March Event 3/24/2016 – Joint Meeting with University of Toledo APICS Student Chapter

Register today for Ice Cream Sundae Production: From Job Shop to Lean Flow

This interactive workshop will compare a job shop layout to a lean flow line while participants assume the role of customer order entry professionals, production planners, workstation operators, inspectors or hungry customers placing orders.

The session involves two major exercises: first, a simulation of a traditional job shop layout; and then, creation of a flow line to demonstrate the improved lean environment.

Attendees will gain knowledge of the following concepts:

  • The advantages of empowerment and engagement
  • Lean improvements in productivity, space requirements, lead time and quality
  • Some secrets you never knew about Lean (which contradict the so-called “experts”)!

Facilitator: Sheryl Holbrook, CPIM, CSCP, APICS Certification Instructor, VP Education, APICS Toledo

Dinner will be a Tex-Mex Buffet, followed by ice cream sundaes for dessert! Pre-dinner program will be: “5S:  It’s Not Just for the Factory Floor!” Presented by Crystal Glambin, VP, UTAPICS Student Chapter
