Full-Day: Lean Manufacturing 101 with Simulation

This interactive workshop combines comprehensive classroom instruction with simulation of a production facility. The basic concepts of Lean manufacturing and the tools and methodology necessary to implement “lean” on the shop floor are demonstrated through a hands-on activity, in which participants assemble a product on a simulated factory floor, incorporating the various principles of Lean along the way. By participating in a Lean Simulation, you experience how to use half the manufacturing space and half the effort to produce products in half the time with fewer defects.

This full-day program combines a comprehensive classroom presentation with hands-on simulation of a production facility. In this workshop, we introduce the basic concepts of Lean manufacturing and demonstrate the tools and methodology necessary to implement “lean” on the shop floor.  This learn-do technique, over four “shifts”, illustrates cause and effect relationships for each of the lean tools presented.  Participants review methodology and lessons learned from previous shifts, deciding what and how to implement while working with realistic constraints such as available resources, cash flow, and resistance to change. This is a sponsored training offered by our MEP affiliate in Illinois, IMEC. The workshop will be held in Nashville, Il.
