Course Description:

In response to escalating attacks, we have invited a top official from the Department of Commerce to join us for a special presentation and workshop on Cybersecurity with the hope that you keep your facility safe from threats. According to NIST:

  • The average cost a manufacturer pays to overcome a data breach is $38,000
  • 55% of small businesses will experience a breach or a cyberattack

The first part of the workshop will provide an overview of best practices, including understanding threats, protective actions, and recovery. The second half of the morning will be more technical, specifically geared for those that are interested in implementing a robust deterrent system, and manufacturers that supply the Department of Defense, GSA or NASA which are required to be compliant to DFAR SP800-171.

Participants of this workshop that are defense suppliers could be eligible to receive grant-funded TMAC consulting to review and implement the requirements (inquire if interested).

Fee: $1,600 per participant
Registration Online Registration
Inquiries: Barbara Harding at 210-522-3923
Course Description:

The Supervisor Certification curriculum targets firstline supervisors at manufacturing facilities with a comprehensive overview of supervisory principles. With a strong emphasis on continuous improvement, job instruction, employee relations, problem solving, and effective communication, the course teaches students the interpersonal strategies to become a productive and respected supervisor.

Course Based on Training Within Industry (TWI). TWI is an improvement process that addresses the essential skills needed by supervisors (anyone leading others). TWI’s rich history originated in the United States in the 1940s where the program was an resounding success, boosting industrial production beyond expectations.

  • 86% of companies increased production by at least 25%
  • 100% reduced training time by more than 25%
  • 55% reduced scrap by at least 25%

During the prosperity of post-war America, the TWI program was abandoned and it soon became a faded memory. TWI is experiencing a rebirth throughout industry. Lean enterprises are increasingly turning to TWI as a means to sustain improvements and achieve standard work. TWI has been successfully applied in hundreds of companies worldwide.
