Course overview

Glass Skills Australia, partnering with Lean Skills Australasia, has developed productivity improvement related qualifications specifically for the glass processing sector. These include MSS30312 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices (targeted at operational staff) and MSS40312 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices (targeted at supervisors and team leaders).

Like any other industry, Glass Processing faces enormous pressures and challenges. Costs have been growing at about twice the inflation rate. Lean initiatives in a glass and processing environment typically result in reduced costs for improved levels of service, freeing up capacity to allow for future growth whilst avoiding a capital cost and overtime.

Typical results include 20-300% increase in throughput, reduction in space requirements, reduced errors and rework, more efficient processes, improved staff morale.

Our programs have been specifically designed for the glass sector and can include machine specific improvement programs for glass toughening, laminating, polishing, inventory management and other processes.

These programs may attract training incentives per person.
