Originally Held
December 10, 2020
When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade. But when life throws you a pandemic, what do you do? For manufacturers, you have to figure out how to deal with supplier issues and changing market requirements. This could mean redesigning your product to utilize different materials or address new customer needs, or it could mean you have to reuse and remanufacture components in order to meet demand. The current manufacturing landscape is extremely dynamic, and developing some product workarounds can help navigate the crisis.
