2018 Nissan Manufacturing Innovation Summit Draws Over 375 Attendees

Published 1
Nashville Chapter 43 held its second-annual Nissan Manufacturing Innovation Summit Oct. 10-11 at the Tennessee College of Applied Technologies in Smyrna, Tennessee. 2018 SME President Thomas Kurfess, PhD, FSME, PE, was on hand to kick-off the event with his keynote: “Innovation Implementation into a Manufacturing Environment — Thinking/Looking Outside the Box.”

The summit had over 62 tabletop booths, 24 breakout sessions and over 375 attendees. It was designed to provide Nissan and other manufacturers exposure to new and innovated ideas for improving quality and lowering costs in the industry.

Chapter 43 handled registration of the booths, attendees and other logistical issues for Nissan. Two SME student chapters — Middle Tennessee State University S239 and Tennessee Technology University S215 — were both represented as well with S239 providing bags for the event.

Chapter 43 uses the proceeds of the event to fund the chapter’s scholarship program and other activities for the chapter.

According to Rachel Hall, a Nissan event coordinator, “Nissan is so grateful for the members of SME Chapter 43, otherwise, we would not have the NMIS event. The members of Chapter 43 make this event happen.”
