PROVIDENCE – Polaris Manufacturing Extension Partnership will host a free workshop on company productivity and capital equipment on Thursday from 8-9:30 a.m.
The breakfast event is designed for company CEOs and owners, as well as engineering, maintenance, facilities and human resources managers or department members.
According to a statement from Polaris MEP, the session will examine how profit is derived mainly from manufacturing productivity; how that productivity is measured in low-product cycle times; and how companies can only achieve full capacity of their equipment with low-product cycle times with highly reliable equipment. It will illustrate how investments in equipment can be maximized and how higher skill levels are needed by operators.
The presentation, said Polaris, will offer insight into a lean system for managing capital equipment, called Total Productive Maintenance, including the five phases of TPM and 12 steps for implementation.
“TPM allows companies to maximize their manufacturing productivity, stabilize their processes, reduce product defects and create high profits,” Polaris said in the statement.
Registration can be made here.
Polaris MEP is located at 315 Iron Horse Way in Providence. Call 401-270-8896 for more information.
