I look forward to reading Adam Savage’s column in the Wired Magazine every month. One, in particular, got my attention. In “Think Inside the Box – There’s no point in having the tools for the job if you can’t find them quickly” he talks about the challenges of not having the right tool, or worse, knowing you have it but not being able to find it. If you’ve ever tried to re-surface that ghastly cabinet in your kitchen before the guests arrive on the weekend or worse, fix a leaking pipe before it floods your bathroom, you know what I mean.
It’s not too different in our work life. Time is of the essence. You need to harness the right solutions quickly – whether it’s to help you dramatically improve manufacturing performance, rapidly design, and engineer and bring innovative products to market, predict and avoid plant interruptions, improve on-time delivery, or efficiently manage price volatility risks of raw materials.
Come to SAPPHIRE NOW Madrid, November 13-15, 2012. You will find all the right tools – all in one place: best-practice sharing with peers; industry experts on-hand to answer your questions; demos; areas where you can test drive solutions; and much more.
Your first stop at SAPPHIRE NOW should be the Industries and Lines of Business Campus, where Discrete Manufacturing and R&D/Engineering topics are located.
It will be 3 days well spent. You will feel like Batman – ready with your utility belt.
