Prevent Erosion of Your Automotive Market Position Amidst Tight Financial Conditions



Tight money and severe liability requirements make competition tough for OEMs and their EMS and ODM counterparts in the burgeoning market of automotive pcb and electronic design. Manufacturers with the technological infrastructure to create low-cost, integrated traceability solutions and lean process controls will succeed, while those with heavy overhead burdens and sluggish enterprise resources will retreat or fail.

This webinar defines what it takes to win in this lucrative 'do-or-die' market. Don't lose out on the exploding market for automotive electronics just because your traceability management is too weak, too slow, or too expensive. Wise technology choices make it easy and affordable to comply with liability requirements. This webinar will show you several areas where technology can create new and unexpected competitive advantages for your company.

What You Will Learn

  • How to best use agile manufacturing and traceability analysis to maintain cost effectiveness
  • How to achieve state-of-the-art conformance and traceability
  • How to effectively differentiate from the competition
