Bromley, Kent, United Kingdom, 2012/01/04 - Reliable Manufacturing announces its next Operations Excellence Master Class; exploring the strategies and techniques that drive reliability and sustainable business improvement - Reliable-Manufacturing.com.
Reliable Manufacturing is holding its next Operations Excellence Master Class on 8 February 2012, at Gisborough Hall, North East England. The one-day event is designed to equip leaders in manufacturing and distribution industries with the operations excellence and reliability principles to improve business performance.
The Master Class, jointly led by Andrew Fraser, Managing Director of Reliable Manufacturing, and principal consultant Ron Moore, will explore the strategies and practices that underpin some of the world’s best manufacturing and distribution companies. Through inspiring case studies, attendees will see how the world’s best operations achieve maximum production capacity, and will have the opportunity to benchmark their own plant’s capabilities against best-in-class.
“The Master Class provides delegates with straightforward and practical advice on how to implement changes in operations and maintenance, in order to maximise process uptime, eliminate unplanned downtime, improve quality and minimise costs” explains Fraser, who has over 30 years experience in Maintenance, Operations and Change Management roles and specialises in helping clients change from reactive to proactive operating cultures.
Principal Consultant Ron Moore is an internationally recognised authority on Reliability and Operations Excellence. He is author of books,"Making Common Sense Common Practice" and “What Tool? When? - A management guide for selecting the right Manufacturing Improvement Tools.”
As businesses are met with the conflicting challenge of reducing costs and simultaneously driving business efficiency, the Master Class will show how market leaders achieve low cost performance not through cost cutting, but through relentless pursuit of defect elimination, asset productivity and workforce engagement.
“The biggest challenge businesses face when implementing Operations Excellence, is bringing with it the required cultural change,” acknowledges Fraser. “But, like most big changes, the key is to break it down into a series of small tasks.” The Master Class offers practical advice on how to align leadership to a common strategy and engage the whole organisation by driving change through small improvements.
The fee for a delegate to attend the event is £695 +VAT. For more details and to book online visit reliable-manufacturing.com or contact Andrew Fraser on +44(0)79 6764 4852.
