Managing Depot Variability to Create

Quality, On-Time Cost Effectiveness
Date: Monday, December 7, 2015
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
Location: North 124 AB

Objective: Provide an open discussion of innovative methods and processes to mitigate depot maintenance variability.

Abstract: Process variability, unknown defects, and emergent unscheduled maintenance can disrupt the material flow creating significant delays that ripple through depot production plans, schedules, supply support and engineering requirements. Attention and proactive management addressing these types of variabilities enables managers and executive leadership to meet quality, cost, and schedule objectives. This panel of leaders will offer insights into methods, processes, trade-offs, standard work, and repair strategies used to reduce depot production variability in support of quality, on-time delivery, at best cost.
