What people are saying about the San Diego Consortium:

"Being a member of the San Diego Consortium has provided many benefits for our company, and for our people. The AME Consortium has helped us develop the capability of our employees and the management team, skills we have leveraged to improve our business processes and value streams. This has in-turn improved the company's delivery of valuable services and quality products to our customers. Being a consortium member provides important access and interactions with local companies who are also on their lean journey. This permits exchange of ideas and sharing best practices with others, which would be very difficult without the consortium. I would highly recommend that Company's in any industry explore AME and the consortium concept."

"Membership provided invaluable opportunities to benchmark with like-minded lean thinking companies to see how they approached and implemented some of the incredibly effective lean tools. 
Most often, the member companies were further along in their implementation of a lean tool, so it gave us an opportunity to pick their brain and learn from their mistakes.

Ken Rolfes provided a tremendous boost to the learning process by directing our questions to the applicable source or drew upon his wealth of knowledge and experience to answer our questions directly.

In summary, I believe all our experience and involvement with the AME San Diego Consortium was a wonderful example of learn, share, and grow – and a major reason HME is one of the 2019 AME Manufacturing Excellence Award recipients."
