Course detail: TECH3090 - Planning Lean Plant Layouts with SLP

Systematic Layout Planning (SLP) is recognized throughout the world as the most organized way to lay out a facility for efficient operation. Leading companies have made it a standard practice in their Lean and Six Sigma programs. This Course will prepare you to lead layout projects using SLP and to achieve remarkable results in record time.

On day one you will learn SLP, a powerful and universal method. On day two, you will use SLP to prepare and present a manufacturing plant layout. On day three, teams use SLP to prepare a detailed equipment layout for one department in the previous day's plan. In the closing session, you will learn to organize and lead your next layout project using SLP.
