A manufacturing excellence Masterclass that gives a comprehensive overview of the different models used to describe and analyse a manufacturing system
Manufacturing Excellence is the execution of the business strategy more consistently and reliably than the competition and is evidenced by results. Given two companies with the same strategy, the company with best Manufacturing Excellence will deliver faster, have lower operational risk, lower operating costs, more sustainable quality and yield and increased revenues and profits relative to its competitors, creating value for customers and shareholders. For a business leader, it is important to have insights into the key indicators or drivers regarding Manufacturing Excellence and the efficiency of his production organisation.
This Masterclass lasts about 16 hours including time for questions and answers and will be presented in English. In this class we consider the 3 layers in a manufacturing plant: the machining process, the production organisation and the people working in both. During this Masterclass machining is considered as a generic, yet very typical production process. Cutting tool range presentation or application descriptions are not included. Questions related to specific product range issues or application conditions shall not be dealt with during this Masterclass.
