Conference Overview

While a research unit is critical to the success of the organization, efforts dedicated to R&D process improvements can be challenging. High costs and long time scales coupled with difficulties in anticipating changing market and customer needs, put pressure on R&D groups to perform. A holistic and integrated approach to both product development and innovation within R&D process is a strategic imperative. Our meeting facilitates hands-on experience sharing of rapid techniques and lean methodologies to ensure greater R&D efficiency and speed to market.
