The Association of Manufacturing Excellence (AME) has announced it is offering discounted rates for UK and Ireland delegates attending its annual conference in Dallas.
The event, which is the largest manufacturing excellence conference in North America, runs from the 16th to the 20th of October and it will now cost only 980.00 for UK and Ireland members, a staggering 33% discount. For non-members there is a special package that combines the event and a year's annual membership for 1,100.00.
Available through its UK-based chapter, AME-UK, the special offers have been created to help operations managers in the UK and Ireland benefit from a unique opportunity to learn from other professionals and organisations from around the world. The event offers a choice of 60 best practice presentations, 30 workshops, 20 plant tours and a companion program. There will also be eight keynote speakers including Jim Collins, author of 'Built to Last' - a fixture on the Business Week bestseller list for more than six years - and New York Times bestseller, 'Good To Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap And Others Don't".
Bob Davis, President of AME-UK explains, "There is a misconception that in order to see dramatic improvements you have to invest in expensive equipment or automation. That's simply not true. Some of our members have been able to halve their product development lead-time and others have reduced inventory and set-up time by up to 80% - all just by sharing knowledge and experience."
AME is a non-profit organisation with more than 6,000 members worldwide that represent a cross section of manufacturing industries and practices - from food production to chemical processing. Its aim is simple; to provide an opportunity for managers in the manufacturing industry to exchange ideas that will radically reduce costs and improve profits.
Dedicated to lean and world-class manufacturing practises, AME provides a wide range of educational tools for its members including events, site visits, seminars, workshops and a quarterly publication, Target.
