5 Things to Know About the Hidden Factory

Posted by Angie Lin on Jun 1, 2018 10:21:39 AM

Every month, we host a meetup on a different topic. This month, John Carrier, a Senior Lecturer of System Dynamics at the MIT Sloan School of Management, spoke about uncovering the Hidden Factory. Since 2006, Carrier has worked with Arsenal Capital Partners as director of Six Sigma, where he is responsible for increasing portfolio company valuation by adapting and applying Six Sigma techniques to midsize companies.

Here are some of the key lessons we learned from this talk. To stay in the loop about other talks and events, join our community at the Boston Manufacturing Meetup.

Those Who Fail to Look at the Past Are Condemned to Repeat It

Posted by Joseph A. DeFeo on Mar 30, 2018 9:00:00 AM

I remember in the late 1980’s that a US automaker executive publicly stated, “we automated our factories and now we get defects at a faster rate!” Why did he say that? Because so many leaders like he thought the technological innovation at that time would make products faster and less expensive. And it did. But it did not make always make them better. The new processes just moved defective products faster through the supply chain because they did not remove the reasons for defects prior to speeding up the processes with automation. The production experts were not experts in quality and vice-versa. So quality took a backseat, no pun intended, to the speed of production. We seem to always play catch-up.
