NEXT: Strategic Solutions for Advanced Manufacturing

May 2 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

Session 3 in a 4 part series

Quality and Smart Talent

Lean and Six Sigma are not mutually exclusive. Lean is about making parts quickly and at the lowest cost. Six Sigma is about making perfect parts. It is our assertion that we need to do both. This requires four critical elements: 1 Capable processes 2. Reliable supply chain 3. Lean culture 4. The best people

In addition to exploring practical and universally applicable Six Sigma techniques, this session will deal with the last and possibly most variable element; people. Providing staff members a meaningful work experience, a sense of contribution, a vision and path for personal growth and tools necessary to successfully accomplish their duties requires that the organization provide them a defined, documented, robust and repeatable training system. OMEP’s Smart Talent program is a time tested method to effectively capture and control knowledge from those who hold the information and then efficiently transferring that knowledge to those who need it.

You will walk away with knowledge and strategies concerning:

  • Quality
  • Six – Sigma
  • Identifying and removing process variables
  • Managing the human element
  • Dealing with generational differences
  • Managing the knowledge
  • Smart Talent (Developing robust in house training systems)
