The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME), along with the High Performance Manufacturing Consortium, is offering a team-based workshop Nov. 19-20, in Mississauga, Ont. Senior management and executive team members will have the opportunity to develop a world-class plant layout that will increase effectiveness of operations and reduce manufacturing cycle times by up to 90%. Participants will be divided into five- or six-person teams to develop solutions to an actual case study. These solutions will be compared to the actual implementation. Attendees are encouraged to bring along current layout challenges for discussion. For more information, contact AME at (847) 520-3282, ext. 223.
