    We would also encourage users to submit ideas for sessions that you want more information about even though you might not want to present the topic.  While we would love for more users to present, we know that is difficult for some people.  At a minimum we want to make sure we are covering the information you want to see.  We look forward to seeing you all in Houston.

    Hi All,

    Happy Summit 2021 call for Proposal!  As Lewis and Dave noted, we want to hear from everyone what kind of sessions you want at Summit 2021, even if you are not the speaker. In Lewis's instructions, make sure when you get to Tagging your post, be sure to choose "2021 Summit Session" in the "Context" section.  All other tags can simply be based on the content of your session. This is important so we pull your submission into the NAV/BC Call for Proposal list.

    Lets' Go NAV/BC Members! Start entering your Proposals :)

    Thanks,
    Steve

    You know, they could have made this a whole lot easier. I would love to have a presentation on how others are doing production scheduling. We are looking at Netronics and Insight Works. However, finding how to create a proposal is far too convoluted.

    Hi Gregory,

    I think the idea of the proposals is for those who are going to present to propose the topic of their presentation.

    I could probably do a presentation on production scheduling. I think there are other products in the market I've seen used. Planner One (which has discontinued it's offer in BC unfortunately), Preactor (which is a custom integration), PlanetTogether (which is also a custom integration), Netronics and InsightWorks.  I think InsightWorks is coming out with some new scheduling technology too.

    I'd probably want to get into planning in some depth - MPS and MRP. Forecasts, etc.  and then talk to the concepts of scheduling including the different levels: Capacity Planning, Production Scheduling and Sequencing and setup time optimization for instance.

    Let me see if I can convince my colleague to pitch in.  Let me know if this would sound interesting.  It might be at a high level. 1 hour is not enough time to get into the depths.

    Greg and Robert,

    Thank you for both your comments and throwing your hat in the ring. Greg, I agree it is a little cumbersome and difficult to submit a few lines to submit an idea for a session and if you want to be the speaker. Robert, in all the years we have had a Call for Proposal we have never directed this to speakers only but to all NAV/BC Members and see "what" they want sessions they are looking for to learn from. We took those plus others submitted by members who wanted to speak and the Track Leaders evaluated them all to come up with the best of the best topics and learning experience for the members.

    Knowing you both want to submit a session, below is a simple form to fill out that I can add to the submission list from the DAC site. Fill the answers out and send back to me. Big Thank you.

    1. Submission Session Title:
    2. Who Should Attend? (i.e. Finance, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, PM, etc..):
    3. Description of Session:
    4. Format? (Presentation, How2, Member Showcase, Deep Dive
    5. Level: (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced):
    6. Presenter/Speaker Referral Name and Email:
    7. Presenter/Speaker Referral Email:
    8. Submitter Name and Email:

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I stand corrected Steve!  I've only spoken at Summit the 1 time, although I've done the Canadian version several times.  I've always approached it as the person offering the session :D
