About the Event:

Optimal Inventory levels.  Using beads to demonstrate inventory concepts.   

Join us for this highly interaction simulation where, in teams the participants will determine the optimal inventory levels to supply customer demand. This presentation has zero PowerPoint slides, but rather we will be using assembled beads for the final product.Be prepared to be surprised to discover how your team works together to calculate the “perfect” level of inventory in a fun learning environment. You may want to take the idea back to work to share a different perspective with other people in your company.

Learn and have fun!

About the Presenter:

Deb Hansford, CPIM-F, CIRM, CSCP, CLTD, C.P.M., CPSM

Deb loves to help people learn in a fun, creative and interactive environment. Her first paying job as an instructor was when she was in high school, helping students in elementary school. She took an exciting detour working in supply chain for companies such as Anheuser-Busch, Cummins and WW Grainger before returning to her original passion and starting her own training company, PreCrest, LLC.

Her classes are engaging and memorable for learners as she involves them in the learning process and provides motivation for success. Her class format includes face-to-face, webinars and blended learning by utilizing her learning system.

Deb is currently recognized by APICS as a Master instructor for CPIM, CSCP, Instructor Training and Applied Instructor Skills. She is also recognized by APICS in the front of the courseware books for her content contributions to CPIM, CSCP and Train-the-Trainer.
