Our Plant Tour Focus Groups

Plant Tour Focus Groups are focused on continuous improvement along with the reduction and elimination of waste in our manufacturing processes.

Waterloo-based wood manufacturer CCW Architectural Millwork Inc., tapped into over 40 members logging in over lunch from the comfort of their shops to help solve the focus challenge.

Virtual Plant Tours!
Through careful planning we are successfully adapting our Plant Tour Focus Group.

Event Format: WMCO Plant Tour Focus Groups are focused on continuous improvement and the reduction and elimination of waste in our manufacturing processes.

  • Hosts provide an overview of their business, best practices, followed by the presentation of a challenge or problem to the group they are trying to solve or improve.
  • This is followed by a tour and a focus on the area in question. The group then debriefs with a facilitated discussion on suggestions for the host to help solve their problem and reduce waste in their processes.

Themes of Lean Manufacturing principles are referenced and benchmarked in informal discussion and information sharing.

Bring your people from your shop to see and experience common challenges and shared solutions. Best-practices for you in your own shop will emerge from participation from these WMCO plant tour events!

You need to be a Manufacturing member of WMCO to attend the Plant Tour Focus Groups. Associate members are by invitation only.
