CEO & Co-Founder, Dave Evans, to hold session highlighting two customer case studies that demonstrate the economic impact of utilizing digital manufacturing to deliver increased productivity, reduced risk and true agility in today’s volatile supply chain environment

SAN FRANCISCO, May 11, 2022 – Fictiv, known for operating the leading Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem that delivers hardware at the speed of software, is pleased to announce it will be participating in the Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo™ 2022 in Orlando, Florida from June 6-8. This marks the first year Fictiv will be in attendance at the event, engaging with customers, partners, and other attendees in Booth #124.

At the conference on June 8 from 1:10pm to 1:30pm EST in Theater Room TH34, Evans will discuss how digital manufacturing platforms address supply chain challenges OEMs are facing today, and will explain how rapid product development and quality-driven workflows improve productivity and drive revenue growth. He will share insights on how to increase time to market for new, innovative products, engineer-to-order parts, and maintenance, repair and operations, along with how to retain product quality and reduce supply chain risk. 

“When I started out in my career at Ford, I quickly realized I was facing the 80/20 dilemma most engineers in the new product development world were dealing with. That was, 80% of my time was spent sourcing and vetting suppliers to get the critical parts I needed, versus spending 20% of my time doing what I loved, which was engineering,” said Evans. “I quickly realized there must be another way, a better way, and one that didn’t have me at odds with supply chain managers and other procurement partners. A way that could not only make my life better, but change the shape of how products were designed and brought to market. That’s when I decided to co-found Fictiv with my brother, Nate Evans.” 

The Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo™ 2022 provides companies with the unique opportunity to meet their peers, evaluate solution providers and explore what these solutions can do for a company. The world-class conference helps companies make smarter, faster decisions and deliver on an organization’s most critical priorities. 

“We invite attendees to come by our booth and meet our software and manufacturing experts to discuss how Fictiv enables our customers to rationalize unwieldy, fragmented supply chains and gain unmatched productivity, efficiency, and enterprise scalability through our digitized workflows that deliver an immediate ROI and end-to-end business value.”
