Event: Fundamentals of Continuous Improvement (Series)


This series has been canceled. For more information, please contact Emily Lee at elee@imec.org or 309-677-4633. Thank you.
Meeting today’s manufacturing challenges demands a lean enterprise — streamlining product design and manufacturing by applying lean manufacturing principles, concepts and techniques. The primary focus of this effort is the continuous elimination of waste in the company’s business processes. Implementing Lean practices involves changing a work area or a business process to maximize efficiency, improve quality and safety, eliminate unnecessary motion and inventory, and save time and resources. Participants also engage with real-life scenarios from the hands-on factory simulation throughout the day!

By experiencing the six course simulations in the Continuous Improvement Series, participants will have the knowledge, tools and application examples required to begin a Lean transformation.

The six courses within the series include:
  • Lean 101 - Oct 6
  • Lean Leadership/Change Management – Oct 20
  • Value Stream Mapping & 5S/Workplace Organization – Oct 27
  • Quick Changeover – Nov 3
  • Cellular/Flow Manufacturing - Nov 10
  • Pull/Kanban Systems & Total Productive Maintenance – Nov 17
