2014 Fundamental Data Analysis @ AJU Charleston, SC
Nov 4 @ 8:00 am – Nov 6 @ 4:00 pm

AstenJohnson University (AJU) was established in 2005 as one way to invest in the development of future papermakers and to provide a forum for learning and sharing of common business practices. This AJU session will focus on the collection and use of process data to trouble shoot and improve processes and products. By concentrating on a set of powerful fundamental tools used in Six Sigma, we will be able to provide students with specific, applicable information that can be put into practice immediately upon returning to the mill. We will use examples of papermaking data in the training, and encourage participants to bring your examples of data for past problems or current challenges to explore in class.


This training session has been created to address the needs of individuals responsible for process monitoring and optimization, product conformity and cost containment. This training is well suited for process engineers and technicians, quality engineers and technicians, and management and supervisory roles.


The tuition is $900 and covers your hotel room, meals and all training materials. You will be housed at the Hyatt Place Charleston Airport. The only additional expense to you will be your travel costs to and from Charleston. Class will start at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, November 4 and conclude at 12 noon on Thursday, November 6. Detailed logistics of the training will be provided upon your enrollment. The registration form should be completed and returned to your AstenJohnson sales representative or to Sue McCann.
