The Lean 101 will equip manufacturers to be more competitive in their respective markets. Through understanding how to implement Lean Principles, participants can make changes in their manufacturing plant that will eliminate waste, maximize productivity and increase profits. The class will yield immediate results as students return to their workplace with an understanding of waste and how to begin eliminating it from the process.
Participants will learn the basic definitions of terms used in Lean Manufacturing. They will learn how to reduce manufacturing lead times by 80%, reduce work in progress up to 90%, reduce floor space up to 75%, and improve quality up to 90%. The class consists of a combination of classroom learning and live simulation.
Through four rounds of simulation, they will apply Lean Thinking concepts to the model, and see how the tools they’re learning about work together.
