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
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
* Improved inventory turns from 2.2 to 16.7
* Reduced operating costs by 22 percent
* Improved on-time deliveries from 92
