STCC offers manufacturing classes
SPRINGFIELD -- The concept of lean manufacturing is sweeping through the workplace from small shops to large corporations all over the world and the Center for Business and Technology at Springfield Technical Community College will offer two programs of interest to area manufacturers:
- "Lean Day: An Introduction to Lean Manufacturing" will provide area companies with information
on how they can identify and reduce wasted time, energy and resources on the job
- "Kaizen Day" will provide participants with the skills to identify improvement projects within their organizations and to tackle those issues using a powerful method of rapid problem solving.
These dynamic programs will be taught by Herb Robbins, a Six Sigma Certified Master Black Belt with over 25 years in the fields of Quality Improvement and Operational Excellence. The program will provide a hands-on factory simulation where participants work as part of a team, learn how the tools of Six Sigma and 5S fit into the streamlining process, and put what they learn to immediate use within their organizations.
Space is limited and interested individuals should call CBT at 755-4225 or 755-4501 to register or request a copy of the detailed brochure.
