Workshop Series on Manufacturing Excellence Toolkit
26th April 2013 – Workshop on Rapidinnovation
Manufacturing Excellence in modern times needs at least five components to meet the highest standards of operational stability, efficiency and effectiveness on a sustainable basis. It is like the five fingers of a hand. To use the hand efficiently all five fingers must be effective. The five components are: –
1. TPM, CBM, RCM — Maximize Manufacturing Efficiency by minimizing wastage and risks
2. Rapidinnovation — Dramatically improves Productivity, Performance and Profitability on an on-going basis through creativity & innovation
3. Marketing & Beyond — New Age Industrial Marketing Strategies
4. Strategy– Formulate a creative company strategy to create great new Products and Services to solve problems of customers through efficiency and innovation
5. New Age Human Development Skills – Human Competencies in the new age – a more creative workforce to unleash human potential.
These are interdependent paths to excellence. Therefore they are inseparable.
Keeping this in mind, we intend to regularly conduct brief ‘Immersion Workshops’ every month to expose participants to these well-tested concepts filled with practical ideas, and follow-up with the “Master-class Series” which may be upgraded, on demand, to the Systems Clinic Cluster approach. At the inception level, all individual workshops would be of 5 hours duration which would include lunch and 2 tea-breaks. We are launching the Excellence Series with the second workshop on 26th April, 2013, at the Indian Chamber of Commerce, Meeting room 1, 9th Floor, 4 India Exchange Place, Kolkata 700001.
