Seminar - Reality Check: Is your ERP just automating bad processes - April 22
Can You Afford To Automate Your Poor Processes ?
Too many times we look to technology or systems to improve our businesses. They can, but can you truthfully answer these questions:

The President's Message
We had a great joint meeting with ASQ at our March meeting with Brian Hays from CNH Industrial discussing some important points on the ever relevant topic of Project Management. We had a lot of good discussion and questions from those in attendance which was great.
Our upcoming Spring Seminar and PDM promises to be extremely interesting and beneficial to anyone that deals trying to get the most out of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. This should cover just about everybody that works in manufacturing so I expect we will have great interest in this seminar!
We are in the process of identifying and possibly nominating candidates for open board positions for the coming year. If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact me. Or, you can visit with any board member at our next PDM. The benefits of being on the board are really attractive and we would be happy to visit with you about them.
See you at the next PDM or at the Spring Seminar!
