Purdue to offer lean product development workshops
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University's Manufacturing Extension Partnership will present half-day workshops on lean product development at sites throughout Indiana during September, October and November.
Lean Product Development offers tools and methods to reduce risk and improve time to market for new products. Workshop participants also will learn how to improve product differentiation and reduce product cost.
The workshops will be led by Rich Meyer, who has taught innovation, product development and growth principles since joining MEP in 2007. Before that, he was a research and development director for a Tier 1 automotive supplier.
The workshops will be held in Indianapolis on Sept. 27, Warsaw on Oct. 17, New Albany on Oct. 25, Evansville on Nov. 8 and South Bend on Nov. 16.
Cost is $99 per person.
