Event description:
Lean systems thinking and tools have maximized customer value and minimized waste, while focusing on continuous improvement. Supply chains have fostered unprecedented integration and collaboration along with globalization and specialization. Logistics, spanning material flow aspects of transportation and warehousing, has seen sustained popularity. Despite the attention drawn to each of these areas, their effective combination into Lean Supply Chain Logistics still leaves many avenues for improvement.

Join us to learn about the theory behind lean and to see firsthand how lean principles are applied to logistics and supply chain processes. This workshop will highlight the critical elements and "must know" concepts, and discuss the tools necessary to solve problems, eliminate waste, decrease inventory and lead time, improve processes, and ultimately decrease the total cost of fulfillment.

Experts, Mr. Robert Martichenko (CEO, LeanCor Supply Chain Group) and Dr. Thomas Goldsby (Professor, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University), will lead this discussion. Participants will gain experience with Lean Supply Chain practices via tours of LeanCor’s operations & lean fulfillment centers.

The event will be held April 30, 2013, 8:30AM – 2:00PM at LeanCor Supply Chain Group’s Headquarters, 7660 Turfway Road, Suite 200, Florence, KY (transportation will be provided to LeanCor’s Lean Fulfillment Center). Seats are very limited and registration is required. The fee to register for this half-day event is $50. Pre-registrants, as of April 23, 2013, will receive Mr. Martichenko’s book, PEOPLE: A leader's day-to-day guide to building, managing and sustaining lean organizations. ...
