Principles of Lean Manufacturing A One-Day Interactive Workshop
The Workshop:

In this workshop each participant is provided a hands-on introduction to the newest interpretations of the principles of Lean Manufacturing, along with the methodology to implement those notions into a modern manufacturing or service environment. Workshop participants function as “virtual employees” of the fictitious Time Wise, Inc. Clock Factory and are able to experience for themselves the impact of such traditional Lean techniques as elimination of waste, improved material flow, 5S workplace organization, cellular flow, value stream mapping, the benefits of teamwork, assuring quality at the source, inspection and mistake-proofing at the source and the impact of vendor-related activities in an integrated supply chain. By utilizing a simulated learning environment, workshop participants experience a complete Lean transformation and learn how to implement Lean principles throughout their own manufacturing enterprise.

Results of Lean Manufacturing:

Participants in our workshops have reported significant results after implementing Lean principles in their own enterprises including:

  • 90% reduction in lead times
  • 85% reduction in work-in-process
  • 85% improvement in quality
  • 50% increase in productivity
  • 50% reduction in floor space


Who Should Attend:

  • Business and manufacturing leaders who would like to understand the basic Lean concepts and start on the road to Lean Manufacturing.
  • Companies that are interested in reducing their inventory, lowering their manufacturing costs and improving their quality, on-time delivery performance and productivity.
  • Service organizations in healthcare, banking, education, transportation, travel, construction, hospitality, food service and distribution.
  • Small and medium sized manufacturers.
