Upcoming Dinner Meeting & Guest Speaker

'How Suppliers Make It Lean - With Just in Time Deliveries?'

Speaker: Mari Wenrick

Mari Wenrick, Co-Owner of the award winning VAP Packaging, will tell us how suppliers can take the lead in supporting their customers’ lean operations. Technology has allowed them many new advantages in supporting the objectives of lean and just in time deliveries for their customers. She and her associates will demonstrate how VAP has taken the lead with their larger customers in eliminating waste, delivering in smaller batches, not 6 months lot sizes, and creating a superb customer service by engaging their associates. Bring your supplier of choice.

1. How VAP came to this stage of development.
2. Engaging employees how and what do they do differently.
3. Technology allowing quick changeover and small batch sizes, which eliminated the old 6 months lots sizes.
4. How the customer accepted improvements.
5. How delivery success and inventory turns are measured.
6. Advice to audience.
