Summary

Manufacturers know that the key to staying in business is to be competitive. But to grow the business and become more successful, manufacturers need to improve their efficiency. One of the most successful means of doing this is to embark on a Continuous Improvement program, which makes small, measurable changes that affect a manufacturer's Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and improve the business' profitability.

In this 50-minute webinar you'll:

• Get an overview of the history of Continuous Improvement and understand how various systems, including Kaizen, Lean, and Six Sigma came into being and relate to each other.

• Learn how Data-Driven Manufacturing provides the necessary support for any Continuous Improvement program.

• Find out what is required to make a Data-Driven Manufacturing implementation successful.

• See how a manufacturer can create a plan and process that will drive a Continuous Improvement initiative.
