Dynamic Technology Solutions showed a strong presence at ACCELERATE 2022, the premier education and training conference of the Diverse Manufacturing Supply Chain Alliance (DMSCA). Dynamic was represented by Vice President of Business Development, Tami Schultz and Business Development Director, Bob Werner at the convention which featured over 30 leading organizations in the manufacturing space.
The event, held in Scottsdale, AZ last month, addressed practical small-midsize manufacturer development solutions, with a focus on digitalization of supply chain management in the current, ever-changing environment.
“There was a strong emphasis on passion,” said Schultz, as she shared her impression of the event. “Passion for digitalized supply chain, passion for the importance of diverse suppliers that innovate and drive results for leading manufacturers.”
The panel discussion around “Supply Chain Collaboration Through Advanced Manufacturing Technologies” proved to be a highlight of the conference. Featuring special guest, Felipe Bezamat Kuzmanic, Head of Advanced Manufacturing and Global Leadership Fellow at the World Economic Forum, this session addressed current supply chain constraints due to COVID-19. This topic has been a point of emphasis for Dynamic over the last two years, as the organization published multiple resources to aid suppliers and manufacturers in navigating the pandemic, including a proprietary methodology, Supply Chain Risk ScoringSM.
Another interesting session was a demonstration on the “Use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) and the Connected Worker” by Brian Townley, Business Development Associate at MxD. Brian detailed the use of VR and AR in the workplace, enabling non-technical associates to make repairs on complex technologies without in-depth knowledge of the devices. Dynamic has identified an increase in the use of virtual reality in the design and design for manufacturing phases of product development in its clients and the life science industry. This session was a welcome addition to the conference and educational for the DTS team.
The event was well attended and served as a homecoming of sorts for one of the prominent diversity-led supplier development organizations in the supply chain strategy sphere. After a long and patient wait, an in-person event provided meaningful interactions and networking opportunities.
“This was a great opportunity to collaborate with members of DMSCA face-to-face,” Bob Werner reflected in reviewing the event. “I was impressed with participation by leading manufacturers with key Sr. Leaders and staff in attendance. I look forward to growing the relationships we made and implementing what we learned into our day-to-day functions.”
