Key Concepts of Lean

A session at Key Concepts of Lean

Wednesday 22nd August, 2012

8:00am to 4:00pm (EST)

Understand how all the key lean tools work together as a fundamentally better business system and the step-by-step thought process for creating it.

You'll understand the major principles, concepts, and techniques of a lean business system. And you’ll gain a better understanding of the components and underlying philosophy of lean, based on the Toyota Production System (TPS), and how the elements and philosophy work together to create a lean enterprise.

The workshop uses lectures, videos, discussions, and a simulation, to show you how:
•Training, involvement, and supervisory practices create the foundation for lean.
•The roles of stability, flow, leveling, pull, and kaizen.
•How the PDCA (plan, do, check, act) discipline holds processes together and improves them on a continuous basis.
•The role of management in creating and supporting a lean enterprise.
•The role of hoshin planning (policy deployment) as a management system.
•The implementation challenges you’ll face and how to overcome them.

The $1600 tuition includes all participant materials, breakfast, lunch, and snacks each day.
