TOPIC: For the entire year, Industry Council will focus on 6S Workplace Organization. 6S programs provide the framework for manufacturing and industrial operations to improve housekeeping, standardize processes, increase efficiencies and reduce accidents. 6S programs may fail by design and/or deployment, resulting in a lower return on the resource investment.
Each Industry Council meeting in 2018 will focus on one of the "S" methodologies - SORT, SET IN ORDER, SHINE, STANDARDIZE, SUSTAIN, SAFETY with discussion to help resolve your 6S challenges. We are pleased to partner with Larry Alford of Georgia Tech’s Enterprise Innovation Institute for this series. Larry and his team will be on hand at each meeting to lead the group in understanding and fine-tuning these processes with attendees sharing best practices or challenges in each of these 6S areas.
If you are interested in attending an Industry Council meeting, please email Paige for additional details.
SCHEDULE: Beginning in February, Industry Council will meet bi-monthly on the second Wednesday of the month from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. The location will change from meeting to meeting so that we can showcase different industries and participate in tours at each meeting location.
We will send out meeting reminders in advance, but please go ahead and mark your calendar for the following dates:
