An insider’s look at increasing efficiency in materials processes

by Canadian Shipper

How can you increase efficiency in materials processes?

Marvin Lebold, Director, Materials Management, Source Medical Corporation will take a crack at explaining that critical question at the Canadian Association of Supply Chain & Logistics Management’s (SCL) Fall Logistics Symposium: Lean Logistics. He will explain how an aligned structure and process, and applied appropriate technology can be used to succeed.

Source Medical has been challenged with reconciling the high fill-rate expectations of the health-care industry with the tightening margins associated with government cutbacks. The company’s response has been to improve processes to:

 Reduce inventory levels;
 Diagnose and correct process defects; and
 Add efficiency to materials processes.

The result: dramatic service improvements with significant inventory and cost reductions.

The two-day SCL event takes place September 24 and 25, 2002 at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Road, Mississauga, Ontario.
