MassMEP Lean Roundtable Series:
Benthos, Inc., Falmouth, MA

The MassMEP Lean Roundtable Series continues in May at Benthos! The Lean Roundtable series is an invitation-only event that brings together Lean practitioners for a morning of networking and knowledge sharing on how to implement and sustain Lean manufacturing. We will meet at Benthos in Falmouth on Tuesday, May 3, 2005 from 7:30 – 11:30 am. Learn how Benthos has implemented Lean principals at a high mix - low volume manufacturing facility.

With the support of Mass DET training grants, Benthos has made significant strides in their journey down the road of Lean. By utilizing value stream maps, cell manufacturing, and a restructuring of their purchasing process to support lean manufacturing techniques, Benthos will showcase their success while looking for feedback from the attendees on how they can make even more improvements.
