12:00 pm EST / 9:00 am PST
Successful product launches are the foundation of profitable growth, but far too many of them fail. In industries from CPG to High to Tech to Automotive, the challenges are formidable — starting with making the right capital equipment investment decisions, to tooling, packaging, ensuring the supply of key components, field readiness, production issues, ramping to volume, and of course the seemingly inevitable bad forecast. In this webinar, you will find out how the best companies overcome these challenges and mitigate their risks.
Learn how ON Semiconductor makes strategic investment decisions, selecting the optimal amount of production capacity to limit initial exposure, while securing options for capacity expansion to achieve just-in-time capacity adjustments as demand becomes better understood. Hear how Ford is applying analytics to reduce risk and add flexibility. As always with ChainLink webinars, no vendor pitch — nothing but the distilled experience and lessons of market leaders. If you are faced with the challenge of successfully managing capital-intensive product launches, this is a must-attend webinar you won’t want to miss!
