In the rapidly changing world of manufacturing, remaining low-cost and efficient while pursuing opportunities for innovation and growth has proven to be very challenging.

This is where process excellence comes in. 

A successful operational excellence program can not only save your company millions in operating costs – it can also enhance productivity, drive innovation, and help build a world class supply chain. For two days, PEX Network’s Manufacturing Process Excellence Summit will help you build a world-class operational excellence program.  Taking place in Chicago June 16- 18, 2014, the conference is bringing together continuous improvement professionals from across North America to interact, innovate and explore what leading manufacturers are doing to build a culture of sustained improvement – and better position themselves for the future.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Linking your process excellence plan to business needs and changing objectives
  • Building an integrated process excellence framework that makes sense for your organisation
  • Creating sustainable continuous improvement practices  - even as conditions change
  • Improving talent development to build the foundation for operational excellence
  • Developing and communicating system wide process governance  - without hindering speed and flexibility
  • Transforming culture and employee behaviours to embed PEX throughout your organisation
  • Lowering costs, improving control and boosting efficiency through waste reduction and heightened productivity
  • Understanding the root causes behind process inefficiency, including issues of strategy and operating models
  • Using Lean Production Control as an invaluable integrating tool
