-- 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
