Description

Many companies that have successfully driven their businesses forward during COVID-19 have utilised different technology tools to enable them to do so.

This webinar will showcase the applications that four Mid-West Lean Network member companies have deployed not just to sustain their businesses but to change the way they interact and collaborate with colleagues and customers whilst maintaining a focus on continuous improvement.

 

  • Jenifer Stratton, Lean Specialist with Reagecon will outline how the Company uses Tracworx to minimise any disruption that a positive COVID-19 diagnosis might cause to Reagecon’s operations and the benefits it delivers to the organisation. 
  • Neil Enright, Senior Lean Manager IDEM Division at Abbott Diagnostics Business will share his experiences of using Microsoft HoloLens to boost the Company’s productivity, particularly for ergonomic risk assessment, team interactions on new product development and in lean projects. 
  • Carmel Colleran, Manager, Continuous Improvement with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals will discuss the benefits of using Microsoft Teams to support Kaizen events in a virtual setting.   
  • Kate Ivan Clancy, Digital Consultant at LBS Partners will focus in on two software applications (Jira and Miro) that can be used for project management and process mapping enabling management and employees to collaborate with ease regardless of location.

 

This webinar will be of interest to anyone who wants to learn new ways of operating effectively.

The Mid-West Lean Network: the second largest regional lean network in Ireland, after Waterford Institute of Technology’s Lean Enterprise Excellence Group, launched in November, was set up to strengthen and increase the existing culture of lean within the Shannon and the wider Mid-West region. Its aim is to enable each industry to broaden and strengthen their competitiveness through knowledge sharing and bench-marking against each other and different industries.
