Who should attend?

I need to gain an understanding of fixture design because:

  • I am an engineer that can benefit with further technical knowledge of fixtures
  • I am a technician who needs to become more aware of the details to be concerned with while testing
  • I am a manager who needs to obtain an overall insight into the requirements and effort involved in designing, manufacturing, and using fixtures.
