When the plant hinders growth. What strategy should be adopted in a context of labour shortage?


** Event in French only ** Conference offered by Mr Benoit Chouinard, Engineer and President of Progima

Your sales are doing well, but the factory does not supply and the lack of employees makes the situation worse? With concrete examples, see how other companies have implemented an operational strategy to overcome obstacles to their growth.


Do you recognize yourself in this kind of problem?

  • Your sales increase while your margins decrease
  • The factory struggles to produce what is sold
  • You lose sales because of long manufacturing times
  • Work in the factory is not efficient
  • There are constant equipment shortages
  • You lack skilled labour
  • Too much overtime is paid 


In this conference, we will adress about the following topics:

  • Determine your production method
  • Align your industrial strategy with your business strategy
  • Better planning to better manage capacity
  • Have the right information and equipment to produce
  • Pitfalls to avoid and lessons learned
  • Examples of real projects
