Manufacturing Skills Development (CEU Credits: 1.4)

Manufacturing Skills Development (CEU Credits: 1.4)


This training is designed for students who are either new to the manufacturing environment or those who need a more thorough understanding of manufacturing. Manufacturing Skills Development will provide a foundation for the processes, approach and culture needed to run an effective and efficient operation. The Center provides this through four (4) half-day sessions of classroom/activities covering the following topics:

Quality Management Systems (4 hrs.) – This session will introduce the student to the systems and processes necessary to deliver a conforming product on time and satisfy the customer by controlling variation in the process.  

Problem Solving Skills (4 hrs.) – This session will introduce various tools and techniques available for problem solving in the manufacturing environment, focusing on the ability to identify the problem, isolate the root cause, and document the entire process. Discussions, exercises and logical thinking will be used.

Lean Manufacturing (4 hrs.) – This session will give students an understanding of Lean principles and techniques and how they can be applied to maximize customer value, minimize waste and reduce cost. Students also will gain knowledge of the eight types of waste that exist in every organization and what constitutes a value-added process. A hands-on simulation will be used to demonstrate Lean tool application.

Culture & Motivation (4 hrs.) – In this session students will learn methods and means for corporate/operational communication along with motivational techniques. Conflict Management also will be covered.
