Johnson Controls Plant Tour Details

Join the Manufacturing Leadership Council at the Johnson Controls factory in Norman, OK for an opportunity to tour the facility and learn about the implementation of the Johnson Controls Manufacturing System (JCMS) within the facility. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to see how JCI is utilizing mobility tools and other enabling technologies to drive improvements within the manufacturing organization. This JCI facility is an excellent representation of the complexities of a large scale operation within the Building Technologies & Solutions business of JCI.

The JCI Enterprise Manufacturing Excellence organization has been on a journey to realize our vision of "Becoming the most operationally capable company in the world". One of the primary transformations within the organization has been the global deployment of JCMS. The extended team has worked diligently to develop and procure leading technologies to enable the achievement of our vision and to engage employees at all levels, in the process.

Attend this plant tour, which will be followed by an executive roundtable discussion on Mobility Tools and Enabling Technologies, and walk away with actionable insights, including:

  • How mobility applications are engaging employees at all levels within the plant
  • How enabling technologies are providing real-time feedback and monitoring of key processes
  • How applications are going beyond mere databases and information storage and are now driving the process robustness
  • How applications can drive the nature of shop floor engagement and empowerment
