@waltboyes Live Tweets from Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition Oct. Meeting

I've been part of the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition since 2010. The SMLC is working to define an overarching operating system for manufacturing. I bet you are asking why we need to do that, and why can't we just use what we've got. Well, the answer ins't that simple.

In early October, I attented one of their meetings and during the course of it I was tweeting live.

Read what was covered in the meeting from my tweets below.
