We'll begin meeting again next Tuesday, March 14 with a special treat, a tour of the Smooth-On plant in Macungie, PA. The meeting will begin at 7 PM, but come as early as 6:30 PM for dinner, which the group will provide. (If you’re coming for dinner, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, so we get enough food.)
The address is:
Smooth-On Inc. 5600 Lower Macungie Rd Macungie, PA 18062
Abstract: Smooth-On is a large chemical manufacturer that
recently moved into a new facility just south of Allentown. Prior to the
move, we used VFP to do Order Entry, Inventory Control, Purchase Orders,
Formula Management and Batch Scheduling, among other things. When we made
the move, we took it to the next level and used VFP to Automate much of the
manufacturing process. This tour will be conducted by the COO and explain
the process, show examples of the types of things are made with our products,
and discuss the benefits and challenges of the transformation.
After this meeting, we’ll meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every other month through November, so mark your calendar for May 9, July 11, September 12, and November 14.
