AME event: Quick, Easy kaizen: Not just another suggestion system
Workshop: June 14, 2011; Monee, IL
This workshop suggests a different path to lean success – a safe path. By using some of the common tools in a lean thinker’s tool box and focusing on safety instead of cycle time you can easily start to build an understanding and the acceptance of lean while you improve safety in your facility. Attendees will join a lean safety walk at Whiting and will be asked to identify lean safety improvement opportunities.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
