What is the BAMA Roundtable all about?
The purpose of BAMA's Manufacturing Round Tables is provide a collaborative forum for sharing manufacturing know how, best practices and to leverage the synergy between its members in order to accelerate companies' growth, competitiveness and profitability.
The Bay Area Manufacturers Association (BAMA) Manufacturers RoundTable Forums focus on areas of interest for area manufacturers and are designed to promote sharing of best practices to its members with a goal of improving our manufacturing business base.
This Roundtable event will provide participants insight on how to get a Lean program going in an effective way for your business. How to do it in a cost effective way, with organizational buy-in and obtain results! This event will provide BAMA members another opportunity to collaborate with other Manufacturing Roundtable participants to gain valuable insights that can be applied to their own business.
