Fundamentals of Continuous Improvement (Series) – Danville

September 10 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm

Sessions will meet: September 10-11, 17-18 and 24-25
8:00am – 4:30pm daily

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 Manufacturing 101 with Simulation – September 10
Value Stream Mapping & 5S/Workplace Organization – September 11
Lean Leadership/Change Management – September 17
