We are excited to announce that Paul Michaels, director of GMN Aerospace, will be presenting with Brian McCarthy, Enterprise Lean+/CVQ from The Boeing Company at the 2015 Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) Annual Expo. The IIE Annual Expo takes place May 30th to June 2nd in Nashville, Tennessee. Michaels and McCarthy will be presenting at the conference on Monday, June 1st.
The IIE supports the industrial engineering profession and efforts to improve quality and productivity. The conference is a mix of academic and corporate presentations with a focus around industrial engineering. Michaels’ and McCarthy’s presentation, “Partnering for Success: Creating a Win-Win Situation with your Company and your Suppliers” is part of the programs “Applied Solutions Sessions.”
For a number of years GMN Aerospace has successfully partnered with The Boeing Company to improve the quality and processes of its manufacturing. A few years ago, GMN Aerospace put on a Value Stream Team (VST) Event with The Boeing Company, which was led by Brian McCarthy when he was a VST facilitator for The Boeing Company. Since then GMN Aerospace has seen significant improvements in productivity and reductions in waste, and even held a second VST event to find more new efficiencies.
GMN Aerospace is excited to share what we have learned from our partnership with The Boeing Company at the IIE conference, and look forward to learning from other presentations. After the conference we will post highlights from the event.
