Mr. Terry Wohlers

A 21st Century Product Development Paradigm

Abstract

Many of the technologies we use to communicate weren’t around just a few years ago. And much more is around the corner. Customers are now directly involved in product design. Assemblies that before consisted of 15-20 parts now can be done in one piece and manufactured in a couple days. This eliminates part numbers, inventory, entire assembly lines, labor and maintenance. And, it comes with complete design freedom (complexity for free), as opposed to the design-for-manufacturing constraints of the past. I’m thrilled to be able to speak to this eclectic gathering of movers and shakers in engineering and IT in global manufacturing. It’s exciting to share perspective on some of the new ideas and processes that I believe will shape the way we work together.
