvement of these resources provide such significant benefits that every organization should make sure that they are available. The continuous exchange and review of information and findings between the members of the team eliminate the dreaded “but that is not what the customer wanted” and the even worse “but that is what the specification says”. This involvement throughout the process also leads to natural knowledge transfer within the team and organization.

OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT – THE HIDDEN MACHINE IN COMMUNICATION AND COOPERATION
Johannes Drooghaag
August 29, 2015
There is a secret code to get the full attention of everyone in the areas of Production, LEAN, OPEX and even the Finance Department: “The Hidden Machine”. With the term Hidden Machine, we describe improvements in efficiency and effectiveness by which we can produce more with the same equipment and manpower. More output as if we had installed additional machines, hence the name Hidden Machine. Our efforts focus at first mainly on technical and logistical improvements, further along the path we modify for example production lines into flexible work-centers or optimize tact and capacity between processes. The many success stories from all the production facilities I visited all over the globe over the years are truly impressive and motivate to keep looking for the next Hidden Machine.

There is however a Hidden Machine which we are not paying enough attention to: the Hidden Machine in improving Communication & Cooperation (C&C). C&C between departments, between Managers, shifts, even operators, the entire organization. In short, inefficiency in Communication & Cooperation can, and in most cases does, cost us more than just a Hidden Machine. During my coaching and training sessions, I use the following practical example from my own experience to show the full impact and potential.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Johannes Drooghaag
January 23, 2013
A practical example I use in our Master Classes “Change Management”:

When asked by the Steering Committee to lead a project which had already accumulated 1 year delay and was 42% over it’s original budget of 5 million EURO, my first action was to understand what caused this project to go so far off track. 5-why on a large scale.

The repeating message from various sources was very clear: “Operations and especially the Operations Manager, is sabotaging the project. Not cooperating, not willing to accept the new project and making unrealistic demands and claims.”. The Director Technology added a very interesting detail: “10 years ago, when we installed the current systems, the same man was opposing that system and now he doesn’t want to replace it”. This might be someone simply opposing change, so this was the man to speak with, learn his motives and find an opening to move forward.

° Executive ° Consultant ° Author ° Coach ° Speaker ° Social Media Strategist ° Brand and Product Ambassador °

My name is Johannes Drooghaag, but most people call me JD. I specialize in the organizational aspects of transition and change, by combining the Human Factor with the opportunities of technology. With almost 30 years of Executive experience combined with Military Leadership, and promotions in Applied Information Technology, Manufacturing, and Operations Management, I still learn every single day from the people I interact with.

From Emotional Competence Coach, to Agile Business Coach, from Change Leadership Champion to LEAN Manufacturing, and more, I have the experience to be able to filter the noise from the music. Together we will find the optimal mix that works for your organization, and I am already looking forward to learning from you at least as much as you will learn from me. In all those years of experience, I have made plenty of mistakes and learned more from those than from any formal education. I will share my mishaps and the lessons they taught me. Are you willing to share what you learned?

I am a people-person, and that is what I focus on. The right and the wrong we do is determined by our mindset and our attitude. We will never gain any benefit from technology and transformation when we approach it with the wrong mindset and attitude. Growing the right mindset to face the challenges ahead is what matters. You and your team have the potential within yourselves, and I will help you reach that potential to the fullest.

I love what I do, and so will you.

CYBERSECURITYTALKS – PART 5
NTT Security
February 01, 2019
Traditional Security awareness seems to be a kind of burden and necessary evil. Online trainings were designed and rolled out but do not deliver expected changes in behavior. What should we do different? Or what works from your point of view? Incident Response plans are still quite weak and often not really tested in a real life scenario. How do you see IRP and handling?

CYBERSECURITYTALKS – PART 4
NTT Security
January 31, 2019
Quite often I’m irritated by the AI hype for SOC services and the many tools claiming that they deliver best machine learning engines. From my point of view the AI tools are only part of a SOC strategy and AI is not the holy grail for Cybersecurity. As we say for years, AI needs learning and good data as a foundation for the intelligence. Does it really work? Do we need no people anymore? What is your experience with incident handling?

MINDFIT FOR CYBERSECURITY, BUSINESSES EPISODE 3
Johannes Drooghaag
September 09, 2019
Hello and welcome to Is your mind fit for cybersecurity? with Johannes Drooghaag, my very good friend I call JD because it’s a lot easier and myself Neville Gaunt. Now if you were listening at the end of the session 2, you will have already downloaded Back to the Future for Cybersecurity from JD’s website. If you haven’t, what we go to into here will be additional but actually going back to that crib sheet as I call it, will be absolutely fundamental to you cracking this nut what we call cybersecurity. But here we go JD. Zou and I have known each other for a couple of years now and we’ve talked about this Mind Fit for Cybersecurity for a little while. You like the MindFit approach, I like your approach to cybersecurity but come on, spill the beans what do you mean by MindFit for Cybersecurity.

IS YOUR MIND FIT FOR CYBER SECURITY? BUSINESS, EPISODE 2
Johannes Drooghaag
September 02, 2019
Hello and welcome to our second session of “Is your mind fit for cybersecurity?” and a business flavor with my good friend Johannes Drooghaag, JD for short, and myself Neville Gaunt. We will launch straight into this element here about the future of cyber security because we speak about the challenges of cybersecurity for existing infrastructure, but so can you highlight where companies get it wrong. So I’m very much of a new business type of guy, I like the gadgets and gimmicks so I’m always out there getting after the new stuff, and have a tendency I must say of forgetting where we’ve come from. Is that the similar issue within the business context?

IS YOUR MIND FIT FOR CYBER SECURITY? BUSINESSES, EPISODE 1
Johannes Drooghaag
August 28, 2019
Hello welcome back to “Are you mind fit for cybersecurity?” with Johannes Drooghaag, or JD for short because it’s a lot easier, and Neville Gaunt. In this particular session we’re going to be covering the business angle. You know one of the biggest problems in businesses is that they get hung up with this word cybersecurity and it freezes the business. And more importantly it tends to be pushed into the IT department. “It’s your problem it’s not mine”. So, JD why do you believe cybersecurity is a leadership challenge and much less a matter of having the right technology? So that to me seems to be where we really need to start this conversation.
