Manufacturing Integration in New Product Introduction

Realizing Earlier Returns and Revenues by Refining Cross-Functional Integration in the Manufacturing Process

4-5 Dec 2012
Wyndham Riverfront New Orleans - New Orleans, LA, United States of America

Why You Should Attend

Manufacturing Integration in New Product Introduction

According to research, 70% of resources spent on new product launches are lost. Successfully carrying a product to market involves a number of challenging and complex tasks, each critically linked to the one preceding it. All too often, these efforts fall far short of expectations or fail altogether because one or more tasks do not receive the necessary level of attention. Effective cross-functional teamwork is a major contributor to new product success and manufacturing executives view innovation in internal processes linked to the integration of manufacturing with the product pipeline as the key to long term success.

The Manufacturing Integration in New Product Introduction Conference will highlight the next stage in innovation by bringing senior executives in Manufacturing Operations and Product Realization together to uncover leading-edge collaborative processes to carry products to market. Attending will provide insights for shrinking time to market in order to achieve earlier returns and revenues by identifying streamlined, customer-driven manufacturing processes that incorporate comprehensive, cross-functional communications in the ultimate merger between Design and Manufacturing.

Attendees will benefit from a dynamic peer-to-peer presentation format consisting of workshops, interactive panel discussions and case studies. Each network and interactive session will be followed by 10-15 minutes of Q&A affording all in attendance an opportunity to get the answers to questions affecting their business. Moreover, 4+ hours of networking opportunities will supply attendees with benchmarking and best practices sharing amongst their peers.

1. Build a framework for successful manufacturing integration for new product introduction
2. Align manufacturing integration and processes with the corporate culture
3. Incorporate forward-thinking strategies in manufacturing integration
4. Develop the tools that shrink time-to-market, reduce costs and promote earlier returns and revenues
