Keynote Presentation:Maria Elena Stopher, President, ULTIMATE LEAN, INC.
Topic: 3P - Production, Preparation, and Process
Ms. Maria Elena Stopher is a leading expert on Lean Enterprise who has led numerous business process reengineering engagements for a wide variety of federal government and private sector clients. Early in her career, she worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology helping to build the MEP program leaving there to serve as Director of Product Development for the Lean Enterprise Institute. Her consulting firm, ULTIMATE LEAN INC., has served clients such as the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (USHUD), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), USDA, and the United States Air Force as well as notable commercial clients such as Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, Astra Zeneca, Perdue Farms, State Farm Insurance.
Maria Elena's presentation will provide an overview of 3P (The Production Preparation Process). 3P is a powerful means of taking a big-picture look at how a product is designed and manufactured. It guides teams through the creative process of generating ideas, and then whittles the ideas down to one that will be implemented.
This overview will answer more in depth on what 3P is, the process, the benefits, and several examples. A 3P project can focus on either the process or product design or both.
