Manufacturing is one of the premier global industries. It is one of the hallmarks of human advancement in science, and has played a major part in human history. If the dramatic changes in manufacturing processes were the hallmark of the Industrial Revolution, a chain of events that heralded the onset of the modern world that we live in today; the present world is undergoing changes of an unseen magnitude following the emergence of China as a major power, fueled in no small measure by its manufacturing prowess.
Manufacturing, seen as an industry and in isolation of the important repercussions it has had to history, is a process-driven one, in which constant changes, improvements, innovations and regulations are a given. It is an industry in which millions of people are employed all over the world, and hence, there is an acute need for regulation of safety at the workplace and with the systems. In addition, the techniques employed by this sector can offer scope for a lot of improvement and innovation.
Getting an idea of what manufacturing efficiency means
A manufacturing system that is productive in terms of numbers need not be the most efficient one in terms of safety. A manufacturing line that is busy all the time need not be the most productive of all. Is there a way by which manufacturing can optimize its functions? Is there a way by which workers and professionals in marketing can leverage the industry’s expertise and technologies, and on top of it, their own commonsense, to make a difference into the manufacturing process?
Yes, and a webinar from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will show how to do this. The speaker at this webinar is José Mora, a Principal Consultant specializing in Manufacturing Engineering and Quality Systems. For over 30 years, José has worked in the medical device industry specializing in manufacturing, process development, tooling, and Quality Systems.
During his career, he has introduced process performance, problem solving, and Quality System methodologies and has introduced process performance, problem solving, and quality system methodologies. His medical device experience includes surgical instruments, PTA & PTCA dilatation and guiding catheters, plastic surgery implants and tissue expanders, urology implants and devices for the treatment of incontinence, delivery systems for brachytherapy, orthopedic implants and instruments, and vascular surgery grafts and textiles.

Learning packed with real-life examples
At this webinar, José will offer real-life examples and how simple techniques can be used to improve overall productivity without the need to spend weeks performing complex modeling and analysis. He will explain how to identify a constraint in a process by its symptoms, and how to “chip away” at the constraint. He will show how some steps at the constraint can be done by upstream or downstream operations, and will describe the way by which to increase the overall throughput of the production line.
He will give participants an understanding of why measuring operator efficiency at the bottleneck actually adds to the problem, and will show how to overcome these.
This webinar is aimed at benefiting major decision makers in manufacturing, such as Managers, Supervisors, Directors, and Vice-Presidents.
