Mr. Ryan will explain how to automate business processes in a contract manufacturing, or ETO, environment. Based on his experience at EaglePicher Technologies’ Aerospace & Defense Division, Mr. Ryan will describe how the team at EaglePicher improved business operations and how other manufacturers in the industry can do the same.
