  Competitive Knowledge for Manufacturing People

=================================================

 August 23, 2004

 In response to subscribers’ questions about our “Best Manufacturing Practices Training Modules,” I thought it would be appropriate to share my responses with the hope that the answers they received will benefit you and your company as well.

 

      WHY ARE THESE TRAINING MODULES SPECIAL?

 

First, our training modules offer managers and team leaders a cost-effective training alternative to expensive and time away from job seminars.  

Second, they present best manufacturing practices implementation “how to” that separates manufacturing winners from the also-ran.  

And, third, our training modules were developed by a “been there, done that” manufacturing professional, Bill Gaw ... yours truly. :)

 These training modules are PowerPoint® presentation with my note page commentary. It's like attending a seminar, as I guide you personally through the process.  

They can be used as self-paced at your place e-learning tools or as PowerPoint® training presentations for acompany’s manufacturing team’s training program.  

WHO IS BILL GAW? AND, WHY SHOULD WE LISTEN TO HIM?

 I have over 30-years of “been there, done that” MRP, ERP, kaizen, lean manufacturing, six sigma, and ISO 9000 experience. My manufacturing career included leadership roles as a production supervisor, manufacturing manager, operations VP and president. I have participated in four successful manufacturing turnarounds ... at one turnaround company, we:  

* Decreased cycle time from 42-days to 8-days

* Improved inventory turns from 2.2 to 16.7

* Reduced operating costs by 22 percent

* Improved on-time deliveries from 92 percent to   4.1 sigma (99.4 percent)

* Increased profits from 34 percent to 55 percent

* Increased sales from $17 million to $255 million

* Changed a high-stress work environment into a place   where work became fun.

          HOW MANY MODULES ARE AVAILABLE?

 There are 20 different modules in our unique Best Manufacturing Practices Library:  

   Information Integrity   Performance Management 

   Sequential Production   Point-Of-Use Logistics

   Cycle Time Management   Production Linearity  

   Resource Planning       Customer Connectivity  

   Value Stream Mapping    Strategic Planning   

   Team Dynamics           Supply Chain Management 

   Kaizen                  Strategic Deployment

   Balanced Scorecards     Requirements Stability 

   Strategic Outsourcing   Supplier Management

   Process Management      ISO 9000:2000

 

       WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME AND MY COMPANY?

 

These training modules will help you and your company:  

* Optimize MRP, lean manufacturing, and six sigma   quality success

* Eliminate the high cost of systems chaos

* Transform your work environment from drudgery to   fun

* Minimize your company’s day-to-day stress level

* Put an end to costly end-of-the-month scrambling

* Increase speed, improve quality and reduce costs

* Reach your full growth and earnings potential                     

                      WHO NEEDS IT?

 If your company hasn’t yet mastered the challenges of MRP/ERP, lean manufacturing, six sigma nor ISO 9000; these are must-have manufacturing training modules.  

If you want your organization to break the costly "end-of-the-month” scramble, regain control of business systems, reduce day-to-day stress levels, and transform work into fun again, then my training modules are for you and your company.  

                    WHO USES IT?

 Our customer list speaks for itself. Below is a partial listing:  

Johnson and Johnson, Honeywell, Motorola,

SJ Medical Inc., Pitney Bowes, Oakley, Inc.,       

Cannon Instrument Company, Johnson Controls

Parker Hannifin, A. O. Smith Corporation,        

TRW Corporation, Maxwell Technologies,

Philips Medical Systems, Dana Corporation,

HP de Mexico, Volvo Construction Equipment,

Siemans Energy & Automation, Vishey,

Duke University, Loyalist College,

Federal-Mogul, Novartis Nutrition   

These companies are serious, as we know you are, about best practices implementation and improving their bottom line results.

           DO YOU STAND BEHIND YOUR PRODUCT?

 Believe this, I will never consider your purchase binding until you have reviewed all the material and put it into practice. I know that you like our other customers will be thrilled with the results. In fact, I am so convinced that the training modules will work for you that if you aren't completely satisfied for any reason at any time, simply return it for an immediate refund of your purchase price. You simply can't lose.  

             WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS COST?

 Much less than you would imagine. In fact, we make the training modules affordable so that they can fit easily within your company's training budget.

 Companies can order their training modules as they develop their training program and spread their cost over a period of a year or more. Your training program can be started for as little as $76.00. THERE’S NO NEED FOR A BIG UPFRONT INVESTMENT.
