The educational committee of Solar Power International has selected Chaolysti to present at its poster exhibition on the topic "Using Seven Forms of Waste and Critical Path Method to Lower Residential Solar Soft Costs."
Chaolysti is excited to deepen the appreciation for continuous improvement within the solar industry, which has focused on customer acquisition and product/technology evaluation for much of the last decade. Lean is whole-systems improvement concept developed by Toyota's manufacturing process, where any assembly worker could stop the line to correct process defects and improve the overall process working upstream. Lean thinking and continuous improvement has grown to encompass non-manufacturing process improvement as well.
Chaolysti's poster will focus on how to identify the non-value-added activities using the conceptual framework of the Seven Forms of Waste and then how to apply that knowledge to process design using the Critical Path Method.
Solar Power International will be held October 20-23, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Expect over 15,000 professionals in solar energy and related fields for four days of the expo, educational sessions and workshops, general sessions and special events.
