Lean Manufacturing Techniques

19th June 2018, Clevedon


Course Overview

This course will equip you to identify and reduce waste within your business processes, and to optimise the efficiency of production flow. I aim to enable you to identify the various areas in which waste can lurk, and provide you with an arsenal of specific strategies to crack down on this waste. I will walk you through a variety of practical techniques for waste identification and reduction, including the Japanese 5S Housekeeping method, the Gemba walk, and Kanban systems, as well as the use of visualisation tools to conceptualise improvements. I combine the knowledge I have gained from my own experience in manufacturing with interactive hands-on exercises and practical applications as I equip you to make clear and measurable improvements using Lean Manufacturing Techniques, drawing on the philosophy of Dr. W. Edwards Deming.
