OMEP Roundtable 2, Part of the Manufacturing The Future Series of Events


Published on

Dialogue Continues to Build Manufacturing’s Future

OMEP has heard the manufacturing community’s desire (as expressed through the MESH/FUSE online conversation of this past spring) to focus learning opportunities on productivity through moderated roundtable conversations with their peers. This direction leads OMEP to focus on the elements of productivity (people, technology, and method) in an ongoing program of two roundtables and a symposium. Please save the dates as follows:

• Tuesday, September 24-Roundtable I
• Tuesday, November 5-Roundtable II
• Tuesday, January 14-Manufacturing the Future Summit

Let’s collaborate to make this a rich learning environment for all involved!
