Better Builders: An online community of engineers

Join a growing group of mechanical, product design, electrical, reliability, manufacturing, process, and other hardware engineers who want to learn, debate, and share best practices so that together we can elevate the manufacturing industry.

Better Builders is a tactical and practical community where we talk about real engineering. In order to join this invite-only community please submit your information. Every submission is vetted as we would like to preserve this space for professionals working in the discrete manufacturing space: electronics, automotive, medical device, etc.

Without Instrumental, fixing the issue and delivering customer satisfaction would have been slower, harder, and more expensive.

Burc Sahinoglu

Chief Technology Officer


[Instrumental] transformed us to the next level of product. These are new capabilities we don’t have.

VP of Manufacturing Technologies

$15B Mission-Critical Electronics Leader

Nobody provides the contextualization and user experience that Instrumental has developed. This is the holy grail of data correlation.


Director of Operations


By using Instrumental, it was like being at the factories. The transparency Instrumental provided resulted in more prompt attention and a higher level of care for our line, putting us on the same level of priority as other customers with higher volume.

Bill Maginn

Operations Engineering | Manufacturing | NPI Leader Manager,


Open access to data and quick identification of the failure mode allowed us to cut nearly four weeks off our project schedule.

Chris Fisher

Senior Test and Quality Manager,


Within a few weeks, we discovered the root cause of an issue — and we figured it out right from our own desks. This was a game-changer that will help us deliver the best possible product to our customers.

Mike Schuetz

Manufacturing Engineering Manager,


We rely heavily on Instrumental to make sure that what happens is what is meant to happen.

Principle Applications Scientist


Instrumental reduces the number of experimental builds needed to validate our products during development.

Dave Konczal

Director of NPI


Programs that used Instrumental during development ramped faster than products that did not use it.

Lyon Wang

Director of Engineering & NPI,


The Instrumental System built a virtual library of evidence. Instead of worrying what we were missing, we could identify early issues and prevent quality gaps.
