FABTECH 2017 is being held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL and will offer more than 1,700 exhibitors and 50,000 attendees full access to over 750,000 net square feet of floor space.

Institute for Operational Excellence senior faculty member John Markland will lead a session at FABTECH 2017 titled “Creating Flow in High-variety Environments” on November 7 at 10:30 a.m. During his presentation, John will discuss how to overcome the challenges of creating flow in fabrication shops with highly complex products, demand and shared resources by applying advanced lean principles to create a value stream of multiple product flows at the pull of the customer. He’ll then show these concepts in action with case studies of complex manufacturing operations that have gone beyond basic value stream mapping to create a future state for mixed model production.
