"The US financial crisis has spiralled into 'the largest financial shock since the Great Depression' and there is now a three-in-four chance of a full-blown global recession."
Manufacturers seeking to exploit global markets, will soon be hitting an 'invisible' but nonetheless debilitating wall; mounting complexity across the value chain and lacklustre business performance. As the economic pendulum swings on the opposite direction, cost cutting pressures are very likely to put Lean Thinking back in the spotlight.
DIFFICULT TIMES DEMAND LEANER OPERATIONS
Yet, amid these mounting complexities, many forward thinking manufacturers are fully positioned for the challenge as they continue their quest for growth and profitability.
THEIR SECRET WEAPON... LEAN MANUFACTURING
70%+ Reduction in Inventory
30-60% Slash of Direct Labour/Staff Cost
50% Savings of Overhead Labour
40-60% Reduction in Direct Materials Cost
30-40% Cut in Capital Equipment and Capex
BEHIND THE NUMBERS....
Amazing business success stories, steadily taking market share from price-cutting competitors, earning far more profit than any other manufacturers,
and winning the accolade of business leaders worldwide. Intelligent moves in every corner of the operation, from product design and marketing to manufacturing and leadership.
Many who have emulated this phenomenal system have seen double and triple digit productivity growth, as well as unprecedented customer satisfaction levels. This included names like GE, Autoliv, Baxter, AMD, Solectron, Xerox...
Lean Thinking is bringing competitive improvements not just throughout the value chain, but throughout the company as lean principles are beginning to be applied to back-office functions as well.
THIS ADVANCED MASTERCLASS...
Will divulge how to get beyond a focus on the surface tools and techniques of Lean by creating a Toyota-style culture of quality - by showcasing a LEAN LEARNING ENTERPRISE..
You'll learn how to:
OPTIMISE MATERIALS FLOW
IMPROVE THE SPEED OF YOUR BUSINESS PROCESSES
IMPROVE DRASTICALLY PRODUCT AND SERVICE QUALITY
CUT WASTE TO THE ROOTS AND BENEATH
NO MATTER WHAT YOUR INDUSTRIAL SECTOR IS
LEAN MANUFACTURING ISN'T AN OPTION ANY MORE - IT'S A NECESSITY!!!!!!

Carlo Scodanibbio, born in Macerata (Italy) in 1944, holds an Italian doctor degree in Electrical Engineering (Politecnico di Milano - 1970).
He has over 39 years of experience in Plant Engineering, Project Engineering and Project Management, as well as Industrial Engineering and Operations Management.
Free-lance Consultant since 1979, he has worked in a wide spectrum of companies and industries in many countries (Southern Africa - Italy - Cape Verde - Romania - Malta - Cyprus - Lebanon - Mauritius - Malaysia - Kenya - India - Saudi Arabia), and operates as an Independent Professional Consultant and Human Resources Trainer to industry.
His area of intervention is: World Class Performance for Small and Medium Enterprises in the Project, Manufacturing, and Service sectors.
His favourite area of action is: the "lean" area.
He has co-operated, inter-alia, with the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce, the Cyprus Productivity Centre, the Malta Federation of Industry, the Malta Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Mauritius Employers' Federation, the Romanian Paper Industry Association, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation and the University of Cape Town.
His workshops and seminars, conducted in English, Italian and French, have been attended by well over 14.000 Entrepreneurs, Managers, Supervisors and Workers. They feature a very high level of interaction, and are rich in simulations, exercising and real case studies. The approach is invariably "hands-on" and addressed to immediate, practical application.
Joseph Micallef graduated in electrical engineering from the University of Malta in May 1992. He has been involved in the manufacturing industry since 1990. Initially starting his career within the medical devices and plastics processing manufacturing sector, he later moved on within the electronics manufacturing sector.
Throughout his career, Joseph has had experiences in a variety of industrial and automation processes, research and development projects, various manufacturing processes and occupied senior technical and management roles in research and development, process control, quality management, occupational health safety and business process management. For the last c. 14 years, Joseph has been occupying the position of Quality Manager within a very dynamic high tech electronics manufacturing industry sector.
Apart from his broad industrial experiences gained through the last c. 20 years, Joseph has also paralleled his experience within the services sector through his various freelance projects which he has undertaken since the year 2000 when he had ventured into the freelance consultancy and mentoring/training business.
Joseph's career spreads primarily in Malta, but he has been assigned several projects and training opportunities in various countries within Europe (UK, Scotland, Belgium, France, Finland, Italy), the US (Jacksonville, Houston) and the Middle East (Egypt).
Ing. Joseph Micallef is a corporate member of a number of institutions. In particular he is registered Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council (UK) - C.Eng., corporate member in the Institution of Engineering and Technology (UK) - MIET, European engineer through FEANI - Eur.Ing., and warranted member within the Chamber of Engineers (Malta).
The Lean Philosophy is changing the way organisations operate. No longer stuck in the paradigm of "mass" thinking, many manufacturing enterprises have tried to adopt some portions of the Lean road. Many have failed. Many have rushed off, taken a course and pronounced themselves LEAN. Yet very few have tested the depths of overall performance enhancement and added competitiveness possible with a complete change of paradigms in the "lean" direction.
This course will be a shocking course for many of you, because it demystifies all traditional principles of the first industrial revolution which majority of manufacturing enterprises are built or operate until today. By presenting in rather great detail the philosophy of the second industrial revolution and the main tools and disciplines readily available to all manufacturing enterprises to perform in an "excellent" status, this course is a door-opener to lean practices for whoever is:
ready to listen to the message - prepared to abandon obsolete principles, formulas and approaches - willing to get to "lean" status.
This course will prove that competitiveness today can no longer be achieved by merely cutting costs or revamping technology: because cutting costs has a floor, while performance improvement through maximisation of value-added and waste elimination has no ceiling - and because technology alone does not generate the levels of output value enterprises and organisations need to tackle the challenges of the tough times ahead.
I GUARANTEE that you will leave this workshop with the knowledge and tools to improve the value proposition of your operations!
See you soon in San Gwann!
