Demand Based Manufacturing

  
Professional Development Meeting

January 13, 2015

 

APICS Tampa Bay invites local supply chain, operations management, transportation and logistics professionals to our Professional Development Meeting on January 13, 2015 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM at Bascom's Chop House, 3665 Ulmerton Road, Clearwater FL 33762.


Our speaker is Mr. Michael Ford, CFPIM, CSCP, Principal of TQM Works Consulting. He will be speaking on the topic of How to Plan, Schedule and Sequence for Demand Based Manufacturing.

 

This presentation provides attendees with the means to align their purchasing and production plans with market demand. It is based on LEAN concepts that minimize all inventories: raw materials (RM), work-in-process (WIP) and finished goods (FG). The facilitator will engage participants in hands-on examples that demonstrate the calculation of material flow from receiving parts, through sub-assembly, and ultimately end item production. Attendees will learn:


•The concepts behind demand-based manufacturing.
•The requirements needed to execute flow.
•How to calculate flow rates for RM, WIP and FG.
•How to sequence mixed-model production (MMP) to match demand.
•An algorithm that effectively sequences MMP.
 
Participants will require pencils and calculators to perform the math exercises (or be good at math!).


Bring your pencils and calculators and learn how to plan, schedule and sequence for demand based manufacturing!
