People don’t want to make mistakes, but all workers make them. Learn how simple Poke-Yoke fool proofing may remove the possibilities for error. Production devices or design for assembly criteria can eliminate mistakes before they happen. Achieve the reliable, continuous flow of Lean manufacturing.Show similar events in:
In this workshop, you will learn two different tools for improving new and existing designs: FMEA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate a design and determine potential negative effects, prioritize the effects by quantifying their magnitude, and identify and implement actions to address the effects. DFMA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate components to ensure they are manufacturable, evaluate parts to ensure they are “necessary,” and evaluate the characteristics of an assembly: part-to-operator interface, part-to-part interface, fastening methodology, non-value steps.

DOE statistical tools can be applied to improve quality, processes, designs and many Lean and 6 Sigma problems. It is a powerful statistical method to develop mathematical transfer functions (eg. V=IR, but too complex for first principles) or relationships of a result based on complex dependencies. Bring a laptop with Minitab loaded. A free 30-day trial version is available at www.minitab.com. Do not access through a VPN.
Engineers will often use the logical, but expensive, method of changing one factor at a time (OFAT) while holding the rest constant. The better alternative often is DOE which reduces the number of experiments while returning greater knowledge at minimum cost!Show similar events in:
This workshop is about successful project implementation. Participants will study critical steps that highly impact effective projects. Learn to develop plans, actions, budgets, and metrics to define success; establish realistic goals and schedules; effectively communicate project responsibility and deadlines; and respond to workload and people problems in a timely and productive manner. This is a Practical Application Workshop. Bring an active project to customize for your business.Show similar events in:

Does the desire to act overpower the need to understand? Understanding the problem, the process, the people and the distinctions between the types of causes are all stepping stones to effective root cause analysis to permanently eliminate problems from recurring. When structured methods and tools are used, this can be accomplished.Show similar events in:
Maintenance is a valuable and key part of your continuous improvement journey; do you have a culture and tools to support that journey? In this workshop, you will learn how to build and maintain a robust preventative maintenance system from the ground up. Learn how to ensure the success of your PM program using the fundamentals of Lean, 5S, Autonomous Maintenance and culture change.Show similar events in:
The choices you make in design determine your fate in manufacturing. Integrated Product and Production Development (IPPD) goes well beyond simple design for manufacturing into the realm of concurrent engineering. IPPD techniques align everything from design intent through saleable production to ensure that processes are scalable, repeatable, in-control and all decisions maximize the benefit to your company.Show similar events in:
Lean Product Development is focused on improving the speed-to-market for new products and the performance of the project team. It uses practical approaches to improve project results by utilizing a holistic approach to improving how product development is managed.Show similar events in:
