Steve Deam, Jr. is speaking at the JobshopLean 2011 Conference at Ohio State University

Because of the extensive work that CNC Industries has done in the area of using technology to support lean manufacturing, Steve Deam Jr. has been invited to speak at the JobshopLean 2011 Conference hosted by Ohio State.

The purpose of this conference is to explore the many ways that implementing Lean Manufacturing in a Jobshop is different than implementing it in Toyota.  The primary difference, as quoted from the “Jobshoplean” web site, is:  “A typical Jobshop is a HIGH-mix and VARIABLE-volume manufacturer of a large variety of components. Whereas, Toyota is a LOW-mix HIGH-volume manufacturer of a few assembled products. Consequently, while it is easy to recognize “Value Streams” at Toyota and many of their Tier 1 suppliers, this is a challenge in the case of a Jobshop where 100’s, if not 1000’s, of different routings need to be grouped into process families.”

Steve will be speaking on September 7, 2011 from 8:00am to 9:00am.   He will discuss numerous ways that using technology can cut overhead expenses as well as facilitate Lean production in the shop.

Topics will include:

• Utilizing standard software and computers to a greater extent than the typical machine shop

• Document Management

• Corrective Actions Management

• Data Collection, Data Processing into Information for Decision Support and Information Transfer across the Shop

• Data Visualization
