The future is not in big data, but rather smart data.

Stéphane Klajzyngier

If I had Carte Blanche, I would like to invent a revolutionary product. The one thing that everyone is waiting for, without really being able to put it into words…

A podcast episode about the industry of the future

2020: a springboard year for the industry of the future

2020 marks the end of our first strategic plan, in which transformation towards Smart Industry was the guiding principle. At the same time, it also marks the starting point for our next plan, where the industry of the future will become the norm.

The 3 pillars of the industry of the future are automation, digitalisation and respect for the environment. I hope that this will allow us to bring production interests back, so that they are as close as possible to consumers, meaning in France, Germany and not just low-cost countries.


A unique product, at the cost of mass production; is this utopia?

For Stéphane Klajzyngier, consumers are increasingly looking for THE unique product, meaning the one that best suits their needs. The question is how to make a unique product, but at the cost of mass production.

It’s like zero inventory, zero paper, zero lead time, it’s a sort of utopia. But, just like any utopia, it’s interesting, because it shows us the path we need to take. We need great flexibility, capacity for product customisation, and proximity to production.


Appropriate data selection

With the rise of the IoT, we play an increasingly advisory role, making our customers’ products smarter, particularly in terms of the electronic design.

One of our activities, as an manufacturer, is also to only report useful data. Indeed, it is essential to take into account the impact of data use, both on global electricity consumption, and on climate change concerns.

Stéphane Klajzyngier: a short profile

In the 90s, he first joined the world of electronics, and then the mobile industry. He worked at Alcatel during its deployment in Asia, and he was the chairman at Radio Frequency Systems. In 2015, he became Executive Managing Director of the Electronics activity of LACROIX.
