Wednesday, September 20, 2017 – Corporate College East

5PM – Technical Session: TBD
6PM – DINNER
645PM – REGISTRATION, NETWORKING AND ANNOUNCEMENTS.
7PM – Member Session: Tony Tenaglier, “Quality Heat Treating: What heat treating can teach you about your quality system.”  Heat treating might be at first glance a relatively simple process. Just stick the parts into a furnace, adjust the temperature, and set the timer. Ding! The parts come out fully “cooked”. However, the attention to detail is what sets good quality heat treating and poor heat treating apart. It’s also in the ability to capture the right feedback from the equipment, the operators, and even the customers to then adjust the process. Heat treating is not simply a science, but an art.
Tony Tenaglier moved to Cleveland, OH after receiving his degree in Material Science Engineering at the University of Connecticut. It was there where he learned that success was not good luck, but rather good skill. Today he implements the importance of recognizing and practicing the right skills to make a process efficient and even fun. Process engineering (and even running a business) is not just about implementation of specific details in science and lean manufacturing, but also an understanding of the bigger picture for how all the elements fit in. Currently he is the process engineer and quality manager at General Metal Heat Treating. In his spare time he is a co-organizer of The Moral Inquiries Philosophy Meetup Group, an author, and an avid runner with a goal of running a marathon in every state.
