Registration is now open for these two three- hour sessions. “We will be offering two dynamic workshops packed with information from leading subject matter experts who will show engineers how to analyze and reduce the cost of a company’s designs and another group of subject matter experts who will discuss why manual assembly re- mains the most popular way to put together a product,” said Sprovieri. “We thank our esteemed speakers as well as our sponsors including A. Raymond Tinnerman, Dorner, Dukane, Atlas Copco and SCHUNK.” On Tuesday, October 27, from 1:00-4:00p.m. EST, Akash Agarwal, Mechanical Engineer for Datum 3D; Mark Burzynski, President, Arthur G. Russell Co; Vikram Bhar- gava, Fellow of the Society of Plastics Engineers; and Bill Devenish, DFMA Expert and Producibility Engineer, The Devenish Group Inc will join Sprovieri to talk about Design

for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA). The workshop is being sponsored by A. Raymond Tinnerman, Dorner and Dukane. DFMA is a methodology for identifying, quantifying, and eliminating waste or inefficiency in a product design with the goal to create a product that is easy and inex- pensive to mass-produce. At least 85 percent of manufac- turing costs are determined in the early stages of design. When engineers make informed design decisions during the concept stage, they can avoid costly corrections later. The manufacturing professionals in the audience will learn how to lower manufacturing costs through good design, discover what features make a product easy and cost effi- cient to assemble, and find out how to design to facilitate automation. On Wednesday, October 28, from 1:00-4:00p.m. EST, Austin Weber, Senior Editor, ASSEMBLY Magazine will moderate Lean Manufacturing and Manual Assembly. The panelists will include Jeffrey Miller, PE, Managing Principal, Productivity Engineering Services LLC, who will talk about Lean Layout Do’s and Don’ts; Art Smalley, Art of Lean Inc. who will present The ABCs of A3 Reports; Timothy A. Pot- torff, CIE, ARM, Principal, QP3 ErgoSystems LLC who will discuss Best Practices for Ergonomics on the Assembly Line; and Ben Marsh, President and CEO, Scout Systems Inc., will talk about IIoT With Manual Assembly. Sponsors of this workshop are Atlas Copco and SCHUNK. Visit for more info.
