Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes announced it will hold its next 2016 EcoLean Level 2 workshop Aug. 30-31 at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel in St. Louis. While there, the group will tour a 10-location MSO that has completely implemented lean production principles.
The EcoLean Level 2 workshop is an extensive, two-day course that further implements the Sherwin-Williams message by educating shop owners on the connection between environmentally sound business decisions and the reduction of process and environmental waste. It is exclusively designed to educate attendees about maximizing profitability by improving productivity and eliminating waste throughout their facilities.
“The best way to start to move the numbers is by scheduling efficiently, implementing damage analysis, blueprinting and a predictable parts process,” said Greg Eisenhardt, Sherwin-Williams marketing manager. “This is all discussed in our EcoLean Level 2 workshop that provides collision shop owners and managers with the tools to immediately help align their ‘Purpose, their People, and their Process’ on the production floor.”
During this workshop, the group will also tour Schaefer Autobody Centers of Crestwood, Mo. Eisenhardt notes that EcoLean courses have been built by some of the best consultants in the industry, and will provide collision repair professionals the opportunity to relax in the company of their own peers while learning from one another over the two-day period. The EcoLean Level 2 workshop curriculum includes:
- Repair Planning for Rapid Throughput
- Damage Analysis/Blueprinting
- Parts Correctness
All class materials, lunch on both days and a group dinner is included in the workshop fee. Breakfast vouchers are included with hotel room reservation. Hotel and transportation costs are the responsibility of each attendee.
