The Life Cycle Institute is accepting registrations for its upcoming Root-Cause Analysis (RCA) and Materials Management Best Practices courses. Both courses will be held at LCI’s Charleston, SC-based training facilities.
The RCA course is a three-day course designed for those responsible for problem-solving and improving processes. Participants will learn and practice a method to approach daily problem-solving with proven root-cause tools. Instructors will help participants understand the advantages and disadvantages of ten different RCA tools and how to use the right tool at the right time. Click here for a detailed course outline. The next course is scheduled for Sept. 4-6.
Attendees of the Materials Management Best Practices Course, a five-day course, should be able to improve the return on their inventory investment by applying the storeroom operations principles they will learn. Instructors will help participants create a materials management master plan that includes key elements such as kitting best practices, KPIs for storerooms and purchasing, ABC analysis and effective work control processes. The course is designed for materials managers, maintenance managers, storeroom supervisors, storekeepers and maintenance supervisors, planners and schedulers within global manufacturing organizations.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
