The CTPM Continuous Improvement Forum is an annual networking event held since 1998, which includes presentations by keynote speakers, leading practitioners, and improvement teams from companies progressing their TPM & Operational Excellence Improvement Journey. Each year we select a different theme to base the conference around with the aim to reflect on what is happening in the current economic climate, making it relevant and worthwhile for all our attendees.
Note: Due to changing industry demands and the current pandemic, there has not been a forum held in the last few years.
The team presentations have been part of the Forums since the beginning. Known as the Aussie Cup Team Competition, some 62 teams to date have presented at our Forums, with all involved recognised for their achievements returning to their workplaces inspired and motivated to further progress their TPM & Operational Excellence Improvement Journey's. The competition provides an ideal opportunity for sites or departments to showcase their improvement activity through the achievements of their teams.
Continuous Improvement Forum 2016
Celebrating our 20th year since establishment, the 2016 Continuous Improvement Forum held in partnership with apicsAU on the 17-18 August 2016 at Bankstown Sports Club Conference Centre was one to remember. Known as Sydney’s premier Continuous Improvement (CI) event in 2016, we teamed up with other leading organisations and opened the Forum to a wide range of manufacturing and supply chain companies.
The theme engaging all your people to ensure sustainable results, came about from extensive research into the major challenges facing organisations as they progress their Improvement Activities. It appears we all understand most of the CI tools, however it is the buy-in or lack of buy-in especially from the experienced workforce that can impact the most on the sustainability and ultimately pay-back.
The Forum Technical Committee of 12 experienced Continuous Improvement practitioners brought together an impressive list of 25 presenters with various levels of experience. Companies represented at the forum included:
