APICS Inland Empire Adds Shipping Expert to Tech Panel
November 4, 2017 Symposium to Focus on Technology Impact on Supply Chain

CLAREMONT, CA – October 25, 2017 APICS Inland Empire Chapter (APICS-IE), the leading association for supply chain and operations professionals, announces the addition of Thomas Jelenić, Vice President of Pacific Merchant Shipping Association to its Expert Panel that will discuss their experiences in “Leveraging Technologies for Supply Chain Success”.

“Whether importing finished goods or manufacturing and/or assembling parts locally, technologies are evolving to make the supply chain more efficient” notes Lisa Anderson, APICS-IE Chapter Leader and President of LMA Consulting Group. From autonomous forklifts to identifying the contents of a specific shipping container, technology is improving the efficiencies and information along the supply chain. “The advances are making information more accessible and suppliers more efficient. Yet, sometimes the information becomes overwhelming. We are looking forward to a good discussion and hearing first-hand experiences about using technology to leverage the supply chain” she concluded.

Mr. Jelenić will join panelists:Terrie Dean, Director, ISCM Compliance Technology at The Walt Disney Company, Craig Young, Vice President of Operations at Tropicale Foods, Inc. and Prof Stephen Ritchie, Professor, Civil Engineering, University of California, Irvine

The symposium attracts supply chain professionals from various aspects of the supply chain: systems, process, procurement, production and others. Platinum sponsor, Reveel, addresses the transportation aspect of the supply chain. “Once the goods are ready, it’s all about getting them to the right place at the right time. With today’s complex and congested road, rail and sky ways, it takes intelligence and analytics to do it efficiently” commented Vice President, Keith Durna. Transportation has become more than simply getting goods from point A to point B. “The need for intelligence to drive analytics has led to the transparency that leveled the transportation playing field. This has been a great benefit in addressing customer requirements for just in time supply” he said.

The APICS-IE Fall Symposium: “Leveraging Technologies for Supply Chain Success” will be held Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 8:00-11:30 AM at the Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona. Fees to attend are $15 for members, $25 for non-members and students are free. A breakfast buffet is included.

Put the Spark Back in Manufacturing

April 17th, 2014

The APICS-IE executive panel and networking symposium is an opportunity to join with your colleagues (and competitors) to learn and collaborate.

Only those manufacturers and distributors who want to thrive in 2014 will join in, collaborate and be a bigger part of the community! In todays’ increasingly complex world, seemingly touchy-feely topics like collaboration and community are a must. Who can know “all the answers” as to how to improve operational performance, decrease customer lead times, create customer loyalty, accelerate cash flow, quicken the product development life cycle etc.? No one I know; however, the “right” team of people do. Thus to be successful, it’s becoming more and more critical to seek out opportunities to join with your colleagues (and even competitors) to learn and collaborate. The APICS Inland Empire’s executive panel and networking symposium on May 3rd is one of these rare opportunities.

The Inland Empire Chapter of A.P.I.C.S., the national association for operations management advancing productivity, innovation and competitive success, is igniting manufacturers and distributors with its 3rd Annual Executive Panel & Networking Symposium: Filling the Skills Gap: Putting the “Spark” Back in Manufacturing & Distribution on May 3rd. With manufacturing making a strong comeback, there is an even greater need to attract new talent and build more employee skills for manufacturers and distributors. Through breakfast networking and panel discussion with Noel Massie, UPS Southern California, Roy Paulson, President of Paulson Manufacturing, Alan Dunn, Founder of the Manufacturing Executive Institute and Dwane Lamb, Director of Operations with PEG Grand Terrace (Wilden Pump), attendees can look for new ideas to bring some energy back to their companies.

The Symposium brings together manufacturing and distribution-minded professionals to exchange ideas and hear from business leaders on what they are doing to recruit, engage, train and motivate their workforce.There will also be a focus on how to kindle ideas on recruiting new talent to look at manufacturing as a career choice and how to train new employees so they are work-ready right out of school.

The 3rd Annual Executive Panel & Networking Symposium: Filling the Skills Gap: Putting the “Spark” Back in Manufacturing & Distribution will be held Saturday, May 3, 2014 at the Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona, Calif. Fees to attend the event from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM are $15 for members, $25 for non-members and students are free. Breakfast buffet is included.
