This workshop is designed to view the obstacles of plastic manufacturing from the perspective of the end product owner. Pinpointing an issue gets easier the closer you get to the manufacturing source, but what happens if you're not near the source or if you don't know which path to use to track down the problem? The workshop will include a speaker who has experience dealing with these rabbit holes and how to recognize what issues matter and what aren't really issues, discussing how to approach a problem of a plastic product, creating a troubleshooting mindset to systematically attack the issue instead of just jumping in without an organized plan thought out. The speaker will be followed by a roundtable of experts in different fields and plastics processes, offering up how they target their product issues.
