the impressive tour at

Pratt Whitney United Technologies



Thank you for the October 2016 presentation of the PW-UTC story and plant tour.

The reasons why you were a 2016 Industry Week Best Plant Winner were of great
interest to us. The presentation laid out the challenges that PW-UTC are meeting to serve the needs associated with the new engine.


Nice to see some of the technology employed, the appearance of the shop floor, hear goals like 1.67 Cpk quality, and the starting of an apprentice program.

The presentation and tour were "impressive".

Solving the Planners Nightmare


Demand Driven Planning


                          Presented by: Keith Launchbury, CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, CDDP                                             

Plans have a habit of going wrong, and planners go to work each day with a sense of dread, wondering what phone call, email or text message will tell them something has gone wrong somewhere in the supply network.  They also know that management will blame them for not preventing the problem before it became a disaster.
