MORE DAY TWO KEY EVENTS
After refueling with lunch the second half of the day will commence with simulation technology: achieving a performance-enhanced supply chain, starting promptly at 12:45 p.m. Simulation technology has been around for decades, used by scientists and engineers to help predict behavior under the challenge of real-world variability.

The new business climate is driving unprecedented demand for simulation and the IT evolution is enabling the supply of reliable technology to support this. Join Jeff Metersky, Vice President of Solutions Strategy for Llamasoft, simulation technology thought leader as he educates, entertains and enlivens the crowd with the latest on how to achieve a performance-enhanced supply chain.
