ATS training programs for MES and lean manufacturing

ATS Applied Tech Systems is now offering new training programs aimed at offering businesses the tools to improve their business process, by incorporating MES with ‘lean manufacturing’.

The new programs will expand the ATS portfolio of offerings; ATS offers training on the technical aspects of continuous business improvement, with workshops incorporating a holistic approach for continuous business improvement.

ATS group managing director, Mike James, said that the market is asking for structured and sustainable process improvements.

“The current economic situation forces companies to make optimal use of their resources. Many companies struggle to find the best solution to achieve this. Creating sustainable process improvements in organisations is the greatest challenge of our time, and ATS has used its experience to develop a powerful method: ‘Sticky Lean’ (sustaining Lean Method with MES in a way that it will ‘stick’),” he said.

“Unlike most consultancy firms in the market, ATS does have the technical know-how and experience to make process improvements permanent. This makes our training focus not only on the methodology itself, but also on the implementation steps, the pitfalls and the technical changes, which can support and sustain the process improvement. This holistic view integrates well into our task-oriented instruction model, which we are using for several months now as a basis for all our training programmes.”

ATS uses both lean manufacturing and Six Sigma techniques as integrated, structured methodologies to improve business performance, the company claims. ATS has completed several projects involving key introductions of Six Sigma, Lean and MES, and combines Lean and Six Sigma training with knowledge of how to implement and enforce within any automated or semi-automated environment.

For instance, Six Sigma statistical process control techniques can be used for in-line quality control, ATS claims. The trainings also fall within the ATS World-Wide Training Certification programme whereby accredited courses add points to individual certification.

Training programs are available in both Sydney and Melbourne (Boronia). Visit the ATS website for more information.
