Reliable Manufacturing Announces the Next Operations Excellence Master Class

Change management consultancy, Reliable Manufacturing is holding its next Operations Excellence Master Class on 19 June 2012, at Thistle Hotel, Middlesbrough. The one-day event is designed to equip leaders in manufacturing and distribution with the operations excellence and reliability principles to improve business performance.
The Master Class, jointly led by Andrew Fraser, Managing Director of Reliable Manufacturing (RM), and principal consultant Ron Moore, will explore the strategies and practices that underpin some of the world’s best manufacturing and distribution companies. Through inspiring case studies, attendees will see how the world’s best operations achieve maximum production capacity, and will have the opportunity to benchmark their own plant’s capabilities against best-in-class.

As businesses are met with the conflicting challenge of reducing costs and simultaneously driving business efficiency, the Master Class will show how market leaders achieve low cost performance not through cost cutting, but through relentless pursuit of defect elimination, asset productivity and workforce engagement.

Fraser, who has over 30 years experience in Maintenance, Operations and Change Management roles and specialises in helping clients change from reactive to proactive operating cultures, says: “The biggest challenge businesses face when implementing Operations Excellence, is bringing with it the required cultural change. But, like most big changes, the key is to break it down into a series of small tasks.” The Master Class offers practical advice on how to align leadership to a common strategy and engage the whole organisation by driving change through small improvements.

Principal Consultant Ron Moore is an internationally recognised authority on Reliability and Operations Excellence. He is author of books, ‘Making Common Sense Common Practice’ and ‘What Tool? When? – A management guide for selecting the right Manufacturing Improvement Tools.’
