Learn the principles of Lean Manufacturing: applying Lean concepts such as standardized work, batch-size reductions, pull systems and more. You'll experience firsthand how Lean improves quality, delivery, performance, reduces time and Work-in-Process (WIP) and increases profits. Most important, learn how Lean makes the job easier!

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.

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.
