Principles of Lean for Business and Manufacturing – with Simulation
March 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Today’s successful companies are flexible, efficient, and responsive to change.
They deliver what their customers need, precisely when they need it. They eliminate wasteful, non-value-added production and administrative functions.
This interactive workshop, facilitated by IMEC continuous improvement experts, will introduce Lean principles to make efficiency and effectiveness part of your everyday operating culture. You’ll see how simple changes can generate increased profits and increase employee satisfaction.
This training combines comprehensive classroom instruction with simulation of a production facility, giving all industries – not just manufacturing – a hands-on understanding of the basic concepts of Lean, as well as the tools and methodology necessary to implement “lean.” Participants assume the role of production workers, applying lean tools to their individual workspaces and the entire product line. This learn-do technique, over four “shifts”, illustrates cause and effect relationships for each of the lean tools presented. Between “shifts,” participants review methodology and lessons learned from previous shifts, deciding what and how to implement while working with realistic constraints such as available resources, cash flow, and resistance to change.
