The SMTA announced that the Contract Manufacturing Symposium will be held on October 18, 2011 as a focused symposium at SMTA International in Ft. Worth, TX.  The symposium, aimed at OEMs, and EMS program managers and executives, looks at risk mitigation strategies from Asia to Eastern Europe, and selected SMT processing solutions that could benefit those companies grappling with RoHS and other environmental or leading-edge (high BGA pin count) technical issues.

Chaired by Susan Mucha, Powell-Mucha Consulting, Inc., presentation topics include Eastern European EMS Site Location Options, Technical Trends in Networking from a Manufacturing Perspective, Driving Improvements in Quality, Delivery and Cost in High Mix, Low Volume Manufacturing Operations, and Vapor Phase Technology Supports EMS RoHS Challenges.  Presenters are from Kimball Electronics Group, Tailyn Communication Company, Ltd., Fabrinet, and IBL Technologies, LLC.  The symposium will close with a panel discussion on Building an EMS Cost Model.
