This class will provide each participant with a foundation of knowledge in lean manufacturing techniques. We base our approach on the principles advocated by James Womack in the best-selling book, Lean Thinking, and taught at the Lean Enterprise Institute. These world-class techniques have been adapted for small and mid-sized companies by National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).

The training combines lecture and simulation.  Students begin by “manufacturing” air compressor compartments in a simulated traditional manufacturing process. The results of the first simulation round will provide the basis for continuous improvement as participants apply the lean manufacturing principles in subsequent rounds. Students will learn about One-Piece Flow, TPM, Cellular Production, TAKT Time, Pull and Kanbans, POUS, Quick Changeover, Quality at the Source, Batch Reduction, Teams, Standardized Work, Workplace Organization, and Visual and Plant Layout. Each concept will build your ability to eliminate manufacturing waste.
Participants will:

  • Learn how to identify the eight wastes
  • Understand how various lean tools help to eliminate waste
  • Have an understanding of lean terminology
  • Understand the importance of eliminating waste
