Poka-Yoke with ARM in California and Minnesota
Rotomolders and suppliers came together to trouble-shooting floor problems, learn from one another, and network at these June 2015 events. Both meetings featured a panel of rotomolders and suppliers addressing common and unique problems in rotomolding.
Poka-yoke is the Japanese term for mistake-proofing. Panelists shared examples of how to detect, define, design, develop, and deploy mistake-proofing..
ARM's Regional Meetings are inexpensive and always get rave reviews from attendees.
Testimonials from last year's regional meetings: "I feel the group interaction and problem and success sharing is very valuable at these meetings."
And: "I like the format as it is presented. The people that you reach at this meeting are given an opportunity to interact with other molders and suppliers that they may not normally get to speak with."
And: "Well presented and attended. It was a very informative and enjoyable event. I hope to be able to attend more in the future."

"This was the best seminar/hands-on workshop I've attended in years," said Terrance Gillian of Paladin Sales. "I and about 25 others were very impressed. We all learned valuable information that could be applied immediately back at the shop."
Rolling Meadows, Illinois
Attendees listened to sessions on resin choice, tooling, controlling wall thickness and more. The What's Your Problem? discussion opened the floor for all attendees to troubleshoot topics of their choice and was a favorite among many popular presentations.
