Norcross, Georgia -- September 13, 2012 -- Three new training classes are now available from AkzoNobel Sikkens Acoat Selected. Each of the classes has been approved for I-CAR points through the I-CAR Industry Training Alliance program.
The new classes are available to all Acoat Selected members and include two that are specifically aligned for those pursuing a Process Centered Environment culture.
Cycle-time Processing Reduction focuses on the impact of production management on cycle time. It’s not about working faster or harder. It’s about working smarter.
Rules of the Road: Standardization and Visual Management teaches how to create and implement standardization and a visual workplace while continuously eliminating waste and variability.
PCE Ready addresses the processes that must be in place to manage every incoming vehicle such that it can flow without delay or interruption through the repair process.
The Process Centered Environment Program is a continuous improvement initiative developed by AkzoNobel to enable the company's collision centre customers to create a sustainable competitive advantage by utilizing a series of interconnecting / interactive events that allows a product or process to flow freely and continuously. PCE is characterized by an intense focus on two driving factors: Creating customer value and the reduction/elimination of waste
“The addition of these classes expands our industry-leading class assortment to twenty-three courses,” says Barry Rinehart, AkzoNobel North American Services Manager. “The combination of the Sikkens brand paint technology and our leading edge business education programs and highly skilled Business Consultants that work with our business clients has created metrics of success that exceed industry trends.”
