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.

In Modules 1-3 you will learn and practice SLP, a powerful and universal method. In Module 4, you will use SLP to prepare a manufacturing plant layout and to prepare a detailed equipment layout for the that layout. Finally, you will learn to organize and lead your next layout project using SLP.
