The President's Message
Hello Fellow APICS Members! I couldn’t be more satisfied with the relevance and quality of the educational experiences we have been able to provide the last two months! We had great comments about our November meeting and our speaker, Don Guild, who spoke on how to opti-mize operations through the marriage of MRP and Kanban. Our tour of Cox Machining this month was outstanding in that we were shown a great example of a very well-run machining facility. One of the highlights for me was their outstanding utilization of their ERP system and the excellent visibility of shop floor operations that was evident throughout the factory.
Our January meeting promises to continue the momentum. We will be meeting at the National Aviation Training Center Auditorium at WATC off north Webb and K-96. This is a great facility and it is always a treat to meet there. Our speaker will be Bill Brown, Senior Vice President of Global Customer Sup-port at Spirit Aerosystems. His experience and perspectives are sure to be very enlightening and I am really looking forward to it! I hope to see everyone there!
