From the President

Edward W Haynes, CSCP, CLTD 2019/2020 APICS Milwaukee Chapter President

Warm Greetings To All Members and Friends of APICS Milwaukee - 

We are continuing to work hard to provide meaningful education and networking opportunities for Supply Chain professionals in the Milwaukee area.

This past February we hosted a sold-out Women in Supply Chain Panel event at the Vino Third Ward. Special thanks to our four panelists: Andrea Parnau, CSCP, Briggs & Stratton, Jazmine Jurkiewicz, Port Authority, Amal Audi, MBA, CPIM, CSCP, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Marissa Readinger, Komatsu, for their wonderful presentations on their journey in #SupplyChain!  

We also hosted two Breakfast Roundtables and launched our Spring 2020 Supply Chain Workshops including Supply Chain Management Principles, Purchasing, and Inventory Management. We are excited to now offer our workshops via webinar and have had many participants take advantage of this new flexibility! 

We have many activities planned for the next several months outlined below.  

 

Last, but certainly not least, I'm excited to announce our new 2020 Corporate Sponsorship program. As a nonprofit organization, corporate sponsorship is critical to the success of the APICS Milwaukee Chapter and our community of members and corporate affiliates. The generosity of our corporate sponsors allows us to cover many of our operating costs and provide educational and training opportunities that directly impact many organizations, communities, and individuals in the Greater Milwaukee area. 

Additionally, NEW this year, one-half of all corporate sponsor contributions are dedicated to student scholarships on behalf of the donating organization.  We offer three levels of sponsorship as outlined in the attached flyer. I hope you will consider approaching your company about becoming a sponsor in 2020! 

As always, thank you for being a part of APICS Milwaukee Chapter. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!

Best Regards,

Edward W Haynes

President – APICS Milwaukee Chapter

WORKSHOP 6: NEW - INTRO TO CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT FOR HEALTHCARE

March 17th, 8:00am - 12:00pm | $169 per person

Continuous improvement for healthcare is all about the implementation of many of the “lean” manufacturing techniques and tools used for:

  • Reducing costs, delivery and process time
  • Eliminating waste
  • Reducing unnecessary inventory
  • Improving performance quality
  • Increasing overall internal customer and patient satisfaction
  • Improving employee involvement, morale and the organizational culture

The focus of this workshop is to provide an introduction and history of “lean” initiatives, principles for healthcare; such as, creating a lean culture, continuous improvement, value added, continuous flow and the elimination of waste.  We will also introduce the tools of lean, such as 5S, value stream mapping and the meaning of a kaizen event.

Along with understanding the basics of lean and continuous improvement for healthcare, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What does Continuous Improvement [CI] mean in Healthcare?
  • Why should we implement CI initiatives?
  • Where should they be applied?
  • Who should be involved?
  • How can we implement the tools of CI from manufacturing?
