Prin of Lean Manufacturing

Course Description

Principles of Lean Manufacturing with live simulation is the first step to learning the principles of lean manufacturing. No previous experience is required. The course is a mix of classroom and live simulation. Participants begin by manufacturing simulated circuit boards in a traditional manufacturing setting. The results of the first simulation round will provide the setting for continuous improvement applying lean manufacturing principles. Participants will walk away understanding the eight wastes in manufacturing. A mixture of lecture and hands-on simulations teach lessons in standardized work, workplace organization, visual controls, set-up reduction, batch size reduction, point of use storage, quality at the source, workforce practices, and pull systems. Each designed to eliminate waste in the manufacturing process.
