Should You Attend Both or Just One Production Seminar?

We are offering these two courses together to give you the opportunity to expand your knowledge quickly and at less expense, however, each course was developed to stand alone. You don't need to attend one course in order to participate in the other. Attending both will grow you as a Leader and then go more in-depth in to the tools and practices you need to begin measuring your machines production, creating benchmarks and tracking improvements and creating not only production success but financial success as well.
