It's thanks to the initial grant funding and the encouragement of the CCAT staff that we were able to push through the early challenges and deliver our award-winning GPS Pro to market. The resources available to us as part of the CCAT Incubator Program have enabled us to move out of the basement and into a real office.

The Intersection of Manufacturing and Technology
Technology is helping to lead a manufacturing come back in the U.S., in part shaped by social media, mobile, data analytics and cloud technology. These and other technologies are enabling small and mid-sized manufacturers to complete in ways not possible before and to break away from the industry's conservative, if-it-ain't-broken-don't-fix-it mentality. However, with innovation and culture change comes risk that executives should be congnizant of as they lead their organizations forward.

AME Event--Value Stream Mapping for the Office: Hosted by Deluxe Corporation--Groton, MA
This workshop reviews the eight basic wastes in the context of non-production processes. The manner by which lean thinking is applied to information intensive processes is then explored by making use of Value Stream Mapping - the assessment and planning tool of lean practitioners. Participants will learn to use this tool to: define the current state of an existing business process; re-design the process based on lean concepts; develop an Implementation Plan for the future state model. A case study is provided to enhance the learning process.
