The one day lecture course introduces the basics of Lean enterprise principles: standardized work, workplace organization, visual controls, set-up reduction, batch size reduction, point-of-use storage, quality at the source, workforce practices and pull systems.
The course will conclude with introduction to Value Stream Mapping. Based on Learning to See, from the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI), participants will learn to identify where the value streams are in their operations, map them “from door-to-door” and realize the wastes that exist in their current process.Print Page
