Day 2 - 8 am-4 pm - Participants will work together, developing processes and visual audits to eliminate or significantly reduce the identified deficiencies.
Day 3 - 8 am-4 pm - We will explore the use of current technologies readily available throughout the industry to collect the data from these audits / processes for use in regression analysis, supporting capital investments, etc.
