Lean In Action!
Since 2008, PIA MidAmerica members have been meeting on a regular basis to learn more about Lean Manufacturing (a.k.a. Lean Enterprise). A Roundtable group meets several times a year in Kansas City as well as another group meeting in Dallas/Fort Worth.
In 2014, approximately 15 companies in the Dallas/Fort Worth region decided it was time to begin looking at the Lean process and have now met several times. Participation is becoming broader at every meeting (there were over 40 in attendance at the August meeting) and more and more companies are exploring how they can adapt/adopt Lean methodologies to help them improve their operations.
If you are interested in learning more about these groups, please contact:
“As a long time practitioner of Lean, I’ve found PIA MidAmerica’s Lean in Action seminars to be remarkable for their consistent high quality content: presenters who are experts in Lean, top notch tours, and some excellent group interaction. As print manufacturers, we all have to be masters of better-faster-lower cost, and these PIA Lean sessions have been outstanding for getting you thinking in that direction.”
