WNIE-TV at APEX 2018 – Roundtable Schedule Announced

WNIE TV will once again be up close and personal with the industry’s thought-leaders and opinion-shapers who will be debating key topics at this year’s IPC APEX show, taking place in San Diego from 27 February to 1 March 2018 – as always filmed on-site in the WNIE-TV Studio on booth #2614.

Our current round-table sessions will discuss the following topics:

Contract Manufacturing: The Dawn of Opportunities

With both OEMs and EMSs seeing their margins heavily affected by rising hardware commoditization, how are companies adjusting to the shift to remain competitive? Do EMS companies need to broaden their range of services for example to give OEMs the opportunity more options to outsource design, development, and manufacturing services? The panel will discuss what trade-offs are involved in such a strategic change.

Industry focus: Automotive – Record-breaking 0-100 for Electronics Manufacturing

The rapid rise of automotive electronics is driven by factors such as lightweight, miniaturization, intelligence and electrification. How does the manufacturing industry need to adapt services, processes and strategies to keep up with the speed and is Innovation the key to staying ahead in the race to succeed?

What’s New in Electronics? Trends & Emerging Technologies

Electronics manufacturing is continuing to push through the fourth industrial revolution and it has become less of an addition and more of a necessity for businesses to ride the Industry 4.0 wave. In this debate, panellists will delve into exploring some of the advanced and emerging trends that will be impacting our industry including digitization & security, collaborative robotics and 3D printing.

Manufacturing in Focus: the US

Is manufacturing in the USA on the up again? For sure US-manufacturing is being transformed and disrupted by the same forces transforming the rest of our industry: the evolution of digital technology, globalized supply chains and partnerships and an accelerating need for organizational speed and agility. Some of the key areas of discussion will touch on how globalisation is helping the domestic job market, whether we are witnessing a reverse in an offshoring trend to near shoring and whether automation is a threat or driver of domestic success?

Where Do We Stand with Standards?

The Standards race is well on its way. What progress is being made in the area of standards and how standards will bring the tactical level of Industry 4.0/IIoT implementation in line with the conceptual level will be the subject of this debate.

Industry 4.0/IIoT – Full-Circle from Design Through Manufacture and Back Again!

Industry 4.0 or IIoT requires digital modelling from design through manufacture and then full circle back from manufacturing to design. This roundtable will look at latest developments, challenges and available solutions.
