623-163 J-I-T Lean Enterprise

JIT Lean Enterprise explores several of the concepts/tools that are instrumental to the successful implementation of Lean. These concepts/tools include: Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) to foster quick changeover, the concept of Kanban to facilitate a pull environment, Mistake-Proofing (Poka-Yoke) and Standard Work. In addition, students will explore change management issues that are faced by lean enterprise facilitators in the work environment. Students will gain insight into how these tools and concepts can be applied in both manufacturing and transactional related fields. Students will learn firsthand how lean enterprise concepts can be applied in a continuous improvement environment. The class will incorporate theory, application and group activities where students will work collaboratively to present theory, current articles and case studies along with a project that analyzes lean practices through a factory/organization tour. The student will be expected to demonstrate knowledge of SMED, Kanban, Poka-Yoke and Standard Work to improve process related inefficiencies.
