BREA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- Parsec Automation Corp. (Parsec), a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and the leading provider of real-time performance management (RPM) and enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI), today introduced its "Executive Seminar Series" designed to help manufacturers understand how to both increase asset utilization and drive competitive advantage.

Parsec will offer a wealth of opportunities to learn from and interact with industry forerunners and thought leaders. The interactive seminars will feature thought provoking discussions with industry experts. The industry experts will share proven techniques that will give manufacturers the ability to increase their productivity and efficiency at a minimal cost using real-time performance management solutions.

Seminars will be held in major cities across the United States. The first seminar will be held in Microsoft's Los Angeles Office on March 28, 2007, and focuses on the real world success of improving operational efficiencies. Guest speakers include Kenneth Jones, Lyndon Group, and Ron Calame, California Manufacturing Technology Consulting.

"It is an honor to share with the event's participants the financial and technology benefits that are realized as a result of implementing real-time performance initiatives," said Ken Jones, Managing Director of The Lyndon Group. "I look forward to sharing tangible guidance with attendees and encouraging them to explore a lean culture for their businesses."

"There is a fundamental shift underway in how companies perceive and manage Lean manufacturing processes in their organization. Traditionally, companies look at Lean as a burden to overcome. Today, companies are approaching Lean holistically, balancing real-time performance management with Lean, to increase revenue and operational differentiation," said Ron Calame, CPIM, California Manufacturing Technology Consulting. "This seminar is a great forum in which to share information and best practices that can help manufacturers increase profitability and be more successful in today's complex environment."
