The Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association, in conjunction with the Polytechnic University, will host QUEST 2013, an initiative that for the past 10 years has served as a forum for companies looking to further their competitiveness through continuous improvement.
The event will take place May 17, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the university’s new School of Architecture.
“Through QUEST we promote the development of strategies, programs, initiatives and continuous improvement projects that result in significant benefits to the competitiveness of businesses and our economy,” said Robert L. Jiménez, coordinator and president of Professional Excellence Corp.
QUEST recognizes the progress and corporate contributions of companies and their teams in the area of ongoing improvement.
QUEST divides companies into the manufacturing, service, supply chain and energy categories. Participants are able to benefit from benchmaking, networking, recognition, leadership, training, sharing best practices, competitiveness and cost reduction.
“The work of various private companies and public sector agencies that have developed successful continuous improvement programs will be presented that day, as well as their results and achievements,” Jiménez said. “[Participants] may ask questions regarding these initiatives and take a close look at how these processes have improved productivity.”
