 Add to Calendar

Zoom Meeting


 Directions

Continuous improvement in Manufacturing is all about the implementation of many of the “lean” techniques and tools used for:

  • Reducing costs, delivery and process time
  • Eliminating wasted time
  • Increasing overall internal customer and external customer satisfaction
  • Improving employee involvement, morale and the quality of life
  • Helping to transform organizations from the status quo to a continuous improvement culture

 

The focus of this workshop is to provide an introduction and history of “lean” initiatives as well as an understanding of principles, such as creating a lean culture, continuous improvement, value added, continuous flow and the elimination of waste.  We will also introduce the tools of lean such as 5S, value stream mapping and the meaning of a kaizen event.  We will discuss an actual case study from a company that realized many of the benefits mentioned above.

Along with understanding the basics of continuous improvement in manufacturing, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What is Continuous Improvement as well as how it transforms a company culture.
  • Why should we implement continuous improvement initiatives?
  • Where should they be applied?
  • Who should be involved?
  • How should implementation take place?
