I also worked out a neat trick to make it easier and more efficient to place the boning channels and waist tape. I used Stitch Witchery to secure the waist tape and to place the boning channels against the seams inside the coutil. I know the pattern and know my body, so I know how many boning channels I will need to appropriately support my body. This is the stage where additional boning channels can be added. After the channels were temporarily bonded to the coutil, I stitched them down.
