University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor Rajan Suri, Founding Director of the Center for Quick Response Manufacturing, will lead a workshop entitled Intro to Quick Response Manufacturing: A Competitive Strategy for Low-Volume and Custom-Engineered Products on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Rock Valley College's Woodward Technology Center (WTC) 117.
Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) is a companywide strategy for lead time reduction throughout the enterprise. Using QRM, companies have reduced their lead times by 80-90%. As a result these companies have not only seen large increases in market share, but also experienced 15-20% cost reduction and huge quality improvement. Although Lean Manufacturing techniques can be powerful in certain situations, for companies making low-volume or custom-engineered products, Lean techniques do not apply well. Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) can be a more effective competitive strategy for companies targeting such markets. This workshop will provide an overview of QRM strategy and its four core concepts.
The cost for this workshop is $295 per person and seating is limited to 30 participants. The deadline to register is Friday, April 25. To register please call Bernie Luecke at (815) 921-2067 or e-mail him at B.Luecke@RockValleyCollege.edu.
