Product Development and the Supply ChainBackground

Efficient and well-designed supply chains are integral in the race to get new, customized products to market faster. Companies with virtual supply chains significantly outpace most vertically integrated companies with their ability to substantially cut costs and respond to changing markets and products with speed and agility. By the same token, well-designed products are critical to supply chain effectiveness.

Industry leaders are discovering that collaborative product design is increasingly more attainable with the arrival of web-enabled collaboration tools. You will hear keynote speaker, Corey Billington of Hewlett-Packard and Michael Pizinger from DELL Computer describe the benefits of their respective supply chain technology advancements and the impact on market value.

Developing flexible and value-added supplier partnerships is a key ingredient for achieving successful collaborative product design and rapid cost effective new product launch capability. Hear industry practitioners provide hands-on explanations of successful implementation processes for increasing and fostering communication/collaboration amongst engineering and purchasing. The paybacks gained by companies investing wisely in lean supplier training combined with early supplier integration will become vividly apparent.
