Maximize your experience in Anaheim! Discover the latest trends in the ever-evolving field of advanced manufacturing. Network with engineers, designers, and executives, and become informed about the latest applications of the modern factory.Experts will deliver practical sessions on everything you need to know about designing a modern factory floor, rapid manufacturing, and lean manufacturing.
These 8 solution-packed seminars are organized into three key themes:
Designing a Modern Factory Floor:
We’ll cover everything you need to know about designing the perfect manufacturing floor. How do you keep your network safe? We’ll bring in experts to discuss that. How do you keep your factory floor modern and up-to-date? We’ll show you how. We’ll give you the tools and knowledge to ensure that your machines are communicating properly. We’ll show you which motors and parts are suitable for your purposes, and lastly, give you a clear differentiation between pneumatics and hydraulics.
The very latest direction for manufacturing: rapid manufacturing. Rapid manufacturing involves the use of additive manufacturing technology, such as 3D printing, which enables the modern company to design prototypes and to actually manufacture using computer-simulated images and layering techniques to develop products in very short periods of time. If you’re not up to speed on the latest in manufacturing and prototyping, these two carefully-crafted seminars will help you catch up on everything you need to know to leverage the very latest technologies to save time and achieve cost efficiency on the manufacturing floor.
The lean manufacturing seminars, led by the Institute for Operational Excellence, are designed to enrich your understanding of lean flow and achieving operational excellence by letting you take part in interactive activities and demonstrations. Map out the flow of value to your customer and lay out a roadmap for applying the lean guidelines to your manufacturing operations, no matter how complex the environment. Attend both seminars to take away the complete tool kit to value stream mapping and operational excellence.
