While working as engineers at Apple, Instrumental founders Anna-Katrina Shedletsky and Samuel Weiss saw firsthand that despite great engineering and operational execution, electronics manufacturing is inefficient and wasteful. So in 2015, they created Instrumental, the leading Manufacturing Optimization Platform for electronics brands driving digital transformation of manufacturing across the globe.

Instrumental helps the world’s most admired companies find failures faster and optimize their manufacturing process, while giving remote visibility into exactly what’s happening on the factory floor. These things simply haven’t been done before, and Instrumental is leading manufacturing into a new age of agility, traceability, and efficiency.

Twenty cents of every dollar spent in manufacturing is wasted. Instrumental believes it’s time for a change and to transform the way companies manufacture, and we have set an ambitious goal: to cut manufacturing waste in half.  Instrumental has combined expertise in hardware, software, and artificial intelligence to deliver the world’s first Manufacturing Optimization Platform.
