    • Expert Services Panel – Many aPriori customers are embracing a strategy of forming an integrated, long term partnership with aPriori.

  • Future Product Strategy and Roadmap - 2017 will be a year of big announcements and major new product introductions from aPriori.  PCM as a cost culture strategy and the underlying technology platform to support that strategy are accelerating at a rapid pace.  aPriori is leading the way in the development of geometry-driven cost models for new manufacturing processes, infrastructure advancements that allow deployment of PCM on a global basis and advancements in UX technology.
     
  • Productivity Improvement Workshops - aPriori conferences are highly concentrated on delivering practical training to attendees that they can immediately put into action to improve their overall deployment.  As in the past, tracks will be organized by Roles & Responsibilities, with programming dedicated for Designers/Engineers, Sourcing/Cost Engineers and Deployment Leaders.
     
  • Pre-Conference Training – In 2016, aPriori introduced an option for new users of the product, or for people considering embarking on a PCM initiative, to take a full day, instructor-led class on the basics of product cost management.  This class was so successful that the program will be repeated, and we will be expanding the program to include topics that cover multiple use cases.  Laptops that are pre-loaded with aPriori will be provided, and this will be a hands-on workshop where participants can get firsthand experience of how an advanced costing solution like aPriori would work on a day-to-day basis.

Who Should Attend?

Due to high demand, this year’s conference registration is expanding beyond the current aPriori customer base, and is being opened up to the public.  The event is appropriate for Engineering and Sourcing Executives that want to learn new strategies from their peers on how to drive greater profitability from new product development programs.  It is also a great event for Directors and Managers that have been tasked with implementing a more progressive cost aware culture within their company.  For more information, we invite you to visit our dedicated COST INSIGHT 2017 event page where you can learn more about the complete program, and register for the event.
