Optimal Electronics to Present Technical Seminar at APEX 2008

Mar 20, 2008

Optimal Electronics Corporation, a global provider of innovative software solutions for the control and optimization of electronics assembly, announces that it will present during the upcoming APEX 2008 trade show and exhibition. This case study on "Lean Kitting" will be presented under the heading of Business II: Optimizing Your Return. APEX is scheduled to take place April 1-3, 2008 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center, Las Vegas.

Optimal Electronics presentation, session #S06, will take place on Tuesday, April 1st, 2008 at 3.15 p.m. This paper will be presented by Dr. Ranko Vujosevic, the Founder, President, and CTO of Optimal Electronics. It discusses kitting and how lean thoughts of the past would consider it a waste to be eliminated. A key finding is that eliminating kitting as a waste in electronic assembly may create waste in the area that does much more damage to the company's bottom line assembly line throughput and process quality. The paper describes ways to eliminate waste in different phases of kitting, and illustrates Lean Kitting using a case study conducted in a major contract manufacturer site.

Moderated by Charles Wade of Technology Forecasters, the Technical Conference sessions are designed to provide an opportunity to learn the steps a company will need to take in order to maximize profitability in today's highly competitive business environment. The challenging conference sessions will ask if a company understands their best choices at every stage of the product realization process and if they can pinpoint where opportunities and pitfalls lie. Following the theme of Business, the targeted sessions will focus on maximizing profits in an ever evolving market.

Optimal Electronics will also exhibit at APEX 2008 in booth 2147, where representatives will be available to discuss and demonstrate the company's products and technologies.
