Employing mobile technologies to bring plant collaboration into the 21st century can be one of the most effective efficiency investments to maximize lean strategies an electronics or high-tech manufacturer can make. It is becoming ever clearer that a mobile communication strategy consistent with the pace of life today, one capable of alerting the right people at the right time about critical issues can have a big impact on reducing wasteful practices, cutting costs, and increasing quality of fabrication operations.
Mobile technologies progressively working with your critical ERP systems can provide streamlined workflow to enhance lean strategies. Likewise, empowering employees on the plant floor and beyond with information and recording results “at the point” of activity provides heightened traceability and accuracy.
Join us for this session with Kathie Poindexter, manager of product marketing manufacturing and supply chain for Epicor Software Corporation, on the factors to maximize lean strategies with mobile technologies. With the rise of the mobile workforce, mobility is truly an ideal ‘lean’ enabler. In this session we will examine the top 10 areas where mobility can have the most impact on the success of your lean initiatives. Mobility is capable of stripping wasted time and errors out of virtually any process in any and all of your business functions, including fabrication, making mobility the ultimate platform to take your semiconductor manufacturing operations to the next level of lean.
