webinar description

Directworks and Kalypso are joining forces to discuss how discrete manufacturers with complex product requirements can more effectively engage their supply base earlier in the New Product Development (NPD) cycle by using best practice techniques and advanced digital collaboration solutions. Attendees will learn how authentic, digitally enabled supplier collaboration introduces powerful new possibilities in the NPD process by:

Seamlessly engaging suppliers earlier in product design and sourcing discussions to access their deep domain knowledge and experience
Executing efficient and rapid design and costing cycles with very targeted objectives
Enhancing visibility and management of critical activities within a connected community
Elevating the supply chain focus from pure financial benefit to enhancing the customer value experience, ensuring greater product success

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Engage suppliers earlier in product design and sourcing discussions to access their deep domain knowledge and experience

  • Execute efficient and rapid design and costing cycles with very targeted objectives
