October – 2017

Marketing Options has just launched a new publication, targeted to buyers of all kinds of parts called the Part Buyers Authority

This first-ever content-rich publication, is uniquely told from the part makers' viewpoint, and will be issued several times a year on all kinds of parts, materials, and processes. All of the selected authors are using these technologies on their production floors and were early adopters of Additive Manufacturing(AM) technologies.

Our goal with this publication is to provide part buyers with a reference guide to better understand newer technologies for part production.

Our first issue is on Metal Parts Additive Manufacturing and discusses many of the new AM technologies that are being deployed to make metal parts.

Marketing Options Selected for Center for Operator Performance Conference

Marketing Options, LLC, announced today that they have been selected to demonstrate Virtual Reality for refinery control rooms at the April 2017 Center for Operator Performance Member Meeting in Lake Charles, Louisiana, at McNeese State University.

“With Virtual Reality (VR), engineers and operators can easily give input on a control room layout, eliminating costly changes later. In a VR environment, people can see and interact with accurate simulations of equipment and controls at the real scale. Then, they can easily make changes in the VR environment. This is far better than simply viewing a drawing,” said Barb Castilano, president of Marketing Options.
