Production Management Institute (PMI)
Where technical personnel learn to improve personal performance and recognize how their individual successes contribute to enhanced total business performance.
The Roger F. Cocivera Production Management Institute (PMI) enhances and develops supervisory and management performance in textile services companies by:
- Imparting thorough understanding of best practices in laundry operations
- Enhancing supervisory and leadership skills
PMI prepares a promising person to increase her/his value to your company immediately through intensive formal education in plant operations—four consecutive days of classes—as well as informal exchange of ideas and experiences with other laundry operators from around the world.
PMI is about today. It’s how leaders in your business get a better perspective on what they do, day in and day out. They see where they fit into the industry. They learn about performance standards and techniques. They get the message they can grow personally and contribute more to what you do.
First-time PMI attendees receive instruction in these topics, identified collectively as PMI Production:
- Linen Management
- Maintenance Management
- Pack Out
- Production Scheduling
- Soil Sort
- Steam Tunnel Finishing/Conditioning
- Stockroom Management
During the next 12 months, in their everyday workplaces or homes, students participate in a series of self-paced, online modules on important management topics such as communications, finance and leadership. The program concludes with PMI Management, four days of interactive sessions that further refine participants’ production and laundry-specific management skills. Upon completion of the classroom and online training, students are tested and can earn the Certified Professional Laundry Manager designation, the baseline of knowledge for all graduates.
Many students have said that the greatest value they obtain from PMI is peer networking, not only during the PMI sessions, but sometimes years later. PMI alumni regularly exchange information or help each other solve problems in their plants long after they graduate from the program. For all these reasons and more, PMI is an investment in both the short and long-term success of your management staff, and by extension, your business itself.
