The Future of Manufacturing is Digital

2020 has been an extremely difficult year for global manufacturers and all the thousands of suppliers, partners and vendors that work with these companies. Articles about lost revenue, layoffs and furloughs, and delayed product launches have dominated the headlines since early March.

At Cost Insight 2020, the goal is to put all of this in the rearview mirror and look towards the future.  And the future of manufacturing is digital.  Companies that continue to do business in traditional ways and resist digital transformation will be relegated to history as new, upstart competitors embrace strategies such as model-based definition, digital factories, automated manufacturability simulation, and web-based applications that facilitate collaboration for product teams distributed across the globe.

This year’s Cost Insight conference will focus on how aPriori customers are recovering, re-building and re-inventing their product development processes to ensure that going forward their companies are better able to withstand unplanned shocks to the global economy.

Here are some of the highlights of this year’s conference that attendees can expect when they register and attend:

Who Should Attend?

Product Designers & Engineers

If you have anything to do with designing or engineering a discrete manufactured product and want to learn how to use cost and DFM data to optimize designs and avoid errors that increase manufacturing cost and result in mind numbing ECOs.

Sourcing, Buyers, Supply Chain

If you have anything to do with sourcing or buying engineered components or assemblies that become part of your finished product and you’re struggling to find new ways to collaborate on should cost with your supply chain partners.

Design & Sourcing Team Management

If you are managing a team that is responsible for product design or sourcing, and you are being asked by your senior executives to report on the forecast cost of the product throughout the design cycle

Cost Estimating Professionals

If you’re a professional cost estimator working in either a big OEM or a mid-size supplier, and you simply can’t keep up with the volume of costing requests.
