Reading time ( words)

New and experienced managers will gather at the Managers Forum at IPC APEX EXPO on March 8 to discuss strategies for thriving during times of crisis.

Internationally recognized executives and technologists will offer lessons learned during past disruptions such as transportation interruption, trade restriction, labor shortages, lockdowns, and technology innovation. Attendees will gain insight into how to solve problems with applications that lead to factory of the future implementation, including information on employee upskilling, materials, analytics, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

Industry experts and innovators will lead discussions on a wide range of topics for managing in times of transition, and emerging stronger. Representatives from FTG Corporation, Rogers Corporation, Cirtronics, Atotech Group, American Standards Circuits, Germany Industry 4.0 Campus, Luminovo GmbH, General Dynamics, GreenSource Fabrication & GreenSource Engineering, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Vicor Corporation, Green Circuits, and IPC will provide critical insight on how best to move forward when presented with industry’s toughest challenges.

“Our industry has weathered many tough periods and learned from them every time,” said Tracy Riggan, senior director, business development at IPC. “This past year has yielded more than its share of disruption with the pandemic complicating existing geopolitical tensions, labor shortages and speeding up already increased technology advancement and causing logistics interruption and part shortages. These challenges continue and our early responses inform our success at meeting them now and being better prepared for the next big impact.”

“The purpose of the Managers Forum is to give managers of all experience levels the opportunity to gain new insights and learn firsthand how peers are achieving their goals and strengthening their organizations to ensure growth, especially during periods of uncertainty,” said Gene Weiner, president, Weiner International Associates and IPC Hall of Fame Council Program Chair, responsible for Managers’ Forum programming.

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month.
