Make plans to join us for the 2014 Oklahoma Conference on Manufacturing. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 30 and Wednesday, October 1 at the Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Convention Center. The conference is sponsored by the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance and is our state’s largest gathering of manufacturing leaders. In addition to numerous speakers and mini-seminars, we’ve included an in-depth training program specifically designed for manufacturing professionals.
Tuesday, September 30, 2014
1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This year we’ve added a Tuesday afternoon half-day “Manufacturer’s Workshop” just for manufacturers. The 3-hour intensive training session will move past the surface and dig deeper into waste identification, operator balance charts, line balancing, standard work-in-progress, and one-piece flow. Led by industry experts from ISI, the workshop will show how manufacturers can take existing resources to quickly create more efficient flow, increase capacity and reduce work-in-progress. The workshop includes hands-on exercises where teams compete against each other while applying Lean Manufacturing tools. Concept training will be incorporated with real-world examples discussed.
The workshop is perfect for those looking to move beyond the 101 basics of Lean theory, whether it be in a shop floor or administrative setting.
It’s included in the price of the conference, just click the “Manufacturer’s Workshop” box during registration. But hurry, it’s limited to the first 100 who sign up.
