According to Design News, you’ll get an opportunity to attend five programs on emerging technology for manufacturing at next week’s Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show in Anaheim, Calif. These two-hour programs are available to all attendees of the Pacific Design and Manufacturing Show, as well as its co-located events: MD&M West, ATX West, PLASTEC West, AeroCon, Electronics West, and WestPack.
One of the five programs is Lean Manufacturing. The Lean Manufacturing program will cover a wide range of recently introduced plant technology. Lean Six Sigma is a powerful process-improvement methodology that is increasingly employed in a wide variety of industries. In this session, attendees will learn how lean transformation can dramatically empower and engage the workforce with an effort to remain agile, dynamic, and successful as demands grow more complex. The roles and responsibilities needed for a successful lean program will also be discussed.
The program will be presented by Subra Manivannan, quality/continuous improvement manager at Comau (FIAT division), and Stefan Schmidt, process and quality management for VWI-Germany.
