Taking a Collaborative & Integrated Approach to Cost Optimisation & Reduction

How to Achieve Accurate & Efficient Workflows to Gain a Vital Competitive Edge

The 3rd annual Automotive Cost Engineering & Design Collaboration summit has gone digital

This is the only conference to bring together cost, design and purchasing teams on a global stage to advance approaches, design-stage costings, and critical decisions related to materials, components, and manufacturing processes.

Be part of the most pressing cost challenges ranging from supply chain collaboration and team integration, electrification and internal digitalisation, and organisational strategies and cost engineering methodology.

Join your peers this year to:

  • Discover forward-thinking strategies to optimise costs by aligning your entire organisation on cost engineering
  • See how collaboration and integration can result in more efficient and accurate cost engineering
  • Examine the most innovative strategies to estimate costs for electric components and internally automate the process of cost engineering

Join OEMs, tier 1, and tier 2 suppliers from the US, Europe, and the rest of the world to take your team's performance, efficiency and transparency to the next level.
