Webinar Reliability & “Lean”: At Odds or In Sync? (10/10/2015)

Tulkoff_Cheryl2

Topic: Reliability & “Lean”: At Odds or In Sync?

Speaker: Cheryl Tulkoff

Overview:

Reliability and Lean are frequently thought of as opposing forces. Reliability is perceived as driving added cost and complexity while lean is all about stripping down to fundamentals. However, nothing could be further from the truth! If considered early, designing, creating, and building with reliability in mind is fundamentally the ultimate lean process.

Most organizations go wrong simply because they consider product reliability needs too late. This drives overdesign or failure – definitely not lean characteristics! Organizations that understand and identify reliability requirements from the very beginning create products that fulfill their customer’s need at both the lowest cost and greatest quality.

Learn more about the methods and ways that organizations succeed when they purse reliability and lean in sync rather than at odds!

Bio:

Cheryl has over 20 years of experience in electronics manufacturing focusing on failure analysis and reliability. She is passionate about applying her unique background to enable her clients to maximize and accelerate product design and development while saving time, managing resources, and improving customer satisfaction.

Throughout her career, Cheryl has had extensive training experience and is a published author and a senior member of both ASQ and IEEE. She views teaching as a two-way process that enables her to impart her knowledge on to others as well as reinforce her own understanding and ability to explain complex concepts through student interaction. A passionate advocate of continued learning, Cheryl has taught electronics workshops that introduced her to fascinating companies, people, and cultures.

Cheryl earned a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech and a Master of Science in Technology Commercialization (MSTC) program at the University of Texas at Austin, and is Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE); she will serve as a springboard enabling her clients to succeed in introducing reliable, blockbuster products tailored to the best market segment.

Webinar: Discover Deeper Value in KPI (10/21/2014)

It will be rescheduled to a later date

 


Discover Deeper Value in KPI Report-outs: General Cable’s Case Study


Tuesday, October 21, 2014 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM CDT

Speakers: Mark Feller and  Forrest W. Breyfogle III

Why do the tracking and reporting of key performance indicators (KPIs) often fall short of providing their expected value to an organization?

This question is too common in organizations that are committing many of labor hours and software expenses to producing a scorecard or reporting of their KPIs.  The real issues are not that the KPIs are poorly chosen or that they are assigned to the wrong people. The most common issue driving KPI underperformance reporting is that the presentation does not provide the organization with information in a format that supports making good business decisions. Attend this webinar to learn more!
