Solar Turbines Tour focusing on Visual Management
Join us for a Lean sharing tour at Solar Turbines Incorporated on July 25, with a focus on Visual Management applied to Manufacturing, Transactional, and Engineering processes. Solar Turbines is one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial gas turbine systems, with more than 15,000 installed in 100 countries, and service capabilities available for every unit around the world. Long known as a pioneer in the design and manufacture of gas turbine systems, Solar has a strong history of introducing innovative energy solutions that support Oil & Gas and Power Generation customers.
The Lean sharing event will include a discussion session amongst AME Consortium members focused on the benefits of using Visual Management to monitor and improve value stream performance. After the round table, the group will tour 3 areas where Solar is applying Visual Management in the Manufacturing/Assembly area, the Engineering Design floor, and Transactional office processes such as Finance, HR and IT. The goal at Solar is to make processes visual, in order to uncover potential velocity and quality improvement opportunities. This sets the stage for Employees to engage in problem solving to eliminate waste, and streamline processes. The ultimate goal is to deliver more value to the Customer through continuous improvement of People, Quality, Velocity, and Cost.
Attendees must wear flat heel shoes that cover the top of the foot. Solar will provide safety glasses.
