Advancing Lean Initiatives for Northern Ontario Industry!
EMC is supporting Northern Ontario manufacturers and related industries through an initiative focused on building greater productivity success through a new Advancing Lean/Productivity and Cluster Initiative for Northern Ontario Industry.
Through funding support from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Northern Ontario (FedNor), EMC is deploying a ‘Lean Management and Productivity Cluster Initiative’, designed to provide industry with enhanced productivity improvement knowledge, networking/benchmarking resources and new management and productivity system training.
EMC’s new Lean Management System (LMS) Training program enables participants to learn to measure, adjust, implement and sustain their own company’s strategic lean planning, while at the same time achieving positive ROI impact while they learn. With the added value of networking and benchmarking with peers through a unique productivity cluster approach, participating companies will also realize project ROI targets ranging from $25,000 to 100,000, achieved while they complete the program! In a highly successful recently completed program, annual ROI ranged from $50,000 to $400,000+ for participating companies!
The LMS training program will be deployed over ten 1-day modules, with added productivity cluster network events in each of the target regions.
In June 2018, EMC launched with a series of Productivity Cluster events in Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, North Bay, Muskoka, Thunder Bay and Timmins.
Also, in September 2018, EMC launched one day learning events in Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, North Bay, Muskoka and Timmins to provide new subject-matter content, tools and methods to provide additional technical knowledge for implementation of lean.
