Professor Deborah Nightingale, PhD. of the MIT Lean Aerospace Initiative will present a keynote presentation, "Transforming the Lean Enterprise Value Stream," on Thursday, May 6, 2004, at 12:00 p.m. as part of the NEPCON East/Electro and Assembly East event. The co-located manufacturing shows will take place May 5 & 6 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA. The comprehensive conference program will begin one day earlier on May 4. Combined, the three shows will provide Northeast manufacturers with a single, convenient source for cutting-edge manufacturing solutions at the board, component, and final product assembly levels. In addition, attendees can see even more new products with the concurrent running of The Vision East Show featuring automated machine vision solutions. In her address, which is free to all registered NEPCON East/Electro and Assembly East attendees and exhibitors, Prof. Nightingale will share the successes that the MIT Lean Aerospace Initiative has experienced with their implementations of Lean. The presentation will focus on the need for contemporary networked enterprises transforming the entire value stream, including suppliers and partners. Dr. Nightingale will explain how applying lean principles to all life cycles, enabling, and leadership processes will be required to achieve value for the total enterprise.
