Gain a fresh perspective on your productivity
The Manufacturing Advisory Service, through their South West arm at SWMAS Ltd, are hosting a free workshop this September to help manufacturers improve their productivity.
The free Improve Your Productivity workshop will take place on Tuesday 15 September, from 9.30am - 12.30pm at Sandy Park, Exeter, and is aimed at key decision-makers within SME-sized manufacturing businesses.
Philip Halse, SWMAS Business Growth Manager for Devon said:
"These workshops are aimed at individuals with the foresight to recognise the potential benefits associated with socio-technical business process design. During the sessions, we’ll look at the social and technical sub-systems in isolation and consider some of the key principles associated with each.
"We’ll also consider the potential. What can be achieved if you consider both together?"
Much of the learning that the workshop will be based on the results of the MAS Manufacturing Barometer survey. The quarterly survey maps trends and challenges within the industry at a national and regional level.
The most recent survey revisited the theme of productivity and found that 84% of SME manufacturing businesses nationally, and 81% in the South West felt they needed 'to improve productivity in the next six months if they are to achieve their growth plans.’
