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 – January 30
Lean Leadership/Change Management – February 6
Value Stream Mapping & 5S/Workplace Organization – February 13
Quick Changeover – February 20
Cellular/Flow Manufacturing – February 27
Pull/Kanban Systems & Total Productive Maintenance – March 6

Cancellations made within 7 days of series start may be subject to a 50% cancellation fee.
