CPDA has announced that Michael Kennedy, Founder and CEO of Targeted Convergence Corporation, will join Jim Tung of MathWorks as a keynote speaker at its annual PLM Road Map conference, to be held at The Inn at St. John’s, outside of Detroit on September 28-29.
In his keynote address, “Set-Based Product Development: Never Allow your Designers to be Painted into a Corner,” Michael Kennedy will show set-based design as a way of converging knowledge into collaborative decision-making that he says will deliver products on schedule with consistent profits.
Specification-driven design is widely accepted, but the resulting point-based design makes it inherently difficult to effectively collaborate with other organizations during product development. Set-based design can facilitate collaboration and learning across organizations, according to CPDA. This presentation will explain what, why, and how you can adopt this thinking.
