9th Annual CMS Workshop
The Expansion and Evolution of the CMS Model

Grand Hyatt
San Francisco, California
October 19-21, 2005

A workshop sponsored by Chemical Strategies Partnership and the CMS Forum.

The 9th Annual Chemical Management Services (CMS) Workshop explored CMS, a growing business model now established in eleven industry sectors, including automotive, aerospace, and electronics.

This workshop provided learning opportunities both for companies new to CMS and those who have an existing CMS program. The three-day event included case studies from CMS customers, discussion time, and breakout sessions for in-depth learning. Topics explored included:

  • How to maximize cost savings and minimize waste with CMS
  • How to evaluate and initiate a CMS program
  • How to address challenges and barriers in implementing your CMS program
  • CMS and lean manufacturing
  • Trends in the CMS industry and potential implications of REACH, RoHS and other
    emerging regulations

Participants also had the opportunity to attend industry-specific roundtable meetings, which provided a unique opportunity to meet with colleagues and have an open discussion.
