Learning the basics Featured

Want to improve your manufacturing processes without bringing in high-priced consultants to tell you how to change everything? WINOC-the Work in Northeast Ohio Council-offers four hands-on programs designed to help manufacturers modify their processes. All it takes is three daylong sessions.

The programs include direct participation in the manufacturing process-in the areas of quick setup, error-proofing techniques, total productive equipment and visual factory methods.

Sessions are divided into three parts: The first explains the tools and techniques needed for each process; the second involves visiting a host site for hands-on learning; the third is a forum for discussion and review on how that direct participation can be applied to each individual manufacturer's home shop.
