Lean Processing: Enhancing Efficiency in Manufacturing and Service Organizations

This seminar focuses on Lean processing and includes the definition of lean, the different types of waste, the 5 S’s and how they impact efficiency, lean building blocks and value stream mapping. Participants engage in a series of interactive lean manufacturing simulations where they measure productivity and discuss and implement ways to use lean techniques to improve results. A review of case studies of companies that implemented Lean and the benefits they received from the implementation provide seminar application and reflection opportunities. Participants increase their contributions in lean environments and on lean teams.
