According to Fictiv’s 2019 State of Hardware Survey, product developers are seeing new challenges exacerbating inefficiencies in manufacturing and supply chains. To compensate, product development teams are leveraging new technologies and tariff engineering strategies to circumvent obstacles and create a more agile supply chain.
In a panel hosted by Fictiv Director of Business Development Mike Geyer, we will have a spirited(!) interactive conversation with expert product developers and manufacturing engineers to discuss practical strategies on keeping projects on track in the face of new challenges and how to design agility into supply chains. All attendees will receive a special limited edition booklet of Fictiv’s 2019 State of Hardware Report.
