IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® invites experts to submit abstracts for the IPC Symposium on Lean for the Electronics Assembly Industry: Putting Theory to Practice. The event will take place December 4–5, 2012, in Costa Mesa, Calif.
“Real-life examples will be highlighted, and attendees will have the opportunity to learn from those who have implemented Lean,” says Susan Filz, IPC director of industry programs and professional development.
Abstracts are being sought on any aspect of Lean implementation, including: real-world, in-depth case studies of how Lean has been implemented in EMS companies; value stream mapping; Kaizen events; 5S; and Lean DOE basics.
Submissions should be of a noncommercial nature, and feature real-life experiences with practical applications. The individuals selected to present will receive complimentary admission to the two-day event. In addition, their names and companies will be highlighted in IPC promotional materials sent to thousands throughout the industry.
