|9:15 a.m.|| Lean Applied to Administration Processes
Learn how Fokker Aerotron has implemented Lean concepts in administration processes to reduce waste, improve performance and processes, create standard work, implement "flow" into work processes, develop shop Cell concepts, generate cost savings, improve time management, decrease inventory values, improved provisioning/planning of parts requirements, increase OTD (on-time delivery) and decrease TAT (turn around time) to better comply with our customer requirements and today’s changing market.
|10:00 a.m.|| Integrating CPI Tools across Non-Traditional Operations for LSS Sustainment
In this exciting session, Availl Services will share how their innovative and “outside-the-norm” LSS strategies has direct applicability to all areas, traditional and non-traditional operations, of their business (such as HR, Finance, Sales and Marketing, Supply Chain, and Distribution) to drive operational efficiency and keep LSS relevant and sustainable.

By combining Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM), a dash of Six Sigma, some predictive maintenance with the Lean Manufacturing tools of Root Cause Analysis, and Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), hear how FedEx Express created a new way of looking at Avionics component maintenance. This hybrid methodology resulted in, not only increasing the service life of aging technologies, but also substantial improvements on Mean Time Between Removals (MTBUR) and potential fault identification.
|2:40 p.m.|| Closed Loop Continuous Improvement - The Convergence of SCOR, Lean, Six/Sigma
A crucial step in ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of your process improvement movement is determining and locating the right potential projects, and then being able to measure the project success at its completion. The Supply Chain Council has produced the Supply Chain Operating Reference (SCOR) model as a framework for configuring and measuring supply chain processes in both Material flow, and Work & Information flow. Bob Parker, Group Vice President for Research at IDC Manufacturing Insights, and one of the original creators of SCOR, will present how the SCOR model can be integrated with Lean Sigma to provide a closed loop mechanism for sustaining improvement momentum. The presentation will include examples of how aerospace companies have implemented this convergence and how it can be applied to MRO processes.
|3:15 p.m.||Networking Refreshment Break|
|3:30 p.m.|| Taking CPI Beyond the Shop Floor
Over the last year, the Supply Chain group at United Services has been undergoing a strategic transformation that defines success as a service level, not as a disjointed compilation of department metrics.
