Your Blueprint for Product Profitability

At Cost Insight 2019, join attendees from leading product manufacturers around the world who will share their blueprint for success on how they implemented aPriori to instill a culture of cost awareness and Design for eXcellence (DFX) across their entire product organization – from concept design all the way through to final assembly.

Case studies already confirmed for this year’s event include speakers from the Boeing Company, the Kenworth Truck Company, and AGCO Corporation, who will talk about deployment strategies, results to date, and lessons learned along their journey to improved profitability.
