Post-Conference Workshops: Wednesday, 25 May 2016

12:00 PM - 08:45 AM Managing the risk from secondary raw material price movements

Normal plastics contain comparatively high amount of defects compared to other materials. But what about new polymers that allow you to decrease defects and waste? Which new materials and resins should you be using to match your manufacturing and conversion processes?

This workshop will give you a comprehensive, up-todate look at the newest materials that you can use to drive down cost and increase efficiency.

Areas to be covered:
  • Minimising the effects of raw material price volatility
  • The effects of slowing oil production ... the historical and projected price movements of the raw material
  • Increase productivity by using the correct resins
  • Meet required grades of raw material to maximise quality

Who should attend:
  • Technical Directors/Managers
  • Supply Chain Directors/Managers
  • Production Directors/Managers
  • R&D Heads

08:45 AM - 09:00 AM Registration

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Utilising Value Stream Mapping (VSM) and blow moulding in lean manufacturing to minimise waste and reduce cost

This workshop will give you an insight into material management that will positively affect your bottom line by minimising wastage and streamlining processes. You will be taken through a real case study within the region, highlighting challenges and how to overcome them

Areas to be covered:
  • Discussing the strategies for overall waste management plan
  • Identifying key waste elements in the process and how to minimise this wastage
  • Learning how principles of lean manufacturing can be used in injection moulding processes to eliminate waste and reduce costs
  • Finding the feasible way to cut costs while also shortening lead times and times to market by improving quality

Who should attend:
  • Technical Directors/Managers
  • Supply Chain Directors/Managers
  • Production Directors/Managers
  • R&D Heads

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Networking lunch

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Start of the workshop
