June 30 - Day 3: The Impact of Material Choices on the Core Business of Manufacturing
Focus on Fundamentals 
6/30/2016  44 comments
Material choices also help determine ideal manufacturing processes and sequences. In a bigger picture, they can also spell success or failure of mission-critical processes like lean, quality validation and certification. We will take a detailed look at how material choices can affect your development and manufacturing processes overall, with special attention paid to various aspects of typical development and manufacturing processes in automotive, medical, aerospace, and electronics industries.
