We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, Kurt Greissinger, Product Marketing Manager at Bosch Rexroth Corporation responsible for the new Manual Production Systems product line, will be presenting a program on the Basics of Implementing Lean.
Kurt began working as a Process Engineer and has spent his career looking to optimize processes and flows while eliminating waste. Prior to joining Bosch Rexroth, Kurt was helping to lead the semiconductor industry with its conversion to lean manufacturing. He holds a B.S. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an MBA from Grand Valley State University. He possesses Bosch Production System training certificates and is also a candidate for the SME Lean Bronze Certification.
In addition to the President’s Forum and New Features General Session, we have many great break-out training sessions on topics suggested by Tribute customers. In our Tribute session: Going Green, Chuck Hranac of Hydraulic Controls, Inc. and Terry Sasura of North Coast Seal will join us to give real business examples of what their companies have accomplished. The Tribute Software Program Priority Review and TrulinX Program Priority Assignment Boards will be meeting to go over programming requests as well.
Tribute vendor partners Enlighten.Net, Rubber Tree Systems and MRH Technologies will be presenting break out sessions and WarehouseTWO and Harland Technology Services will be exhibiting at the meeting. Representatives from Parker Hannifin and Eaton Corporation have sessions scheduled to meet with their distributors as well.
To help you recover from information overload, we have a variety of activities scheduled to suit almost any taste for the evenings: a golf scramble, a bowling trip, a tour of the Holden Arboretum, or watching the Cleveland Indians take on the NY Mets. As much as everyone enjoys networking in a relaxing atmosphere, our customers always take away useful information and concrete benefits that pay dividends for their companies.
