During the course of this week, I will be highlighting a few of the 40+ customer presentations which are planned at the SAP Manufacturing Industry CVN Forum scheduled for June 25 – 26 in Chicago.  This event is specifically designed to bring together Manufacturing Companies from several industries to explore and discuss how they have approached innovation to their operations.  This two day event mixes sessions on best practices with Customer led sessions focused on individual customer experiences. These are the sessions scheduled in mid-morning:

  • A Lean Journey to Manufacturing Excellence Utilizing ECC and MII at Olin Brass – Erick Epperson, Manufacturing Business Analyst, Olin Brass with partner SeeIT Solutions
  • How SAP Enterprise Inventory Optimization has Helped Manage Inventory and Improve Customer Service Levels at Joy Global – Lindsey Farrell,  Manager, Operational Excellence – Supply Chain, Underground Mining – Americas North, Joy Global                               
  • Harnessing S&OP Powered by HANA:  SMART Modular’s Journey Out of the Spreadsheet Jungle – Srini Tanikella, Director IT Solutions, Smart Modular, with partner Intrigo                 
  • Global Trade Services at Tremco – Kevin Riddell, International Logistics Manager, Tremco                             
  • Journey to Implement Change Management at Sauder Woodworking, Gwen Grisier – Engineering Data base / Technical Publications Manager, Sauder Woodworking;  Chad Richardson – Application Development Services / Technical Architecture Manager, Sauder Woodworking with partner LeverX
  • Dealer Interaction and Support at Toyota Material Handling – Michael Gunn, TMHU                       
  • Managing Global Design at Varian Medical – Mario Santana, Sr. Engineer, Varian Medical with partner Cideon

I suggest that anyone who is exploring change in their Manufacturing operations should investigate attending this forum.  Rarely are so many companies in the same place at the same time dedicated and focused on discussing, networking and learning about the latest tools and approaches for innovation in Manufacturing processes.
