Event description

Description

Lean is a management philosophy based on the Toyota Production System (TPS), where the objective is to identify and eliminate everything that does not add value (waste) in the eyes of the customer through continuous improvement that improves both the operational efficiency and financial performance of a business.

During our 5-day classroom course, our experts will guide you through hands-on exercises and simulations. You will learn how to apply the 8-Step Structured Problem-Solving methodology that includes Value Stream Mapping (VSM), Root Cause Analysis, 5S, Standard Work, Kanban and Pull Systems, Total Productive Maintenance, Quick Changeover, Visual Management and Controls, and Mistake Proofing.

The is a very team-based, hands-on course designed for anyone needing to understand and apply lean principles along with the 8-Step Structured Problem-Solving methodology.
