Expanding the series of Audio Product Education Institute webinars focusing on Supply Chain & Sourcing, this new event jumps directly to the factory floor and focuses on the very specific production line challenges. In this new online event, our two supply chain and sourcing experts, David Lindberg(DB Enterprises) and Mike Klasco (Menlo Scientific) have invited two companies who play a key role in that space. Anna-Katrina Shedletsky, the co-founder of Instrumental will explain how her company helps dealing with complex production line challenges when building products. And Daniel Knighten, General Manager, and Eric Hodges, Director of Marketing and Sales Operations for Audio Precision, will explain how a new integrated audio test system helps with quality assessments, reducing setup and reconfiguration time.

The Audio Product Education Institute‘s Supply Chain & Sourcing pillar is committed to provide a full understanding of the full product cycle, from vision to market. And detecting and solving problems and inefficiencies in the factory floor is key to consistently successful product strategies. Launching new products is being challenged by compressed timelines, and dramatically increasing engineering complexity. 20% of every dollar spent in manufacturing alone is wasted on things like scrap, rework, product returns, mistakes, experiments, and underutilized human resources. This webinarwill offer two valuable perspectives from executives with extensive experience in this field, while exploring cutting-edge products and solutions for the production line.
