Deerfield, IL (PRWEB) August 15, 2008
Metal fabricators attending the Tube & Pipe Fabricating and Producing Conference and Roundtable will have the opportunity to get educated and exchange ideas related to the role of technology in delivering productivity gains and cost reductions to the production floor.
The interactive roundtable will take place as part of the Tube & Pipe Fabricating and Producing Conference and Roundtable, which will be held September 9-10 in Columbus, Ohio.
Moderated by Plataine's North America Vice President and General Manager of Sales Richard Piacenza, the roundtable discussion will explore the following topics:
- Avoiding bottlenecks and unnecessary costs on the production floor
- Managing the dynamics of real-time production floor scheduling
- Delivering uninterrupted customer service in the face of supply and production disruptions
- Realizing production line economies of scale in a small batch environment
- Linking real-time production optimization to your ERP system
"To keep up with the competition, metal fabricators need to constantly develop innovative strategies to increase shop floor efficiencies," says Piacenza. "New technologies can play a huge role in helping fabricators that operate in a small batch environment achieve unprecedented productivity gains. This roundtable will be a great opportunity for fabricators to get up to speed on the topic and compare notes with industry peers and experts."
