Lean Simulation


This class demonstrates how Lean can be applied to an organization to maximize customer value, minimize waste, and reduce costs through workplace organization and visual controls, cellular manufacturing, quality at the source and pull scheduling. This three-round, lean factory set-up simulation gives participants an understanding of how Lean principles, when effectively applied, can positively impact their company. Learn how to transform a traditional manufacturer into a Lean producer by focusing on material and information flow resulting in lead-time reductions.

CLASS OBJECTIVES: At the end of the class, attendees should be able to understand:

  • The principles and objectives of Lean manufacturing
  • How continuous improvement must be constantly reinforced
  • Identify and eliminate waste to improve processes
  • How a Lean approach can help companies improve in many areas of manufacturing including:
    • Reducing manufacturing lead-times 
    • Improve on-time shipments
    • Reduce inventories 
    • Improve quality 
    • Increase labor productivity 
    • Reduce floor space requirements
