World Class Manufacturing for the Small Business

Recorded On: 09/29/2022

Quality is one of the most important functions of a manufacturing business. While large companies invest heavily in sophisticated quality management systems, small businesses are often intimidated by these processes, fearing that they will get bogged down by paperwork. 

During this recording, Josh Saldivar, director of manufacturing at BluePrint Engines, will go over the proven principles of lean manufacturing and dilute it down to the essential elements that are beneficial to organizations large and small. You will learn the balance between a robust quality system and an efficient operation, and the value-add processes that improve quality without bogging down small businesses with red tape. 

Lean and quality system basics, how to decide what processes are right for your business, and how to implement quality systems without major disruption will also be discussed.
