The Build4Scale training program is designed to help advanced manufacturing and “hardware” product developers with scaling their business utilizing design for manufacturability disciplines. Companies that would find the most value in this training program are those that have a unique physical product or process, have already developed prototypes or low volume production and need to move to a higher volume scale. • Designing Your Product for X – Manufacturability, Durability and Cost Reductions • Developing a Bill of Materials (BOM) & Bill of Process (BOP) as a method to support quality and reduce components and manufacturing steps • Moving from Alpha to Beta Prototypes to Low Volume to Scale! – Designing for Failure Modes Effects and Analysis • Supplier Partnerships: Choosing the Right Contract Manufacturers AGENDA 9:00 am Program Overview and Participant Introductions 9:20 am Exercise: Designing Your Product for X 9:45 am Exercise: Develop Your Bill of Materials (BOM) 10:15 am Coffee Break 10:30 am Exercise: Develop Your Bill of Process (BOP) 11:15 am Moving from Alpha Prototyping to Beta to Scale 11:45 am Lunch & Exercise: Design for Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) 1:00 pm Facility Tour: Munro & Associates Product Benchmarking & Innovation Center 1:30 pm Mentorship & Coaching: one-on-one with instructors Information on LTU’s new ScaleUp for Success Program designed to help small manufacturers and hardware innovators grow their business will also be highlighted.
