Despite using lean, six sigma, 5S and other tools, some companies still run into unpleasant surprises when they ramp up to build new products. That's usually because they're using the reactive tools of yesterday rather than the proactive tools they need. With the shorter product cycles and fierce competition of today's market, manufacturers need to use new predictive, proactive approaches to closely examine their products and processes in the earliest stages before investments are made, so that optimization can occur at the concept stage. This workshop can help you do this. It will examine the new proactive "magic beans" you need to survive and thrive over the next 10 years. The workshop will demonstrate, quantify and track every aspect of your product to ensure a reliable, high-quality end product, no matter what that product might be.
In this workshop:
- Hear why it's better to be proactive than reactive.
- Find out how to identify waste in design before you make your manufacturing investment.
- Learn how to resolve quality issues before your products hit the floor.
- Find out how to resolve manufacturing issues using the latest collaborative MRL tools dictated by the DOD.
- Hear how to painlessly maximize your use of FMEA tools.
- Learn how to make an irrefutable business case to design engineering so that you can enhance manufacturing.
- Hear how to structure a Munro Wall, sometimes known as PPIW or Obeya.
- Find out how to project "should cost" at the earliest phases of the program.
- Learn lessons that will make your business proactive rather than reactive.
