Manufacturing Management Systems--User Training.
Hunt, C. L.
The Production Control Training Program is a competency-based management training program currently in operation at the Defense Systems Division of Honeywell, Incorporated. Designed with the needs of the adult learner in mind, the program involves pretests and meetings between supervisors and individual staff members to identify individualized training profiles. This assessment process has resulted in a program of workshops that is responsive to trainees' individual training needs, schedule constraints, and learning styles. As a result of the training program, the following improvements have been noted: paper work reductions, reductions in over-ordered material, improved record accuracy, and improved scheduling. These results have been achieved with a training program that costs 30 to 40 percent less than would a more traditional program. (MN)
