How to Avoid Hidden Costs and Delays in the Product Design-to-Commercialization Cycle: Creation Technologies Technical Workshop at PCB West

The workshop, ‘How to Avoid Hidden Costs and Delays in the Product Design-to-Commercialization Cycle’, is designed to give engineers practical tools for delivering innovative new devices to market on time and on budget. Attendees will learn how to decide the right tradeoffs between time and money, define requirements that meet design controls but minimize costs, and mitigate supply chain risk and avoid the hidden costs of designing in the wrong materials.

The workshop takes place from 3pm-5pm PST on Wednesday, September 14th, and is presented by Todd Dierking, Director of Creation Design Services, and Todd Baggett, Executive Vice President of Integrated Services.
