Video Based Education From Partners For Excellence
Do any of these problems sound familiar?
Here's a program by my associate John Dougherty that can help. Advanced Master Production Scheduling - Dealing with Features and Options is a four hour video-based education course focused specifically on the needs of companies assembling or finishing products to order from options.
Broken into seven major sections, the class covers:
Advanced Master Scheduling also includes a mastery test to verify your comprehension of the course material, a glossary of important master scheduling terms, articles on master scheduling, and answers to frequently asked questions on master production scheduling.
And as you'll see below, it's priced at less than half of what you'd spend to send someone to an outside seminar conducted by someone with John's expertise.
Use Advanced Master Scheduling as a standalone education program for a group of master schedulers, as supplementary material to the Partners For Excellence “Master Scheduling Instructors Manual” (a train-the trainer-course), as a complement to live education sessions and readings, or for individual learning.
As a standalone education program, Advanced Master Scheduling will support a series of education sessions that combine a review of concepts (reviewing the video based material) and a detailed discussion of how the concepts apply within the company. Four hours of video for this course would typically be equivalent to 5-6 two hour education sessions.
As supplementary material to the Master Scheduling Instructors Manual, this course provides additional detail on subjects like two level master scheduling, order promising for products that are assembled to order, integration with the finishing schedule.
Use it when your people come back from live workshops and seminars to reinforce their knowledge of important master scheduling concepts, and on an on-going basis for individual review and learning.
