During this program you use the powerful Value Stream Mapping tool to create a current state map of Acme Stamping, a real-world firm featured in a detailed case study. Use the VSM icons and learn the common language of Lean as you draw your current state map for Acme. Next, you analyze Acme's current state, find the non-value-added activities, and then draw a future state map for Acme that eliminates those activities. You also develop a plan for attacking those non-value-added activities.Class not currently open for registration. Click here to be notified of future offerings.
Standard Work: Learn to implement standardization and standard work in your workplace. This workshop presents an approach to eliminate waste from production processes. The methods and goals discussed in this workshop are closely related to the lean manufacturing system.Error Proofing: Using simple, usually low-cost devices, fixtures, and procedures to reduce/eliminate errors. Stops errors before defective parts are created. Frees up the need for human vigilance and memory.Class not currently open for registration. Click here to be notified of future offerings.

Prerequisite: Interest in and beginning knowledge of conventional machinery.
In this course on machine shop safety, discussion will center on proper usage and care of conventional machinery. Participants also will learn about the use of measuring tools used in the machine shop, and practice defining feed and speed, as well as how to arrive at the proper thought process to achieve accurate cutting conditions.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of basic machining methods and the fundamentals of CNC machining.
This course for shop owners, engineers, industrial workers and CNC operators will cover fundamental operations and safety procedures. Topics to be covered include horizontal/vertical band saw, drill press, lathe operation, using the lathe to form threads, mill operations, CNC coordinate systems, tool offsets and functions, and other introductory CNC topics.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of professional machining and the fundamentals of CNC machining equivalent to the Introduction to CNC Machining course.
This course is designed to provide more detailed theoretical and practical knowledge of CNC machining and will cover more advanced topics using the Purdue University Fort Wayne Haas Technical Education Center (HTEC). Advanced M and G code programming, fourth and fifth axis machining, and an introduction to CAD/CAM systems will be covered, followed by hands-on experience in the HTEC.
