Lean Warehousing and Distribution Operations

A session at Lean Warehousing and Distribution Operations

Instructor David Graham, who spent 17 years with the North American Parts Operations Division of Toyota, where he applied lean concepts to the launch of the company’s largest distribution center, will teach “Lean Warehousing and Distribution Operations,” March 19-20, 2013.

He’ll take you through three rounds of a hands-on simulation in which you’ll identify changes, implement them, and measure the impact. Among the key concepts he’ll cover are:

•How to apply techniques such as lean storage, operational diagramming, workload planning, and visual management
•How to develop small-batch work assignments, operational diagrams, and a work load plan to create a just-in-time operation based on leveled work, pull, and continuous flow
•How to create the all-important standardized work for a lean warehouse
•Plus, you’ll also participate in a gemba walk at LeanCor’s lean distribution center
