Session Description
James (Jim) Haw, Vice-President of Automation and Digital Strategy at Operations Technology Specialists (OTS), has over 35 years of industrial automation experience. He pioneered the first “born digital” plastics recycling facility and received the 2023 ISA Excellence in Technical Achievement award for this innovation. Jim holds a BSEE from the University of Arkansas and is a registered PE in Texas, with certifications in CMRP and PMP. He is set to discuss “The Complexities of Digital Cognition are not that Complex.”

He will share his insights on the necessity of digital cognition over digital twins, stressing that simplicity and continuous utilization are key. He contends that overly complex programs tend to benefit developers rather than clients. Haw believes that in-house personnel can effectively manage digital strategies with the right, widely available tools. He emphasizes that digital twins don’t need to be intricate, just actively and consistently used. This approach ensures better alignment with client needs and maximizes the potential of internal resources.
