AICC: Grow in a Data Driven Culture

January 11, 2021 Off By Sebastian Reisig

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is offering a new four-part webinar series on Data Management with instructor Tom Weber. The series will be held once per week over four weeks beginning Thursday, January 28. 

In a data driven culture, decisions are made based on fact. Rather than relying on hunches or “how things have always been done” the company can use real-time information, often in conjunction with predictive forecasting and historical data, to determine the best next steps. Data driven decisions allow companies to efficiently identify potential risks, new opportunities, and achieve better results.

During the series, each week will offer new insights on using data for a different area: manpower, machinery, methods, and materials. 

Attendees will explore barriers created by siloed Operating Systems in order to gain full visibility into what’s happening on the shop floor and in the field, learn methods to predict problems in advance utilizing sensor data, understand how to focus on mission-critical methods and reduce costs with KPI data, and provide accurate forecasting and demand.

Companies implementing the lessons learned can see reduced machine downtime from enabling predictive maintenance, increased production capacity, lower material consumption, greater receptiveness to consumer demand, and improved ability to customize products. 

Tom Weber, AICC Technical Advisor, has 39 years of diverse packaging experience. He is recognized by industry peers to be knowledgeable and well informed in all sales, marketing, and production processes, various types of plastic and paperboard converting equipment, and technically proficient in Leadership Training and Six Sigma/LEAN methodologies. Weber managed multiple facilities in operations, managed regional business units as General Manager, and successfully directed a privately held company as its President. His career includes tenures with Tenneco, Caraustar, North America Packaging Corporation, Core Systems LLC, and CardPak. Registration for Data Management is $100 for members and $300 for non-members. This webinar is part of the All Access Pass. Pass holders can use their promo code to register at no additional cost.
