CHARLOTTE, NCCamstar Systems has launched a global manufacturing workshop and plant tour series to demonstrate productivity through MES tools.

Manufacturing leaders will meet at locations throughout the world to benchmark with others in leveraging state-of-the-art technology to improve manufacturing and quality, and to learn how to increase productivity, reduce costs of quality, improve visibility across global operations and partners, and enable continuous improvement and lean initiatives.

Featured manufacturers will give exclusive plant tours showing Camstar’s Enterprise MES in production on the shop floor. Manufacturing executives will share insights into their success in leveraging MES and the real productivity, efficiency and quality benefits achieved.

The series kicks off with two events focused on medical device manufacturers. The first is in Minneapolis on Oct. 30, and includes a workshop and plant tour at Boston Scientific. Speakers include Boston Scientific and Terumo.

On Nov. 14, the series moves to Munich, with an exclusive medical device workshop co-produced by znt-Richter. Speakers include Carl Zeiss Meditec, Fresenius Medical Care and Sorin Group.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
