Best practice in manufacturing principles
Starting in manufacturing when I was 16, I spent my holidays working in a repetition engineering factory operating milling machines and lathes making production parts to pay for my schooling to become a mechanical engineer.
Now, 33 years later, I have worked in all areas of manufacturing from concept to after sales service and from shop floor to senior management. I have been involved in a number of different industries including Aerospace, Automotive, Bio-Medical, Foundry, Glass, Healthcare, Waste, and Building Products.
A “lean” convert, I have been involved with the High Performance Consortium since its inception to promote and instil best practice in manufacturing principles and I won the inaugural Toyota Australia Supplier Kaizen Marathon in 2006. I have given a number of papers promoting manufacturing on topics ranging from Design for Manufacture to how to develop staff and engage employees.
An avowed manufacturing tragic, I believe that innovation holds the key to success and that any company can be successful if they can develop better products or processes than their competitors and maintain their success through continuous improvement.
