Several times throughout the year, the National Fluid Power Association offers short networking opportunities through its Regional Meeting series. The final event of the year will be hosted in the Chicago region, at Harper College in Palatine, Ill., located just west of Il-Hwy 53 on Algonquin Road. The lunch meeting on December 7 is free and open to members and non-members.
The program will feature Brad Terry, Principal with The Keystone Group. Terry will review common pitfalls that manufacturing companies face in the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process. By definition, the S&OP process touches multiple functions within every organization, and is commonly where symptoms such as excess inventory, customer delivery issues, high overtime costs, expediting fees, and many others manifest themselves. He will share actionable takeaways and be happy to address questions.
If you can’t make the Chicago meeting, check out the Cleveland Regional Meeting slated for November 16. These events are great opportunities to catch up with friends, make connections, and learn something new.
