WORKSHOP #2: THE ROAD TO OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 | 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Manufacturers are increasingly embracing operational excellence to gain and sustain performance improvements throughout the enterprise. Much of this management philosophy is based on earlier continuous improvement methodologies, such as lean thinking, Six Sigma, OKAPI and scientific management. The focus of operational excellence goes beyond the traditional event-based model of improvement toward a long-term change in organizational culture. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to achieve operational excellence in your assembly plant.
