We're solving a trillion-dollar problem in manufacturing

Read about us

Manufacturing inefficiencies are an $8T problem

Twenty cents of every dollar spent in manufacturing is wasted.* Time, money, and physical scrap contributes to this waste, which delays programs, causes burnout, and stalls innovation.

We believe it’s time for a change, so we’ve set an ambitious goal: to cut manufacturing waste in half.

To reach that goal, we’ve combined our team’s world-class expertise in hardware, software, and artificial intelligence to deliver the world’s first Manufacturing Optimization Platform.

We are proud to provide core infrastructure for the world’s most admired global brands, empowering them to design, execute and operate with world-class efficiency.

From our founders

While working as engineers at Apple, we realized that electronics companies had a huge problem: manufacturing. We saw firsthand that manufacturing is inefficient and wasteful, and few tools were actually helping engineering and operations teams improve their processes.

So in 2014, we created a solution of our own: Instrumental.

Today, Instrumental is the leading manufacturing optimization platform for electronics brands across the globe. We’re proud to help some of the world’s most admired companies find failures faster and optimize their manufacturing process, while giving visibility into exactly what’s happening on the factory floor. These things simply haven’t been done before, and we’re excited to lead manufacturing into a new age of agility, transparency and optimization.
