Indianapolis — The American Mold Builders Association says industry knowledge meets critical thinking is the focus of its newest education series aimed at 40-and-under members.
Called "Get Lean – A Project Based Application Series," the six one-hour sessions cover "the why and how of lean manufacturing principles," including structure and application, case studies, opportunities driving process improvement and financial benefits.
The series will be led by Martin Karbassioon, a continuous improvement consultant. Each session will explore a lean manufacturing principle and offer exercises for attendees to practically apply the principle within their own facilities.
In the final session, attendees will share progress, series takeaways and examples of how techniques and processes have been or could be implemented in their own facility.
In addition, participants will receive mentorship from the facilitator on existing or new challenges as they relate to the implementation of the processes in the series.
The Monday morning sessions start at 11 a.m. Oct. 12 and continue Oct. 19 and 26 and Nov. 2, 9 and 16. The cost is $89 for AMBA members. For more information, go to www.amba.org.
