Ho Chi Minh City, February 15th 2010
Dear Valued Enterprise and Organization Leaders,
During the International Exhibition ProPak ande Plastics & Rubber Viet Nam 2010 at Ho Chi Minh City, Lean 6 Sigma Network (LSS) in cooperation with other parties organizes the Lean Six Sigma on Packaging Industry Seminar in the afternoon of March 18, 2010 (13h30 to 16h30) at The Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) at 799 Nguyen Van Linh Boulevard, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City.
Short Description of Presentation: Typical Toy manufacturing consists of plastic injection molding, painting / decoration, and assembly/packaging. Through the application of lean manufacturing techniques in all of these sub-processes, we have been able to increase quality from 80% first run quality to 98% first run quality, reduce work in process inventories by 75%, and increase productivity by 20%. This presentation will outline a typical approach for implementation of lean in a toy factory by presenting project based case studies performed on five toy factories in China.
We warmly invite Leaders of Enterprises and Organizations and/or Representatives to attend the Seminar and to visit the Exhibition.
Attached files are Tentative Seminar Agenda and Registration Form. As number of seats is limited, we suggest that Delegate should register now so we can organize this event thoughtfully.
We look forward to seeing you at the Seminar in March.
