The Evolution of Lean - From Cars to Chemicals to Supply Chains and Beyond

Presented by Process Industries Division
Sept. 23 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Peter L. King, president, Lean Dynamics LLC

What is known around the world today as lean began with Toyota in the 1950s. The tremendous competitive advantage and the dominant business position it has given them has caused more and more manufacturers, supply chains, entire enterprises and nonmanufacturing businesses to try to emulate Toyota.

This presentation will give highlights from that evolution and give examples of how lean principles have been successfully applied to nontraditional areas of application: process industry manufacturing, supply chains and service industries such as healthcare.

In Ergonomics, The Whole Person Matters

Presented by AEC 2015/GOErgo - Open to All
Oct. 16 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Colin G. Drury, Ph.D., professor emeritus, University at Buffalo, SUNY

As ergonomics/human factors (E/HF) practitioners we have become very skilled in addressing a limited range of problems. Mainly we deal with the physical side of the person at work, reducing injuries and physical stresses on the workforce. 

This webinar provides many examples of where the solution went beyond the physical effects on the workforce to find and address true underlying causes. It shows us how to use a broader range of the tools of our discipline to find better practical solutions to better fit the work to the whole person.

A Systems Approach to Healthcare

Presented by Society for Health Systems - Open to All
Oct. 28 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Kevin Nortrup, principal, Sugar Creek Solutions

Healthcare today is a system of systems, operating within still larger systems.  Not surprisingly, complex (and often unarticulated) interdependencies can lead to unintended consequences and unforeseen complications. Ad-hoc integration of products and subsystems – individually optimized but not holistically complementary – often causes projects to be overdue, over budget and under-performing.
