1-6 p.m. Pre-Conference: Volvo Plant Tour
The New River Valley Volvo Plant in Dublin, VA, is the largest Volvo truck manufacturing facility in the world. You will experience the Lean culture in action that allows nearly 3000 employees to seamlessly produce all of the Volvo trucks in North America. Take a tour of their year-old customer center and their manufacturing plant, complete with a Kaizen creation room employees can use to make tools to streamline their work. Transportation is provided and will depart from the Virginia Tech Roanoke Center (located on the 7th floor of the Roanoke Higher Education Center) at 1 p.m. The plant tour will begin at 2 p.m. Participants must wear closed-toed shoes and expect a lot of walking and standing. No photography of any kind is permissible on the tour. There are Volvo plant safety restrictions involving those with implanted artificial devices that can interact with electromagnetic fields (such as an implantable cardioverter defibrillator or pacemaker). Pre-conference registration is $125 per person.
