Operational Excellence in engineering | Duggan Associates



On June 11, 2014, Kevin Duggan will present a one-hour session titled “Creating Mixed Model Value Streams“ at the Tobyhanna Army Depot’s 2nd annual lean learning workshop. The Depot, a major element of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command, is a full-service repair, overhaul and fabrication facility for military equipment.


Kevin Duggan will serve as a panelist on a March 27 webinar titled “From Lean to Green: The ROI of Continuous Improvement” sponsored by IMPO Magazine. Designed for plant operations and maintenance managers, this session will focus on how, even though lean manufacturing isn’t a new concept, the modern plant can find some big reasons to give it a fresh look – namely, money saved by cutting lead times, increasing productivity and capacity, and reducing inventories.
