Dave Cote on Honeywell and the Digital Revolution
February 07, 2017
“Manufacturing of things is always going to be important…no matter what you deal with in your life, you’re dealing with physical objects of some kind.” While manufacturing will remain important for growth and productivity, he emphasized that “the next wave of productivity is going to be coming from the interaction between the digital space and the physical space.”
Honeywell is particularly focused on leveraging its understanding of how the digital and the physical connect to create a better physical output for its customers. Cote noted that half of the company’s 23,000 engineers are developing software, “because that interaction between the digital and physical space is going to be hugely important in this century. It’s the next phase of the digital revolution.”
